Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Tsp to Gram conversions

I need to be able to break everything we have in our stock down to the smallest amount sold which is a gram. We have converted many things accurately but sometime the issue between ml and gram and tsp to gram is so small it's almost negligible. But for sake of accuracy is there a cut and dry way to get exact conversion between 3/4 tsp to grams. The same with ml to grams. A formula. Your page provides a lot of information but is slightly confusing. I appreciate your help!

There is no such formula as the conversion from a volume measure (tsp or ml) to mass measure (gram) depends on the substance.
For example, 1 ml of water is exactly 1 gram, but 1 ml of olive oil is 0.91 grams. And 1 ml of dried basil is only 0.11 grams.

You can't find a measuring teaspoon in your kitchen, so you've got to figure it out. But the fact is that these measurements are applicable only with US recipes. If 1 teaspoon is 5ML as per the metric equivalent, we can conclude that 3/4 tspn is approx 4 ml or so.
