Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 1,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Rice
In other words, 370 grains is 1,100 times the weight of a Grain of Rice, and the weight of a Grain of Rice is 0.0009 times that amount.
(conventional; US; long-, medium-, and short-gran varieties; uncooked)
With great differences in variety, the average among a sampling of common short-, medium- and long-grain rices finds that a single grain weighs about 0.320 grains before cooking. A staple through most of human history, archaeological evidence indicates that the earliest rice cultivation was about 11,500 years ago.
It's about 5,500 times as heavy as a Grain of Sand
In other words, 370 grains is 5,400 times the weight of a Grain of Sand, and the weight of a Grain of Sand is 0.0002 times that amount.
(medium grain)
With tremendous variety in the size of grain and the component material, grains of sand weigh an average of 0.068 grains. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 15.10 m (49.55 ft) in height.
It's about 6,500 times as heavy as a Sesame Seed
In other words, 370 grains is 6,590 times the weight of a Sesame Seed, and the weight of a Sesame Seed is 0.00015 times that amount.
(Sesamum indicum)
A sesame seed weighs approximately 0.0562 grains. The McDonald's Big Mac sandwich, which is well-known for its sesame seed top bun, accounts for the consumption of an estimated 31,000,000 grains of sesame seeds each day.
It's about 40,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Sugar
In other words, 370 grains is 38,400 times the weight of a Grain of Sugar, and the weight of a Grain of Sugar is 0.000026 times that amount.
(a.k.a. white sugar, a.k.a. white refined sugar, a.k.a. table sugar, a.k.a. sucrose, a.k.a. saccharose)
A grain of sugar weighs approximately 0.00965 grains. Sugar consumption varies widely by country; the average citizen of the United States consumes about 944,000 grains of sugar each year.
It's about 80,000 times as heavy as a Poppy Seed
In other words, 370 grains is 80,000 times the weight of a Poppy Seed, and the weight of a Poppy Seed is 0.000013 times that amount.
(Papaver somniferum)
Fifty percent oil by weight, a poppy seed weighs approximately 0.0046 grains. The true pigment of a poppy seed is brown in color, while the characteristic bluish color is an optical illusion caused by a layer of calcium oxalate crystals refracting light rays.
It's about 400,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Salt
In other words, 370 grains is 410,000 times the weight of a Grain of Salt, and the weight of a Grain of Salt is 0.00000244 times that amount.
The mass of a grain of salt is approximately 0.000903 grains. Salt consumption varies widely by country; the people of the United States consume a combined total of about 880,000,000,000 grains of salt each year.
