You finally found a good chocolate cake or chicken biryani recipe, but the ingredients are in metric measurements. What to do?
With this grams-to-cups calculator, recipes will be easier than ever to follow. You'll get the conversion for everyday kitchen ingredients from grams to cups.

## Cup Sizes Around the World

American recipes typically use the US customary cup, which is equal to: 236.588 mL, 16 US tablespoons, or 8 US fluid ounces. There's another US cup size—the US legal cup—used for nutrition labeling and measuring 240 mL.
Recipes from Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa seldom use cup measures. But should they, it would be safe to assume they are referring to a metric cup, which measures 250mL. Old Canadian recipes may be using the 227.3045 mL conventional Canadian cup.

## Converting Grams to Cups and Cups to Grams

You can convert any ingredient from grams to cups or cups to grams using the following formulas:
Weight = cups × cup size × density
Cups = weight / (cup size × density)
As seen in the above equations, we need to know the density of the ingredient in question and the cup size used in the recipe's country of origin to convert cups to grams.
Although our measurements are meant to be approximations, the end product will be close to the nutritional values given for each recipe. Another important factor is how tightly the ingredient is packed into the cup. Different pressures and temperatures cause the density of the substance to vary, so there will be a small variation in the final product.
*Use grams per cubic centimeter as the unit of density.
So understandably, converting cooking measurements can get confusing. This is where our handy grams-to-cups calculator comes in by automatically converting grams to US customary cups in these few steps:
• Choose the ingredient
• Enter the amount in grams
• Obtain the result
• ## How Many Grams in a Cup?

The weight of one cup varies depending on the ingredients it contains. For example, 1 US customary cup of water weighs precisely 236.588 grams, but the same cup weighs around 287 grams if holding salt and a mere 141.6 grams if containing wheat flour.
The table below shows the amount of grams per cup of popular kitchen ingredients:

Bear in mind the above are approximate measurements. Variables such as pressure, temperature, and how tightly one packs a product into the cup may cause the values to differ slightly.

## 100 Grams to Cups

The quantity of grams in a cup depends on the density of the ingredient you're measuring and what cup size you're using. For instance, 100 grams of water equals 0.42 standard US cups, while the same amount of sugar is 0.50 US cups.

## 250 Grams of Flour to Cups

250 grams equals 1 metric cup. The value may differ depending on the density of the ingredient you're looking to convert and the size of the cup. Here are some examples to illustrate this using the formula cups = weight / (cup size × density) and flour as the ingredient:
• 250 grams of flour is 1.67 metric cups, i.e., 250 / (250 × 0.6).
• 250 grams of flour is 1.77 US customary cups, i.e., 250 / 236 × 0.6).
• You can use our grams-to-cups calculator to convert measurements for common baking and cooking ingredients.

## How Many Grams Are 2.5 Cups of Flour?

Similar to converting cups to grams, converting grams to cups depends on the density of the ingredient and choice of measuring cup. For example, while there are 354 grams of flour in 2.5 US customary cups, 2.5 metric cups of flour measure 374 grams.
Refer to the section "cup sizes around the world" for more cup measurements used worldwide. Always check the origin country of the recipe you want to try and use the cup measure used in that region.
For super accurate measurements, it's best to use a kitchen scale other than converting grams to cups. The reason being conversion will require that you first work out the density of the ingredient you wish to convert. And this involves approximating, which can result in substantial discrepancies in quantities.
Our grams-to-cups converter is a good choice for easy conversions of popular kitchen ingredients like water, milk, flour, and sugar.
