SUGAR!!!

An Example: Grams and Teaspoons of Sugar

People often want to convert sugar from grams to teaspoons because grams are listed on the Nutrient Fact labels of processed foods, and it’s easier for those of us who are used to Imperial units to mentally picture a teaspoonful of sugar instead of a gram of sugar. One teaspoon of granulated white sugar is close to four grams. If you buy a bottle of cola with 44 grams of sugar, you would divide 44 by 4, which is equal to 11 teaspoons of sugar. That’s a lot of sugar – and a lot of calories with no additional nutritional value.
