How to Convert Quarts of Sugar to Kilograms

To convert a measurement in quarts to a measurement in kilograms, multiply the sugar by the following conversion ratio: 0.8 kilograms/quart.

Since one quart of sugar is equal to 0.8 kilograms, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilograms = quarts × 0.8

The sugar in kilograms is equal to the sugar in quarts multiplied by 0.8.

For example, here's how to convert 5 quarts to kilograms using the formula above.
kilograms = (5 qt × 0.8) = 4 kg

How Many Kilograms Are in a Quart of Sugar?

There are 0.8 kilograms in a quart of sugar, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 qt = 0.8 kg

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.

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

What Is a Quart?

A quart is a measure of sugar volume equal to 4 cups.

Quarts can be abbreviated as qt; for example, 1 quart can be written as 1 qt.

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.
