Maybe not a lot but, if you are wondering, maybe you should cast your eye over Medical News Today’s guideline amounts here. It is all very approximate as they do talk about the amount of sugar in a chocolate chip muffin – what size muffin? what ingredients?….
But it does give you a sort of handle – and some of the most alarming amounts will be accurate as they will have taken them off the pack. So, of your absolute maximum of 13 teaspoons of sugar a day (which already seems like about twice too much but that is what MNT’s ‘nutritionists’ say), one standard can of CocaCola will have used up 7 teaspoons, only exceeded by a can of Red Bull which will use up 7.5 teaspoons….
And as for the breakfast cereals…. Bearing in mind that these are US cereals rather than UK ones – the aboslute corker is Honey Smacks at 14 teaspoons of sugar per 100grams! Next up, Fruit Loops at 10.6 and Lucky Charms at 9. Come back Cheerios – at 1.1 teaspoons all is forgiven!!
