**Use this grams to cups conversion calculator to convert measurements from the metric system (grams) to the imperial system (cups). **

This conversion is particularly **valuable in cooking and baking**, where recipes from different parts of the world may use varying units of measurement.

## Grams to Cups Converter

Ingredient | Grams | Cups | Notes |
---|---|---|---|

All-purpose flour | 250 g | 2 cups | Commonly used amount in bread recipes |

Granulated sugar | 200 g | 1 cup | Standard conversion for sugar |

Brown sugar | 220 g | 1 cup | Packed brown sugar |

Butter | 113 g | 0.5 cup | Half a cup, common in baking recipes |

Water | 236 g | 1 cup | Standard conversion for water |

Milk | 244 g | 1 cup | Slightly heavier than water |

Honey | 340 g | 1 cup | Much denser than water |

Olive oil | 216 g | 1 cup | Lighter than water |

Salt | 292 g | 1 cup | Very dense compared to other ingredients |

Rice (uncooked) | 180 g | 1 cup | Can vary slightly by rice type |

Rolled oats | 90 g | 1 cup | Very light and fluffy |

Chocolate chips | 170 g | 1 cup | For baking or snacking |

Shredded cheese | 113 g | 1 cup | Can vary based on cheese type |

Ground coffee | 85 g | 1 cup | For brewing a pot of coffee |

Powdered sugar | 125 g | 1 cup | Also known as confectioner’s sugar |

**Flour and Sugar**: These are staple baking ingredients. Notice how 1 cup of flour weighs less than 1 cup of sugar, which is important for recipe accuracy.**Liquids**: Water and milk have similar weights per cup, while honey is much heavier, and olive oil is slightly lighter.**Butter**: The 113g to 0.5 cup conversion is very common in recipes and is equivalent to one standard stick of butter in many countries.**Salt**: It’s much denser than most other ingredients, which is why a little goes a long way in recipes.**Rice and Oats**: These can vary somewhat based on the specific type (e.g., long-grain vs. short-grain rice, or old-fashioned vs. quick oats).**Chocolate chips and Shredded cheese**: These are examples of ingredients where the cup measurement can be less precise due to air gaps between pieces.**Coffee**: Ground coffee is quite light, which is why volume measurements are common for home brewing.**Powdered sugar**: It’s lighter than granulated sugar due to its fine texture and added cornstarch.

## Grams to Cups Converter Formula

The **basic principle** behind the conversion is:

```
Cups = Grams / (Density of the ingredient × 236.588)
```

Here, 236.588 is the number of **grams **in a **cup of water**, which is often used as a reference point.

For **specific ingredients**, we can use more **precise formulas**. Here are a few examples:

**All-purpose flour**:`Cups = Grams / 125`

**Granulated sugar**:`Cups = Grams / 200`

**Brown sugar**(packed):`Cups = Grams / 220`

**Butter**:`Cups = Grams / 227`

It’s important to note that these conversions are **approximations**, as factors like **humidity**, **temperature**, and how the ingredient is packed can affect its density.

For **liquids**, the conversion is more consistent:

```
Cups = Grams / 236.588
```

This formula works for **water** and most **water-based liquids**. For liquids with significantly different densities (like **honey** or **oil**), specific conversion factors should be used.
