 `What's is the approximate volume of 250 g wheat (or rye) flour?`
 ```Hello poetryinmotion, I'm glad that you included the word "approximate" in your question, because the estimate of weight per volume varies. It appears that the USDA has estimated 120 grams per cup for whole wheat flour and 102 grams per cup of rye flour.

"How to Measure Flour" About.com http://busycooks.about.com/library/archive/blmeasureflour.htm Given the figures of 120 grams and 102 grams, the volumes would be approximately 2.08 cups and 2.45 cups, respectively. - justaskscott Search strategy: Searched on Google for combinations of these terms: "wheat flour" "rye flour" grams cup 102 120 "140 grams"```
