How to Convert Kilograms of Sugar to Teaspoons

To convert a measurement in kilograms to a measurement in teaspoons, multiply the sugar by the following conversion ratio: 240 teaspoons/kilogram.

Since one kilogram of sugar is equal to 240 teaspoons, you can use this simple formula to convert:

teaspoons = kilograms × 240

The sugar in teaspoons is equal to the sugar in kilograms multiplied by 240.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilograms to teaspoons using the formula above.
teaspoons = (5 kg × 240) = 1,200 tsp

How Many Teaspoons Are in a Kilogram of Sugar?

There are 240 teaspoons in a kilogram of sugar, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 kg = 240 tsp

Experts often recommend measuring dry ingredients by weight for accuracy,[1] but some recipes use volume, and many home cooks don't own a digital scale. Converting between weight and volume can be tricky depending on sugar densities such as granulated, brown sugar, or powdered sugar.

This table shows the approximate volume measurement for various weights of various types of sugar to help with the conversion.

Should You 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 varies slightly, so volume measurements will likely yield an incorrect amount of ingredients. 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.

Experts recommend having a digital food scale on hand for measuring sugar rather than measuring spoons or cups for the most accurate results.

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

What Is a Kilogram?

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

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.

What Is a Teaspoon?

A teaspoon of sugar is equal to the volume of 1/3 of a tablespoon.

The teaspoon is a US customary unit of volume. 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.
