How Many Teaspoons Are in a Gram?

When carrying out a conversion between grams and teaspoons, it is important to remember that the gram is a unit of weight and the teaspoon is a unit of volume. As an example, a teaspoon of flour weighs less than a teaspoon of milk. It is for this reason that a list of ingredients is included with the converter.

For conversions involving teaspoons, please note that figures are given for level teaspoons and not heaped teaspoons. Should you wish, we have an alternative converter for teaspoons to grams.

Please be aware that the list of ingredient options included in the converter (and below) are approximations, meaning the result you receive will be an estimate. The ingredient densities were sourced from the Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations as well as other information sources. A full list of these is available on the baking ingredient conversions page.
