The number of cups equaling 60 grammes varies depending on what is being measured. For instance, 1/2 cup of wheat corresponds to 60 grammes, but 1/2 cup of brown sugar corresponds to 100 grammes.
Similarly, approximately 1/3 cup of butter or margarine is 75 grammes. 60 grammes is equal to 3/4 cup of slivered almonds or coconut flakes, whereas 55 grammes is equal to 1/4 cup of granulated sugar.
A paperclip, which weighs approximately one gramme, can be used to visualise the gram’s low weight. Instead of writing down the words gramme or grammes, the shorthand “g” is typically utilised.
