How to convert Grams to Tablespoon and Tablespoon to Grams using the tool?

Conversion Table Icon

Tablespoon is a unit of volume mostly used in medication and recipes. Gram is a unit of mass.

Tablespoon and Grams are related through density.

To convert between tbsp and gram for any item using this tool, follow the steps given below:

  • Step 1: Select the item (liquid or solid) which has to be converted from the dropdown labelled as 'Select Fluid / Item'. The Default selected item is water.
  • Step 2: Enter the value of tbsp in the text field under Tablespoon.
  • Step 3: The gram value of the selected item is automatically shown in the gram text field for the selected item.
    For eg, if you enter 1 tbsp and select Water, then the weight in grams is 14.79 grams.
  • Step 4: If you have the weight and want to know the equivalent tbsp value, then enter the weight in the gram field and view the number of tablespoons for the same item.
  • Step 5: You can repeat the same procedure to find tbsp-gram value of other items

Formula for Tablespoon to Gram - Gram to Tablespoon

How much is 1 Tablespoon in Grams (tbsp to g)

To find the weight in grams of an item, you need the density of the item.

Multiply the no of tablespoons with 14.786 to get the ml value and multiply that with density of the item (gms/ml)

Weight in Grams = No of Tablespoons x 14.786 x Density of the item


For example to find the weight of 1 tbsp of water in grams,
1 tbsp of water in grams = 1 tbsp * 1 gm/cc * 14.786 cc = 14.786 gms


To find the weight of 1 tbsp of honey in grams,
1 tbsp of honey in gms = 1 tbsp * 1.36 gm/cc * 14.786 = 15.68 gms


How many Tablespoons in a Gram (g to tbsp)

To convert from grams to tablespoon, multiply the no of grams by density and 14.786

No of Tablespoons = No of Grams / (density in gms/cc x 14.786)


For example, 30 grams of water in tbsp is equal to
30 g of water to tbsp = 30/(1 * 14.786) is approx equal to 2 tablespoons.


And 25 grams of Milk to tbsp using density of milk as 1.25 will be:
25 g of milk to tbsp = 25 grams/(1.25* 14.786)= 1.35 tbsp


Note: 14.786 is the conversion factor from density in gms/cc to gms/tbsp

What is a Gram?

Gram Icon
  • A Gram is a SI Unit of Mass and widely used in most countries except US.
  • 1 Gram is 1/1000th of a Kilogram.
  • A Gram is used to represent weight of small items such as vegetables, food items dry and wet, objects like paper, pencil, bottles, medicine doses.
  • The unit of a gram is 'gm' or 'g'.
  • If density of any substance is 1, then 1 tablespoon of it weighs under 15 grams and has a volume of 15 milliliters .

What is a Tablespoon?

Tablespoon Icon
  • A tablespoon is a common unit of volume measurement.
  • Though it is not part of the metric or SI unit of measurement, it is a very popular measure across the world.
  • A tablespoon is equal to 1/16 th of a cup and 1/2 of an ounce and equal to 14.87 milliliters
  • Tablespoons are used mainly in measuring ingredients of a recipe in cooking and baking and in medicine doses.
  • Tablespoon unit is 'tbsp' or 'T'

How is Gram related to Tablespoon?

  • They are not related directly. A gram is a unit of mass and tablespoon is a unit of volume. There is no direct conversion between them.
  • However, they are linked together through density which is a measure of how closely packed an object is from within
  • Different ingredients have different densities, so the same number of grams of different ingredients will have different volumes. For example, 1 gram of flour is about 1 tablespoon, but 1 gram of baking powder is about 1/2 teaspoon. This is because flour is less dense than baking powder.
  • The moisture content of an ingredient can also affect its volume. For example, 1 gram of dry sugar is about 1 tablespoon, but 1 gram of wet sugar is about 2 tablespoons. This is because the water in the wet sugar takes up space.
  • Here are some examples of conversion factors for common ingredients:
  • Flour: 1 gram per tablespoon
  • Baking powder: 1 gram per 2 teaspoons
  • Sugar: 1 gram per tablespoon
  • Baking soda: 1 gram per 2 teaspoons
  • Butter: 1 gram per 1/2 teaspoon
  • Oil: 1 gram per 1/2 teaspoon
  • Water: 1 gram per 1/2 teaspoon

FAQ on Grams to Tablespoons Conversion

FAQ icon

  • Since density of items is in gms/ml, we need to know the ml value for conversion.
    1 standard US cup is 236.59 ml which is fixed.
    We also know that a cup is equal to 16 tablespoons.
    Therefore, a tablespoon is equal to 236.59/16 = 14.78 ml.

  • Tablespoon and Grams are different units and not directly related.
    Tablespoon measures Volume which is a measure of the amount of space an item occupies.
    Grams measures Mass which is the amount of matter contained in an item.
    Density is a measure of compactness of an item which is equal to Mass / Volume.
    To find Mass from Volume or Volume from Mass, we have to multiply or divide by Density of that substance.

  • No of Teaspoons = No of Grams / (Density in gms/cc * 4.93)
    1 gm of water = 0.2 tsp

  • 1 teaspoon is 14.786/3 = 4.93 ml
    Weight in Grams = No of Teaspoons x 4.93 x Density of the item
    1 tsp of water = 4.93 gms , where density of water is 1
    1 tsp of sugar = 3.1 gms, where density of sugar is 0.85

  • Spoons come in various shapes and sizes.
    A tablespoon is large and typically used for serving food.
    The smallest of the spoons will be the teaspoon. A tablespoon will be 3 times larger than the teaspoon.
    1 tablespoon measure will be equal to 15 ml or 0.5 oz.

  • Multiply the no of grams by the given density and 14.786
    The result is the tablespoon value for that items.
    For eg, for 50 grams of sugar, the no of tablespoons can be calculated as follows:
    No of tablespoons = 50 * 14.786 * 0.85 (density of sugar) = 4 tbsp.
