## How to Convert Kilograms of Sugar to Grams

To convert a measurement in kilograms to a measurement in grams, multiply the sugar by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 grams/kilogram.

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 sugar in kilograms multiplied by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilograms to grams using the formula above.

## 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.

## What is a Kilogram?

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

The kilogram, or kilogramme, is the SI base unit for weight and is also a multiple of the gram. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for thousands, or 103. Kilograms can be abbreviated as kg; for example, 1 kilogram can be written as 1 kg.
