How to Convert Kilograms of Flour to Teaspoons

To convert a kilogram measurement to a teaspoon measurement, multiply the flour by the conversion ratio. One kilogram of flour is equal to 384.006144 teaspoons, so use this simple formula to convert:

teaspoons = kilograms × 384.006144

The flour in teaspoons is equal to the kilograms multiplied by 384.006144.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilograms to teaspoons using the formula above.
5 kg = (5 × 384.006144) = 1,920.03072 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.

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

Kilograms

One kilogram of flour is equal to 1,000 grams, and there are 2.20462 pounds in one kilogram. A kilogram is a measure of flour weight.

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.

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.
