In this blog post we look at when to use gram and when to use gramme.
"Gram" and "gramme" are alternative spellings of the same unit of measurement, which is used to measure weight or mass. The gram is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI).
The word "gram" is the preferred spelling in most of the English-speaking countries, while "gramme" is the older spelling that is less common and used mostly in British English.
For example: "This recipe calls for 500 grams of flour" or "This recipe calls for 500 grammes of flour"
In summary, both "gram" and "gramme" are correct spellings, and they are used interchangeably to refer to the unit of measurement for weight or mass.
The choice between "gram" and "gramme" may depend on the region or preference, but "gram" is the more commonly used spelling and "gramme" is an older spelling that is less common.
