View Full Version : Grams converted to cups?

I'm making Karen Knowler's Pizza and it calls for 400 grams of sprouted wheat. How many cups is that, do you think? After Googling it, it looks like the conversion depends on what you're measuring, and I can get a clear answer. :confused:

28 grams = 1/4 cup of dry wheat berries
That's all I know. I hope that helps.

Perfect - looks like 3 1/2 cups. Thanks!
Hey Sherah, a 250 gram bag of buckwheat makes about 8 cups of sprouted buckwheat for me. I don't know if that helps, but just in case...

You really can't use the measurement for dry wheat berries. It calls for 400g of sprouted wheat. That's the weight for the wheat and the water it soaks up when sprouting. 400g of wheat berries would make enough dough for 10 pizzas. You really have to sprout the stuff first and then weigh it. Just use an American scale and convert the 400g into oz. Should be about 14 oz.

You can always use Google.com instead of asking these kind of questions here, it's a little quicker

Yep, Jenna, except that only holds true for water. 1 liter of water weighs 1000 g or 1 kg. A cup of lead doesn't weigh the same as a cup of feathers.

I've never seen a recipe call for lead or feathers before lol. Just kidding.
But yes it depends on what you're measuring as most foods have different volumetric weights.
