How to Convert Tablespoons of Flour to Kilograms

To convert a measurement in tablespoons to a measurement in kilograms, divide the flour by the following conversion ratio: 128 tablespoons/kilogram.

Since one kilogram of flour is equal to 128 tablespoons, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilograms = tablespoons ÷ 128

The flour in kilograms is equal to the flour in tablespoons divided by 128.

For example, here's how to convert 500 tablespoons to kilograms using the formula above.
kilograms = (500 tbsp ÷ 128) = 3.90625 kg

Experts often recommend measuring dry ingredients by weight for accuracy,[1] but some recipes use volume, and not all home cooks own a digital scale. Converting between weight and volume can be tricky because different types of flour vary in density.

The table below can help with the conversion and shows the approximate volume measurement for the weight of various types of flour.

Should You Measure Flour by Weight or Volume?

Most experts agree that dry ingredients like flour should be measured by weight rather than volume, especially in baking. The reason for this is that flours vary slightly in density, so a volume measurement will likely yield an incorrect amount of ingredients. Additionally, the amount that the flour is packed or compressed in the cup or tablespoon will alter the amount of ingredients being added.

For these reasons, a food scale, rather than measuring cups or spoons, is the preferred way to measure flour when cooking. For recipes that call for measurements in volume, professional bakers use a whisk to aerate flour that's been stored in a bag or canister before measuring since flour will settle when stored and weigh heavier even in the same-sized measuring cup.

What Is a Tablespoon?

A tablespoon of flour is equal to 3 teaspoons or 1/16 of a cup. A tablespoon is a measure of flour volume.

The tablespoon is a US customary unit of volume. Tablespoons can be abbreviated as tbsp, and are also sometimes abbreviated as T, Tbls, or Tb. For example, 1 tablespoon can be written as 1 tbsp, 1 T, 1 Tbls, or 1 Tb.

What Is a Kilogram?

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