How many grams does a teaspoon of creatine weigh?
Prev answer: Approximately 5 grams.
My measurements show that in actual standardized measures you
use for cooking:
1 level tablespoon = 11g
1 level tsp ~ 3.67g
This was measured w/ GNC brand unflavored creatine monohydrate
powder which is somewhat finer than table salt but coarser than
protein powder. Scooped 10 tablespoons, weighed that and divided by
10. (repeated 2x )
Note for the unfamiliar that the utensil teaspoon (that you
might eat cereal with) is generally a lot larger than the tsp
measurement. An average teaspoon from my drawer filled to "rounded"
(but not heaping) measured out to about 10g.
The instructions on the tub suggested that a 5g serving is "a
heaping teaspoon". That seems about right for a teaspoon MEASURE,
but NOT for the utensil.
