Different ingredients can have different weights; therefore, the exact number of grams in a tablespoon depends on the weight of the ingredient. For example, a teaspoon of sugar is about 4 grams. Teaspoons and tablespoons can be converted easily. Three teaspoons equals 1 tablespoon, which means that 1 tablespoon equals about 4 x 3 grams of sugar, or 12 grams.
