Dashes

A dash is a small cooking unit that is usually used to measure seasonings and spices, including salt. One dash is vague measurement that is roughly equal to 1/8 of a teaspoon or 2 pinches.

Grams

One gram of salt is equal to about 0.176 teaspoons of salt.

Salt is a combination of sodium and chloride, and one gram contains about 388mg of sodium. The American Heart Association recommends a daily sodium intake of less than 2,300mg, or 2.3 grams at a maximum, and ideally less than 1,500mg or 1.5 grams.[1]

The gram, or gramme, is an SI unit of salt volume in the metric system. Grams can be abbreviated as g; for example, 1 gram can be written as 1 g.
