While a gram is a metric weight measurement, a cup is a volume measurement. These types of measurement conversions are useful for recipes and cooking. However, different ingredients have different conversion equivalents. For example, 100 grams of water is equal to approximately 0.423 cup.

Dry ingredients, such as all-purpose flour, salt, different types of sugar, cocoa powder and flaked coconut have different conversion equivalents for grams to cups. For example, while 100 grams of confectioner’s sugar equals 1 cup, 100 grams of table salt is equal to one-third cup.
