Unflavored gelatin question

On a box of unflavored gelatin, it shows on the bottom 1oz net weight. There are 4 packets in the box. Is each packet 1 oz or is all four together 1 oz? My assumption was that each packet is 1 oz, but, I want to make sure before I mess up a whole lot of cheesecakes.

I can't believe I still have a box!

Mine is Knox Original Unflavored Gelatine - Net Wt 1-oz (28g) - on the side under Nutritional Information it says that a serving size is 1 envelope (7g) and there are 4 Servings.

So, yes - 1 envelope is 1/4 oz.

Thank you!! I might have put the wrong amount. I bought too much.I didn't read the recipe very well :o) I guess having too much is better than getting it together and not having enough.

LOL - I think a 1-oz box is the smallest you can buy .... which explains why I still have some left. I only needed 1 envelope!

Here in the U.S., chick, we get Knox gelatine in boxes containing envelopes of gelatine. The small box contains four 7 gram envelopes. Hope this helps.

3 teaspoons gelatine = 9 grams
OR
approx. 2 1/3 teaspoons [7 g] per envelope ...

Working with American recipes, I have used 2 1/4 teaspoons as close enough...
