There are 48 teaspoons of granulated sugar in a cup, which means that 1 pound of granulated sugar is equal to about 108 teaspoons of sugar. Likewise, a standard 100-packet box of granulated sugar packets would contain just over 2 cups of granulated sugar. It is important to remember, however, that the measurements provided are for granulated sugar. Confectioner's sugar and brown sugar are measured differently due to their differences in consistency from granulated sugar.

Teaspoons are a measurement of volume, and milligrams are a measurement of mass, so before one can calculate the teaspoons that are equivalent to 25 milligrams of a substance, one must know the density of that substance and divide 25 milligrams by the density in milligrams per teaspoon. Since milligrams per teaspoon is not a standard form of measurement for density, as milligrams are part of the metric system and teaspoons are part of the imperial system, some simple conversions must take place.
