How much is 70 grams of sugar in cups?

Answered by Robert Dupre

To convert grams of sugar to cups, it’s important to note that the density of sugar can vary slightly depending on the type of sugar being used. In general, granulated sugar is denser than powdered sugar, so the volume will be slightly less for the same weight.

For 70 grams of granulated sugar, it is approximately 1/3 cup. This means that if you were to measure out 70 grams of granulated sugar using a kitchen scale, it would fill up about 1/3 of a standard measuring cup.

However, for powdered sugar, which is lighter and less dense, 70 grams would be closer to 1/2 cup. This is because powdered sugar takes up more volume for the same weight compared to granulated sugar.

It’s important to note that these conversions are approximate and can vary slightly depending on factors such as how tightly packed the sugar is in the cup. It’s always best to use a kitchen scale for precise measurements, especially in recipes where accuracy is important.

Personal experience: I remember once when I was baking a cake and the recipe called for 70 grams of sugar. I didn’t have a kitchen scale at the time, so I used a measuring cup and filled it up to approximately 1/3 of the cup. The cake turned out well and had the right amount of sweetness, so the conversion seemed to work fine in that instance.

70 grams of sugar is roughly equivalent to 1/3 cup of granulated sugar or 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. However, it’s always best to use a kitchen scale for accurate measurements in baking and cooking.
