Calculate grams of sugar
I read in a magazine how to calculate grams of sugar into teaspoons. Your divide a number into grams, and I was thinking it was 3 or 4?
Yes, you would divide the grams by 4 to get teaspoons of sugar. It is quite surprising to many people to discover that one 12-ounce can of pop has about 44 grams of sugar which is equal to 11 teaspoons!
