# Grams to Cups Calculator

+
```Whenever you open a recipe book, you’re carrying out a form of mathematics. You make calculations and conversions, with the result being a perfect cake. Sometimes, you may need to convert grams to cups. In other situations, you might want to know how many grams are in a cup. Whatever your needs, this calculator can help.

This tool helps you convert grams to cups with no effort at all. Read on, and you may end up with that perfect batch of cookies after all.```

### Converting Grams to Cups and Cups to Grams

```Some recipes call for grams, and you only have cups. Others call for cups when you have grams. If you use these formulas, you can solve the problem.

Weight = cups x the cup size x the density
Cups = the weight / (the cup size x the density)

With these formulas, you need to know more than the grams. The density is critical too. Depending on the country of origin, the cup size might even differ!```

### What Are the Different Cup Sizes?

```The cup size you use for a recipe depends on its origins. If it comes from the United States, so does the cup size. A US cup is 239.59 milliliters. A ‘legal cup’ in the US for nutrition labels is 240 milliliters.

In other countries, a cup measurement is for liquids. You measure non-liquid ingredients in grams. In recipes before 1970, you would use an imperial cup. A metric cup of 250 milliliters is standard in the UK, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada.

If you use our grams to cup calculator, we measure in US customary, US legal, and metric cups.```

### How Many Grams Are in My Cup?

```There are significant differences in cup measurements and weight. It varies from one product to the next, depending on density. One standard US cup of water is 236.59 grams, and one cup of salt is 287 grams. The same amount fits into one area, but its weight differs.

### Grams to Cups Calculator with Different Ingredients

`In this calculator, you get to work with the most common ingredients. All you need to do is enter the advanced mode to find them. If you still don’t find what you’re looking for, a density database can help. Otherwise, you may find it easier to use a different recipe, or wing it and hope for the best (usually a very bad idea if you’re baking).`
