Over consumption of sugar is a growing problem.

  • The Center for Science in the Public Interest states that Americans eat 20 percent more sugar now than in 1986.
  • According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the average American eats 20 teaspoons of added sugar a day (this added sugar does not include lactose or fructose, the naturally occurring sugars in milk and fruit); that’s equivalent to 16 percent of total calorie intake.
  • Many two-ounce candy bars, 12-ounce sodas and one-cup servings of ice cream contain 10 or more teaspoons of added sugar.
  • The USDA recommends adults consume no more than 40g of sugar per 2000 calories.

Note: Strictly speaking all kilocalories are equal in energy terms, but most dietitians advise calorie savings achieved by consuming nutrient-dense foods in preference to “empty calorie” foods like sugar or sucrose, that contain calories but little if any nutrition.
