How many ounces in a #10 can?

I am trying to compare pricing on sauerkraut and my supplier only offers it in #10 cans.  I have purchased a bit to get started in 32 oz jar and do not know whether to go with the cans or not.  Any input would be great.  I feel that I will be going through a lot of it so the quantity in a can vs. jar would be beneficial if the $$$ is right.

    Actually the can is a size or volume standard. The weight will depend on the product packed in the can.   Here is a ref. for different foods.
    http://www.mealtime.org/uploadedFiles/Mealtime/Content/10ozyield.pdf   ... sauerkraut is shown as 'drained' weight of 80 oz.
     
    Common can sizes: http://www.ochef.com/604.htm
    A #10 can should be 13cup or 25-26 servings @ 1/2 cup per serving.   ... sauerkraut on a HD  should be more than twice this.

    Silver Floss. Can't get it her in Ohio. I was my wife's favorite. We used to bring back small and large cans of it whenever we drove up to Connecticut. Of course, we'd also bring back five-pound boxes of Roesseler's hot dogs, too.

    Drained weight is what you need to look at to make any comparison.
