Did you find an answer to your question? I am trying to watch my sodium intake and unfortunately food labels have everything converted into MGs. That doesnt help when my wife wants to make me some good home cooking and I have to guage the salt! Let me know if you found anything out. Thx :)

It will totally depend upon the size of the spoon you use in your home.

Did you say this answer with a straight face???


Dude, measuring spoons. Every measuring spoon set used in cooking is universal.

If you have an answer like that, keep it to yourself and take a few more classes.

The milligram is a measure of weight or mass, whereas the tablespoon is a measure of volume.

You can convert milligrams to tablespoons, but only for a particular substance, material, food item, etc...

Also, please note that a metric tablespoon differs in volume from a tablespoon used in the US.

For example, 1 US tablespoon of table salt weighs 18.25 grams, and 1 metric tablespoon of that same table salt weighs 18.51 grams.

Note: I've used this volume to weight calculator for table salt to calculate how much a tablespoon of table salt weighs:
