## How to Convert Kilograms of Sugar to Grams

To convert a kilogram measurement to a gram measurement, multiply the sugar by the conversion ratio.

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

grams = kilograms × 1,000

The sugar in grams is equal to the kilograms multiplied by 1,000.

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

### How Many Grams are in a Kilogram of Sugar?

## Should I Measure Sugar by Weight or Volume?

Many experts are adamant that dry ingredients like sugar should be measured by weight instead of volume, especially when used for baking.

The reason is that the density of different sugars vary slightly, so volume measurements will likely yield an incorrect amount of ingredient. Additionally, when using a cup or tablespoon, the amount that the sugar is compressed and above or under the measurement line will alter the actual amount.

This is why most experts suggest using a food scale to measure sugar when cooking, rather than a cup, tablespoon, or other volume measuring devices.
