How to Convert Ounces of Sugar to Teaspoons

To convert an ounce measurement to a teaspoon measurement, multiply the sugar by the conversion ratio. One ounce of sugar is equal to 6.803886 teaspoons, so use this simple formula to convert:

teaspoons = ounces × 6.803886

The sugar in teaspoons is equal to the ounces multiplied by 6.803886.

For example, here's how to convert 5 ounces to teaspoons using the formula above.
5 oz = (5 × 6.803886) = 34.019428 tsp

While experts usually suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight since it's more accurate,[1] some recipes call for ingredients by volume and many of us don't have a scale when we need one. Because the density of different types of sugar vary, it may not be obvious how to convert between a weight and volume measurements.

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

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.

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

Ounces

An ounce of sugar is 1/16 of a pound, and there are 28.3495 grams in one ounce. An ounce is a measure of sugar weight.

The ounce is a US customary and imperial unit of sugar. Ounces can be abbreviated as oz, for example 1 ounce can be written as 1 oz.

Teaspoons

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

The teaspoon is a US customary unit of sugar. 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.
