Have you been wondering about how to measure the size of something? Sometimes you want to measure the size of something with cups, but other times you want to use ounces—or grams.

If you're looking for a grams-to-teaspoons conversion chart, you won't find one here. Grams are a measure of mass, and teaspoons measure volume. The correct conversion depends on the density of the item you're measuring. Water has a density of 1 g/ml, so the conversion is 1 gram to 1 millileter, which is equivalent to 0.2 teaspoons. For other substances, the density will be different, and each teaspoon will weigh a different number of grams.

Not all measurements are created equal. Measuring 4 ounces of lime juice for a margarita recipe is much different than measuring 4 ounces of flour for chocolate chip cookies. Or perhaps there are those times we are wondering how many ounces is in a cup of coffee? This is a handy tool for questions like that – and moments when I’m making fresh pressed celery juice in a blender and I want to double or quadruple any liquids. Liquid and dry ingredients measure differently as dry ingredients typically measure by weight when recipes ask for them in ounces or grams. Liquid on the other hand measures by fluid ounces. There is a big difference between fluid ounces and dry ounces so always check your recipe. (Source: delightfulmomfood.com)

CAUTION: It is highly recommended to use designated measuring cups for dry or wet ingredients. After all, by using the right type of measuring cup will let you use the exact amount of ingredients for the recipe you’re making. In baking, in particular, never use a liquid measuring cup to measure flour. As the volume or weight measurement is different in both the cases, you will end up adding more or less if you use an incorrect measurement cup in your recipe that may eventually completely throw off a recipe.

Unfortunately, the answer isn’t very simple unless you’re a math genius who can calculate things in your mind in mere seconds. Though all the dry, wet and spoon calculations are correlated, there is a different formula for each one. While the dry measurements take the weight, liquid measurements take fluid volume into consideration. In this post, I am going to include ready-to-use formulas for cups to oz converter, so it becomes super handy for you. (Source: www.mydaintysoulcurry.com)

Conversion

If you want to convert between cups and dry ounces (oz), it's important to note that the cup is a unit of volume and the dry ounce (oz) is a unit of weight. This means that making a conversion requires an extra factor - a substance density figure. As a very crude example, a cup full of sugar will weigh less than a cup full of olive oil because olive oil is a denser substance.

I've given a list of ingredients to choose from. However, please be aware that these are approximations - different brands of ingredients will vary to a small extent. This means that the results you receive will be estimations. The ingredient densities were sourced from the Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations as well as other sources. A full list of these is available on the baking ingredient conversions page. (Source: www.thecalculatorsite.com)
