How many teaspoons are in an ounce

Conversion of cups and spoons into grams and ounces for common baking ingredients

Published: & saved under conversion table.

Everyone loves cooking, but most people have neglected to accurately measure the ingredient specified in the recipes. Unfortunately, there isn't a single formula or conversion of the various ingredients from one type of measurement to another. The only option is to weigh the ingredient individually and then measure it with a cup or tablespoon, or vice versa.

The cup is a volume measurement tool. The problem arises when measuring dry ingredients like flour or sugar by volume, it results in a multitude of different weights. Although most people used the same method, spooning and leveling with a knife very carefully, the various weights were found to be quite significant.



Spooning a cup of flour out of a container or sachet is likely to get a weight of 142 g (5 ounces) to 113 g (3.9 ounces), by tapping or without tapping. That's a big difference. When making delicate cakes or soft, fluffy breads, a small difference in flour weight would have a big impact on the texture of the end result. Likewise, the difference in sugar has a big impact on the taste.

The most accurate way to measure is to use a kitchen scale. An electric kitchen scale works best and measures very accurately. Alternatively, some people use measuring cups and measuring spoons, but if you don't have any of the items listed, what are the alternatives? Use a cup, spoon, or teaspoon of Food Converter to do the calculations for you.
