    A cup contains 130% vit C; how many mg is that? (x mg/60 mg)*100 = 130%. Solve for x and I get something like 78 mg vit C in a cup of the product. I think a cup is 8 oz; how many oz do we need to obtain 60 mg if the 8 oz cup contains 78 mg.
    Wouldn't that be 8 oz x (60/78) = ?? or approximately 6 oz.
