Sugar limits

  • Posted on Apr 7, 2017

The American Heart Association has made the following recommendations about sugar limits:

Children = Limit to 3-4 teaspoons per day (max 16 grams a day)

Adult women/teens= Limit to 5 teaspoons per day (max 20 grams a day)

Adult men/teens= Limit to 8-9 teaspoons per day (max 36 grams a day)

COKE:

12-ounce can = 10 teaspoons of sugar

20-ounce bottle = 16 1/4 teaspoons of sugar

20-ounce bottle = 16 1/4 teaspoons of sugar

Water -zero
