How Many Grams in a Teaspoon?
Grams(g) to Teaspoons Conversion
Choose an ingredient from the dropdown and type a value in the Grams(g) field to convert the weight to Teaspoons:
Converting grams to teaspoons isn’t easy because they measure two different things. Grams are used to measure mass while a teaspoon is used to measure volume. To convert between the two units of measure, you will need to first convert grams into Milliliters.
To convert grams to milliliters divide the weight in grams by the density in g/mL.
Milliliters = Weight in grams divided by density in g/mL
Once you have the milliliters value, you can convert to teaspoons.
There are 4.9 milliliters in a US teaspoon. Multiply the number of teaspoons you need by 4.9 to determine the equivalent amount of milliliters. If you’re going from milliliters to teaspoons, the simplest way to convert is to divide by 4.9.
To convert teaspoons to milliliters, you need to multiply by 4.9.
Milliliters = teaspoons X 4.9.
To convert milliliters to teaspoons divide by 4.9.
Of course this is a lot of math for an ingredient conversion, so below is a quick chart for various ingredients to make cooking more simple.
