Tablespoons

A tablespoon of salt is equal to 3 teaspoons of salt or 1/16 of a cup.

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.

Grams

One gram of salt is equal to about 0.176 teaspoons of salt.

Salt is a combination of sodium and chloride, and one gram contains about 388mg of sodium. The American Heart Association recommends a daily sodium intake of less than 2,300mg, or 2.3 grams at a maximum, and ideally less than 1,500mg or 1.5 grams.[1]

The gram, or gramme, is an SI unit of salt volume in the metric system. Grams can be abbreviated as g; for example, 1 gram can be written as 1 g.
