# Paleo Baking Conversions – US to Metric Conversions

The post Paleo Baking Conversions – US to Metric Conversions appeared first on Paleo Flourish Magazine.

Paleo Baking (and gluten-free baking) can be confusing already, and the fact that most of the Paleo cookbooks and blogs are written by Americans means that you have to spend a ton of time doing Paleo Baking conversions for all your ingredients.

I still remember first learning that a cup was a standard measurement in America (it confused me to no end as a child growing up in the UK).

So, to help everyone who wants to try their hand at Paleo baking (or gluten-free baking), here’s a handy and comprehensive list of US to Metric conversions for Paleo, grain-free, and gluten-free baking.

I’ve also included a few ingredients that are typically not found in Paleo baking, but I thought it’d be useful to have the conversions for them anyway.

If I’ve missed any ingredient that you think should be on this Baking Conversions list that would help you convert US recipes, then please send me a message and let me know.

### A Few Common Measurement Abbreviations

Teaspoon = tsp
Tablespoon = tbsp
Grams = g
Kilograms = kg
Milliliters = ml
Liters = l
Fluid Ounces = fl oz
Pounds = lb
Ounces = oz
Fahrenheit = °F
Celsius = °C

### General Baking and Cooking Conversions – US to Metric

#### US To Metric Volume Conversions

1 teaspoon = 5 ml
1 Tablespoon = 3 teaspoons = 15 ml
1/8 cup = 2 Tablespoons = 1 fl oz = 30 ml
1/4 cup = 4 Tablespoons = 2 fl oz = 60 ml
1/3 cup = 5 Tablespoons = 2.7 fl oz = 80 ml
1/2 cup = 8 Tablespoons = 4 fl oz = 120 ml
2/3 cup = 10.5 Tablespoons = 5.3 fl oz = 160 ml
3/4 cup = 12 Tablespoons = 6 fl oz = 180 ml
1 cup = 16 Tablespoons = 8 fl oz = 240 ml
1 pint = 2 cups = 32 Tablespoons = 16 fl oz = 470 ml
1 quart = 4 cups = 64 Tablespoons = 32 fl oz = 950 ml
1 gallon = 4 quarts = 16 cups = 256 Tablespoons = 128 fl oz = 3.8 l

Please note that the imperial units (used in the UK) have an imperial teaspoon, Tablespoon, cup, pint, quart, and gallon measurement and that they are not the same as the US measurements by the same name.

#### US to Metric Weight Conversions

1 oz = 28 grams
16 oz = 1 lb. = 450 grams

1 inch = 2.54 cm
1 foot = 30 cm

#### Oven Temperatures – Fahrenheit to Celsius Conversions

The general formula to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius is: °C = (°F – 32) x 5/9

This provides the approximate oven temperature conversions:
200°F = 95°C
250°F = 120°C
300°F = 150°C
325°F = 160°C
350°F = 175°C
375°F = 190°C
400°F = 200°C
425°F = 220°C
450°F = 230°C
