The numbers are standard. I suspect the other site just rounded off to 1 TB. There is no practical difference between 1.00 an 1.07 tablespoons. You can vary more than that by how you pack the scoop.

That's such a tiny difference it won't matter for the finished product. .07 of a tablespoon is not even measurable.

Thanks Andy and GotGarlic. If it's negligible I have more choice across brands.

Basically standard and I wouldn't worry about a fraction of a fraction of a measurement. That small amount would make little to no difference in a finished product. I simply use the list as a general guide, depending on what I'm making.
