Sugar Recommendations – Nutrition Interview with Jon Hinds Part 3

There are many discussions lately about sugar intake.  Unfortunately with processed foods most people don’t even realize how much sugar they intake per day. For example a 12-oz can of soda on average has 35 grams of sugar! It is difficult to think of sugar in grams ~ heres a tip one teaspoon of granulated sugar is about 4.2 grams thus if your soda has 42grams of sugar / divide by 4.2 = 10 teaspoons of sugar!! Yikes!

be savvy and don’t buy products that list high fructose corn syrup in the ingredients, especially the first 3!
