Sugar, Sugar Everywhere
And the answer is: 22.7 teaspoons/day
And the question was: what is the actual amount of sugar consumed daily by the average American?
Compare that to the recommended guidelines:
women – 6 ½ teaspoons daily
men – 9 ½ teaspoons daily
You know what’s scary? 22.7 teaspoons, or roughly ½ cup of sugar, doesn’t sound like a lot to me.
I must have a sugar problem.
Most of us Americans do.
