How many teaspoons are in a gram?
A gram of sugar equates to about a quarter of a flat teaspoon (0.24 teaspoons) and a gram of salt is about 0.17 teaspoons. The reason for this is that salt is denser than sugar.
When carrying out a conversion between grams and teaspoons, it is important to remember that the gram is a unit of weight and the teaspoon is a unit of volume. As an example, a teaspoon of flour weighs less than a teaspoon of milk.
