I need to convert grams to cups. I know there is no conversion claculator yet for this. If I need 250 grams of ground almonds for my recipe, how many cups would this be?

Robert Fogt
05-14-2006, 04:53 PM
According to the rec.cooking.faq, ground almonds have a density of 85 grams/cup

250 grams / 85 grams/cup = 2.94 cups

Just use 3 cups.

How many cups would 30grams equal?

Unregistered
07-18-2006, 06:12 PM
im pretty sure that 30g would equal about .3529 cups.

85g = 30g
1 c = x

then cross multiply which would be 30=85x,
divide each side by 85, and x=.3529 :)

We should just conclude that the US "cup-standard" is a bit retarded and should be replaced with the metric standard.

Robert Fogt
09-16-2006, 12:18 PM
That wont help. Converting US cups to metric milliliter is very simple but wont solve the problem.

The US uses volume for cooking measurements, UK uses weight. Using a metric cup (or milliliters) instead of traditional cup wont help convert things to grams.

Certainly not retarded either. While many countries may consider a scale a common item for the kitchen, it is not common everywhere. Measuring cups are smaller, cheaper, and easier to use than a scale.

Other problems are that the ingredients themselves differ. UK flour is a different density then US flour, for example. If you need 100 grams of flour for a UK recipe it wont come out as well in the US if you use 100 grams.

Robert Fogt

Granulated sugar is 190 grams/cup.
300 grams / 190 grams/cup = 1.6 cups, slightly over 1 and 1/2 cups.

Butter is 230 grams/cup.
200 grams / 230 grams/cup = 0.9 cups, about 1 cup.

egg noodle pasta is 90 grams/cup.
250 grams / 90 grams/cup = 2.78 cups, about 2 and 3/4 cups.

macaronni pasta is 115 grams/cup.
250 grams / 115 grams/cup = 2.2 cups, about 2 and 1/4 cups.

All I can help with is granulated sugar which is 190 grams per cup, and olive oil which is also 190 grams/cup.

The rest of those oils appear to be speciality oils which I could find no data for. You may need to purchase a kitchen scale to do it.

I agree with the administrators general idea in it not helping for the U.S. to switch to metric as a general premise in that not everyone uses a scale and that flour weights are different in different countires but as an American living in Australia for 2 1/2 years and graduating recently from Cordon Bleu Culinary School after a mid life change from a high end consulting firm and being almost 41 years old with over 600 cookery books from all over the world here are my 2 cents. 1. Flours will weight differently from Alabama, to Texas, to NYC to Kentucky to London to Sydney, based on a number of variables not just the flour, storage conditions, type of flour, how long it's been milled, how it has been stored, how much moisture it has absorbed from the air, etc. but measuring by weight, as most bakers, patisseries, and chefs do provides the most consistent standard for cooking. Using volumetric measures are inconsistent in that not every measures the same, not everyone levels off, volumetric items do differ (even Tbsp are differnt in Oz versus U.S. at 1 Tbsp being 20 ml verus 15 mls) but as long as you balance and zero your scale, you will get a consistent standard that you will not find with cups/volume. Using Milliliter volumes is also a more consistent measuring system as well. Having grown up and used the 'cup' system most of my life, and having struggled to learn the metric system and thinking it a hassle to get out my scales, or weight out ingredients rather than just grabbing a measuring cup, I now hate using measuring cups for dry ingredients. The rest of the world is *mostly* (sic) on the metric system and the U.S. is far behind, even when u.s. cookery books use ounces as many do in the states, it still is not as good as metric.

In response to others, 4 ounces of butter is always 113 grams. I'd encourage you to buy a scale and work on your conversions. I searched what the internet sources stated that 1 cup of flour was in grams and then I did my own test and measured out 1 cup of flour 10 times on a scale. The best way to understand is to do it yourself, after research. I agree that converting something like volumetric like milk to grams makes little sense and is confusing as well. The only liquid item you can exchange between liters and grams is water, where 250 ml of water will equal 250 grams due to the specific gravity of water.

I agree that he U.S. is behind and we should convert to the metric system.

butter = 230 grams/cup
100 grams is slightly less than 1/2 cup. Use stick butter and read the package. 100 grams is just about 1 stick.

powdered sugar is 130 grams/cup.
100 grams is about 4/5 of a cup.

