Re: grams to 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.

Re: grams to cups

Granulated sugar is about 190 grams per cup.

26 grams / 190 grams/cup = 0.137 cups

That is about 2 tablespoons of sugar.

Re: grams to cups

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
