How Many Grams in a Tablespoon: a Useful Memo for Different Products

A tablespoon is a universal measure of food in the kitchen if you don’t have a measuring cup or a kitchen scale. The difficulty with measuring with a spoon is that all substances have different volumes. To accurately measure the weight of an ingredient, you need to know exactly how many grams are in a tablespoon for a particular product.
