Convert Kilograms of Flour to Quarts
Enter the amount of flour in kilograms below to get the value converted to quarts.
How to Convert Kilograms of Flour to Quarts
To convert a kilogram measurement to a quart measurement, multiply the flour by the conversion ratio.
Since one kilogram of flour is equal to 2 quarts, you can use this simple formula to convert:
The flour in quarts is equal to the kilograms multiplied by 2.
How Many Quarts Are in a Kilogram of Flour?
There are 2 quarts in a kilogram of flour, which is why we use this value in the formula above.
1 kg = 2 qt
While most experts suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight for improved precision, 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.
Kilograms and quarts are both units used to measure flour. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
The kilogram, or kilogramme, is the SI base unit for flour and is also a multiple of the gram. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilograms can be abbreviated as kg; for example, 1 kilogram can be written as 1 kg.
A quart is a measure of flour volume equal to 4 cups.
Quarts can be abbreviated as qt; for example, 1 quart can be written as 1 qt.
