How to Convert Grams of Flour to Teaspoons

To convert a gram measurement to a teaspoon measurement, multiply the flour by the conversion ratio. One gram of flour is equal to 0.384006 teaspoons, so use this simple formula to convert:

teaspoons = grams × 0.384006

The flour in teaspoons is equal to the grams multiplied by 0.384006.

For example, here's how to convert 5 grams to teaspoons using the formula above.
5 g = (5 × 0.384006) = 1.920031 tsp

While most experts suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight for improved precision,[1] not all recipes call for ingredients by weight and when they do we might not all have a scale handy. Because flours vary in density, it might not be immediately clear how to convert between a weight and volume measurement.

The table below can help with the conversion, and shows the approximate volume measurement for various weights of flour, by type.

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.

Grams and teaspoons are both units used to measure flour. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Grams

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 flour in the metric system. Grams can be abbreviated as g, for example 1 gram can be written as 1 g.

Teaspoons

A teaspoon of flour is equal to 1/3 of a tablespoon. A teaspoon is a measure of flour volume.

The teaspoon is a US customary unit of flour. Teaspoons can be abbreviated as tsp, and are also sometimes abbreviated as t, ts, or tspn. For example, 1 teaspoon can be written as 1 tsp, 1 t, 1 ts, or 1 tspn.
