As I explained previously, the exact number of grams of sugar in a teaspoon depends on several factors, including:

  • Sugar type: Different sugars have varying densities due to factors like crystal size, air pockets, and moisture content.
  • Packing: How tightly the sugar is packed into the teaspoon can significantly affect the weight.

Therefore, it's impossible to provide a single, universally accurate answer. Here's what you can do:

1. Consult your recipe or instructions:

  • If you're following a recipe, it will likely specify the type of sugar and the measurement (grams, teaspoons, etc.) they recommend. Always adhere to the recipe's specific instructions for best results.

2. Use a measuring scale for precise measurement:

  • This eliminates any variability in packing and ensures you're using the correct type of sugar.

3. If you only have teaspoons and the recipe doesn't specify the sugar type:

  • Use the following estimates with caution:
    • Granulated sugar (most common in baking/cooking): Consider around 4.2 grams per level teaspoon.
    • Brown sugar: Consider around 5 grams per level teaspoon.

Remember: Slight variations in the amount of sugar generally won't significantly impact the final outcome of most recipes. However, if you require high precision (e.g., baking delicate pastries), a measuring scale is always the best option.
