Grams to Cups is different depending on the weight of the item.

Flour is 500 grams => 4 cups US
Sugar (Caster/Superfine) is 500 grams => 2.22 cups US
Sugar (Icing/Powdered) is 500 grams => 4 cups US

Flour is 150 grams => 1.2 cups US
Sugar (Caster/Superfine) is 150 grams => .67 cups US
Sugar (Icing/Powdered) is 150 grams => 1.2 cups US

Flour is 50 grams => .4 cups US
Sugar (Caster/Superfine) is 50 grams => .22 cups US
Sugar (Icing/Powdered) is 50 grams => .4 cups US

Hope that helps you out.

There's an old joke about this .....

How much does a cup of something weigh?
Depends ... a cup of nails or a cup of feathers?

remember, grams is weight and cups is volume, so it's definitely an apples and oranges thing.

im from the uk, we always weigh ingrediants. i dont understand why you would use cups, which is pretty inacurate compared to actually weighing it.
but anyway, you can always go to ask.com or google and just type in 500g cocolate into cups, and your answer comes up.

Americans also don't do metric when it comes to measuring length.... we use inches, feet and yards, etc. icon_lol.gif
