## How to Convert Grams of Flour to Kilograms

To convert a measurement in grams to a measurement in kilograms, divide the flour by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 grams/kilogram.

Since one kilogram of flour is equal to 1,000 grams, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilograms = grams ÷ 1,000

The flour in kilograms is equal to the flour in grams divided by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 grams to kilograms using the formula above.
kilograms = (5,000 g ÷ 1,000) = 5 kg

## Should I Measure Flour by Weight or Volume?

Most experts agree that dry ingredients like flour should be measured by weight rather than volume, especially in baking. The reason for this is that flours vary slightly in density, so a volume measurement will likely yield an incorrect amount of ingredient. Additionally, the amount that the flour is packed or compressed in the cup or tablespoon will alter the amount of ingredient being added.

For these reasons, a food scale is the preferred way to measure flour when cooking, rather than a cup or tablespoon.

## What Is a Gram?

One gram is 1/1000 of a kilogram. One gram of flour is equal to roughly 0.035274 ounces or 0.00220462 pounds. A gram is a measure of flour weight.

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