U.S. all purpose flour is 100 grams/cup
100 grams = 1 cup

According to the rec.cooking.faq:

butter - 230 grams/cup
flour, US all purpose, 100 grams/cup
cornstarch - 150 grams/cup
sugar, powdered - 130 grams/cup

You calculate like this:
165 grams butter / 230 grams/cup = 0.7 cups
165 grams flour / 100 grams/cup = 1.65 cups
100 grams cornstarch / 150 grams/cup = 2/3 cups
90 grams powdered sugar / 130 grams/cup = 0.7 cups

Try using Robie Metric Units.

1 Robie spoon = 10 grams = 10ml = 10cc = 1 Robie Unit. (Based on water)

3 Robie spoons = 30grams = 30ml = 30cc = 1 Robie Metric Ounce.

1 Robie shot = 50grams = 50ml = 50cc = 1 Robie Metric Shot.

8oz = 1 cup = 250grams = 250ml = 250cc = 1 Robie Metric Cup = 25 Robies.

2 cups = 1 pint = 500grams = 500ml = 500cc = 50 Robies = 1 Robie Metric lb.

16oz = 1lb = 500grams = 500ml = 500cc = 50 Robies = 1 Robie Metric lb.

2 pints = 1 quart = 1 liter = 1000grams = 1000ml = 1000cc = 100 Robies

4 quarts = 1 gallon = 4000grams = 4000ml = 4000 cc = 400 Robies

Let me know if this helps.

If you want to convert grams into cups go to google and type convert grams to ounces and then go to convert grams into OUNCES (Notice: 2ounces is equal to 1/4 cups, 4ounces is equal to 1/2 cups, 6ounces is equal to 3/4 cups and 8ounces is equal to one cup) so at the top where it says quantity type in the gram measurment and then put from grams to ounces, press convert. It will give you a decimal number. Round it.

For Example:
230 grams of sugar = 8.113 011 248 ounce
Therefore, we round it to eight, which would be one cup of sugar.

So use just a little less than a cup.
Since you are planning on using bacon grease the less you use the better.
See if you can get by with 3/4 of a cup and your dish probably will turn out ok. I know that it does give a great flavor.

Wikipedia states in its article on Cup (unit):

Conversion to and from metric recipes:

In metric regions, cooking recipes normally state any liquid volumes larger than a few tablespoons in millilitres, the scale found on most measuring cups worldwide. Non-liquid ingredients are normally weighed in grams instead, using a kitchen scale, rather than measured in cups. Some recipes in Europe use the decilitre (1 dL = 100 mL) as a cup-like measure. For example, where an American customary recipe might specify "1 cup of sugar and 2 cups of milk", a metric recipe might specify "200 g sugar and 500 mL of milk" (or ½ litre or 5 decilitres). Conversion between the two measures must take into account the density of the ingredients (granulated sugar, 0.8 g/mL; wheat flour, 0.5–0.6 g/mL; table salt, 1.2 g/mL[1]).

Hey,can someone tell me how do I convert 200gms of Vermicilli to number of cups?Thanks.....but its urgent!!

If you're looking at a recipe that calls for 200g UNCOOKED vermicelli, look on your vermicelli box which will give you a weight, probably in metric. Just use an amount that seems properly proportional to the total amount in the box ... for instance, if the box is new and holds a total of 453 grams vermicelli, use a little less than half of the contents of the box in your recipe.

If, on the other hand, you're using a recipe that calls for X cups COOKED vermicelli and you're trying to figure out how many grams of vermicelli to cook to get the X cups, it would be dangerous for me to try to help you off the cuff. Maybe the box, again, though, will give you some idea -- look at the number of servings/nutritional information on the box and see if it gives you some clues.

How much is 200 grams of sugar?
Another user has just posted alink to a site that gives denisties for lots of powder substances.

http://www.powderandbulk.com/resources/bulk_density/material_bulk_density_chart_s.htm
Suggests that the density of granulated sugar is 0.70g/cm³, so 200g of sugar is about 1 metric cup + 2 metric tablespoons.

That was me. It IS a pretty good source, but like most compilations, sometimes its values conflict with other sources.

For foodstuffs, I think I prefer the USDA Nutritional Database:
http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/

It has a clunky search engine on the front end. Once you find what you want, you can choose the amount (in several units) that you want an analysis for and get a complete nutritional analysis. Data is supplied by US food producers, so it is most accurate for foods available in the US.

For density, (hardly its main use) submit an amount in cups, tablespoons, etc, and it reports a weight in grams as part of the analysis. Per it, white sugar is 200 g/cup (a US cup, 236.6 mL, although 240 mL is common as a "rounded" value)

A second approach is to look at the box or package of sugar. Most in addition to nutrition facts panel give you either a cups/pound or cups/package figure. 1 lb = 453.6 g, or total package weight is reported in both Customary and metric (by law) so conversion is pretty easy. For any bulk powder, grind affects density, and the second method will include any effects of that producer's grind and be the most accurate.

