22 teaspoons of added sugar. That’s how much the average American eats every day.
Compare that to the current recommendations from the American Heart Association of no more than 6 teaspoons of added sugar for women (100 calories) and no more than 9 teaspoons per day for men (150 calories).
You can start working to reduce your added sugar intake by looking at food labels and searching the ingredient list. The problem? A lot of those “sugar words” are hidden and have names you might not recognize! That’s why we were happy when Appetite for Health created this brilliant infographic to help you familiarize yourself with all those words. Enjoy!
