Sugar packets are often offered in restaurants instead of the traditional sugar bowl. Sugar packets offer portion control, better sanitation, and less spills compared to the sugar bowl. In the United States, most sugar packets offer 2-4 grams of sugar in each packet. Generally you will find the equivalent to one teaspoon of sugar inside each packet. The size and weight of each sugar packet can vary from manufacturer, and by location. Poland offers a standard sugar packet that contains anywhere from five to 10 grams of sugar in each packet.