Oh Look! Robert's got them here! Go to the "cooking" section on the home page of this site:

http://www.onlineconversion.com/weight_volume_cooking.htm

This gives 200g granulated sugar as just over 1 US cup.

"ca" is abbreviation for "circa" meaning about, around, approximately. You may need a little more or less to get the right consistency of batter.

250 grams / 85 grams/cup = 2.94 cups

Just use 3 cups.

250 gram = 8.818 490 487 4 ounce

Hello, I too need some assistance. If you may be able to help, would you tell me how many cups is 300g of diced chicken?

Sandra

I couldn't find a conversion for chicken to grams per cup but you might be able to figure it out by using 300 gram = 10.6 ounce
I believe chicken weights less when it's cooked so as a guess I would buy a package that has at least 12.5 ounces or a little bit more, and that would be boneless. If you are making a dish like a casserole allow a little more if your family likes things more meaty.

If there is nothing in the cup, there are no grams. If you fill it with feathers, water, lead, you will get three different answers. It depends on the substance; you need to know the density (ratio of mass to volume).

The USDA database uses a common "density" of 27.8 g per 1 fl. oz. for all distilled spirits between 80 - 100 proof.
So 90 g = 3.24 fl oz (a little under 1/2 cup).

The USDA database gives about 14 g/tablespoon, so
90 g is about 6.5 Tablespoons, 30 g is just over 2 Tablespoons.

I think the USDA figure might be a little high. A stick of butter is 1/4 lb, 113 g. Looking at the markings, the stick is slightly longer than the 8 tablespoon scale on the waxed paper, maybe 8.5 Tablespoons. So I get 13.3 g/tablespoon.

That depends on the substance. Every substance will be different. Post the substance and I may be of help.

325 g of feathers will fill a lot more cups than 325 g of lead.

One is mass and one is volume. Any conversion is only good for one substance and depends on the density, which you have to measure or look up.

Using the 13.3 g/Tablespoon figure I suggest above, it is 30 Tablespoons or 15 fl oz (almost two cups)

Hi. I recently stumbled across this online conversion site which is awesome. I will definitely be using this site frequently. Being a chef and a scientist (two different careers; not a 'food scientist'), this thread caught my attention. I have to say, the moderators/administrators/members of this site are incredibly helpful and also incredibly patient (i.e., answering the same questions repeatedly).

I know that this isn't a question or an answer to someones query, but I had to write to commend the moderators/administrators/members of this site for patiently and intelligently answering random questions.

But I will add my '2-cents' (an American idiom for offering an opinion) to questions/answers that appeared much earlier in this thread regarding conversions of butter. While approximate butter amounts for 'general' cooking can easily be converted from weights to volumes (when fat content isn't critical), sometimes when using butter in pastries (or particularly recipes that contain baking powder/soda, or yeast, or flour(s) comprised of wheat, rye, or barley that will contain various amounts of gluten), the fat content of butter is very important. Since butter is typically made from churned cow's cream it will be variable in fat content. Butter is primarily made up of fat, water, and milk solids (in decreasing amounts by volume AND weight, respectively). Depending on the ratio of these three main ingredients, the density of butter will vary, and therefore the conversions will vary. As a 'general-rule-of-thumb', European butter has a higher fat content than American butter. Indian butter (which is usually called "ghee") is 'clarified butter' meaning that the milk solids and water have been removed (as much as possible), thus having 'pure butter-fat' remaining. Butter fat floats on water, so the higher the fat content of butter is, the less dense it is 'cup-for-cup'.

Clarified butter or "ghee" is not typically used 'within' pastry recipes although it might be used to brush the outside of items before or after baking. Generally speaking, when using butter 'in' pastries, higher fat content or 'European-style' butter is preferred.

My apologies for the length of this 'opinion'. I didn't plan on writing a condensed dissertation on butter, but I thought this info might be of interest to some. And while any butter can be used in any recipe and likely turn out a decent product, I wanted to provide some information to all of the foodies that frequent this thread in the hopes of making cooks a little more aware of their "tools-of-the-trade". And more importantly, to let everyone know that cooking shouldn't be scary. For the most part, a little more or less of different ingredients will not ruin a recipe, unless the amounts are 'drastic'.

They are both units of volume so the answer is not specific to the substance.

236.6 mL = 1 cup, but most people round to 240 mL as close enough.
