How to Convert Pounds to Teaspoons

To convert a pound measurement to a teaspoon measurement, divide the weight multiplied by 92.026696 by the density of the ingredient or material.

You can use this simple formula to convert:

teaspoons = pounds × 92.026696 / ingredient density

Thus, the weight in teaspoons is equal to the pounds times 92.026696, divided by the density of the ingredient or material.

For example, here's how to convert 5 pounds to teaspoons for an ingredient with a density of 0.7 g/mL.
5 lb = 5 × 92.026696 / 0.7 = 657.333544 tsp

Pounds and teaspoons are both commonly used to measure cooking ingredients.

For cooking applications, most chefs suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight rather than volume to improve accuracy in the measurements.[1] The density of dry ingredients can vary for a variety of reasons, such as compaction.

The best way to ensure an accurate conversion is to use a scale. When a scale is not available, a calculator like the one above is a good way to estimate the weight to volume conversion.

For cooking and baking ingredients, you can get more specific results using our butter, flour, sugar conversion calculators.

Pounds

Pounds are a widely used unit of mass/weight in the United States. The National Bureau of Standards approved the international definition of the pound for use in the United States in 1959 after an agreement between six nations referred to as the International Yard and Pound Agreement.[2]

One pound is equal to 16 ounces, or 0.45359237 kilograms. In the avoirdupois or apothecaries' systems, one pound is equal to 7,000 grains.[3]

The pound is a US customary and imperial unit of weight. A pound is sometimes also referred to as a common ounce. Pounds can be abbreviated as lb, and are also sometimes abbreviated as lbs, lbm, or #. For example, 1 pound can be written as 1 lb, 1 lbs, 1 lbm, or 1 #.

Teaspoons

The teaspoon is a unit of volume equal to one-third of a tablespoon.[4] One teaspoon is equal to around 4.9 milliliters, but in nutrition labeling, one teaspoon is equal to exactly 5 milliliters.[5]

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.
