How much does 0.5 cups granulated sugar equal to?
That is a 1/2 cup of sugar, or approximately 125 gm
Grams is a measure of weight/mass, cups is a measure of volume. The two can not be equated without information as to the density of the material being measured. You have said the material is sugar and granulated sugar weighs at 211.34 gram per (metric cup). So 370 go of granulated sugar = 370/211.34 = 1.75, or one and three quarter cups.
Cornstarch is added to confectioners (powdered) sugar to prevent the sugar from lumping, so the amount is quite minimal. And adding cornstarch to granulated sugar isn't what makes it confectioners sugar. Confectioners sugar is much finer and softer than granulated sugar, it has a texture much like that of cornstarch. So you would have to be able to grind granulated sugar into a very fine powder in order to make it like confectioners sugar.
zero. They are two different grades of refined white sugar. Caster's sugar is a very fine ground granulated sugar, often called fine or superfine granules in the US. Granulated sugar is the more common table sugar, typically purchased for household use. 2 Tbs. of "caster's" sugar can be substituted for 2 Tbs. of granulated sugar. 2 Tbs. of granulated sugar can be ground or pounded down to make 2 Tbs. of caster's sugar.
Confectioners sugar (also called Powdered sugar) differs from "regular sugar" (Granulated sugar) in two ways. Confectioners sugar it's milled to a much finer grain and, and it has cornstarch in it to prevent caking. If you run of of Granulated sugar, you can substitute with Confectioners sugar. Multiply the amount of granulated sugar needed by 1.75. It takes 1 3/4 cup of powdered sugar to substitute for 1 cup of granulated sugar.
BROWN SUGAR: 1 lb. brown sugar = $0.89 2.25 cups packed brown sugar = 1 lb. $0.89 / 2.25 cups = $0.395 per cup of brown sugar $0.024 per Tablespoon, $0.0082 per teaspoon GRANULATED SUGAR: I bought a 5-lb. bag for $1.89. Probably not the cheapest. $1.89 / 5 = $0.378 per pound of sugar 2.25 cups = 1 lb. $0.378 / 2.25 = $0.168 per cup of sugar
It depends on what you're doing with it. "Confectioner's Sugar" is more widely known as "powdered sugar". If you're just dissolving it in liquid anyway, then it doesn't matter (much) which you use. If you're trying to make cake frosting with it, then your cake frosting is liable to turn out gritty if you try to use granulated sugar.
It can be either solid or liquid. When they make sugar, it's liquid. Some of it goes out in liquid form, and there it's called sugar syrup. Manufacturers like sugar syrup better than granulated sugar because it dissolves much easier. A lot of it goes out in solid form, either granulated or powdered.
First, powdered sugar is not simply pulverized granulated sugar. There is cornstarch added to keep the extremely fine "regular" sugar from sticking together. Second, just from calorie count, one would need 50 - 75 percent more powdered sugar. Third, it tastes different. I know this from experience...ran out of granulated sugar...replaced it with powdered sugar...threw out my cup of tea! Finally, it's considerably more expensive. I would consider replacing powdered sugar with granulated--blend in blender…
No, flour weighs much less than granulated sugar. Let us first differentiate between fluid ounces and ounces. Fluid ounces are a volume measurement; regular ounces are considered a weight measurement. Experiments will show that granulated sugar is about eighty percent the weight of water [cup for cup], while flour (not densely packed but flowing into cups is about half the wight of water [cup for cup].
