How to Convert Grams to Tablespoons

Scales are used to measure weight

To convert a gram measurement to a tablespoon measurement, divide the weight by 14.786765 times the density of the ingredient or material.

You can use this simple formula to convert:

tablespoons = grams14.786765 × ingredient density

Thus, the weight in tablespoons is equal to the grams divided by 14.786765 times the density of the ingredient or material.

For example, here's how to convert 5 grams to tablespoons for an ingredient with a density of 0.7 g/mL.
5 g = 514.786765 × 0.7 = 0.483057467143 tbsp

Grams and tablespoons are both commonly used to measure cooking ingredients.

For cooking applications, most chefs suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight rather than volume to improve accuracy in the measurements.[1] The density of dry ingredients can vary for a variety of reasons, such as compaction.

The best way to ensure an accurate conversion is to use a scale. When a scale is not available, a calculator like the one above is a good way to estimate the weight to volume conversion.

For cooking and baking ingredients, you can get more specific results using our butter, flour, sugar conversion calculators.

Grams

A gram is the mass/weight equal to 1/1,000 of a kilogram and is roughly equivalent to the mass of one cubic centimeter of water.

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.

Tablespoons

The tablespoon is a unit of volume equal to three teaspoons or ½ fluid ounce.[2] One tablespoon is equal to just under 14.8 milliliters, but in nutrition labeling, one tablespoon is equal to 15 milliliters.[3]

The tablespoon is a US customary unit of volume. Tablespoons can be abbreviated as tbsp, and are also sometimes abbreviated as T, Tbls, or Tb. For example, 1 tablespoon can be written as 1 tbsp, 1 T, 1 Tbls, or 1 Tb.
