Depending on the substance’s density, there are different conversions between teaspoons and grammes. In comparison to 1 teaspoon of salt, which is around 6 grammes, 1 teaspoon of sugar is approximately 4 grammes. Five grammes of water equal one teaspoon because one teaspoon is equivalent to 0.2 grammes of water.
Measurements in grammes and teaspoons are not equivalent. A material’s mass is measured in grammes. Teaspoons quantify volume, or the volume that a substance takes up in space.
Even while salt and sugar may have the same volume, they have very different densities and masses. The changes in mass can wreak havoc on a recipe when utilising a general conversion with diverse ingredients, especially on a bigger scale.
