How much sugar may I consume per day?
4 grams of sugar equals one teaspoon Consider this method when reading nutrition labels to better visualize the amount of added sugar in a product. For instance, a 12-ounce can of cola has 39 grams of sugar, or about 10 teaspoons! The average American adult, adolescent, and kid eats around 270 calories per day, or 17 teaspoons of added sugar.
While we occasionally add sugar or sweeteners such as honey to foods and beverages, the majority of added sugar is found in processed and prepared foods. Sugar-sweetened drinks, sweets, and sweet snacks such as ice cream, pastries, and cookies are the primary sources of added sugars in the U.S. diet. Breakfast cereals and yogurt are big influences that are less evident.
The Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2020-2025 recommend that all Americans aged 2 and older consume fewer than 10% of their daily calories from added sugars. This corresponds to 200 calories or 50 grams of sugar per day on a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet (about 12 teaspoons of sugar).
- The American Heart Association proposes a tougher added-sugar restriction of 100 calories per day (about 6 teaspoons or 24 grams) for most adult women and 150 calories per day (approximately 9 teaspoons or 36 grams of sugar) for most adult men.
- In addition, the AHA advises a lower daily limit of added sugars for children aged 2 to 18 of less than 6 teaspoons or 24 grams per day, and no more than 8 ounces of sugary drinks per week. Visit Healthy kids “sweet enough” without added sweets for additional information.
