What is the suggested daily intake for sugar?

Answer

The American Heart Association recommends 9 teaspoons or less of added sugar for men a day and 6 teaspoons or less for women. There are about 4 grams of sugar in a teaspoon. Added sugars are found in foods such as bread, chips, yogurt, soda, juice blends, etc. Try to eat foods that contain natural sugars such as fruit, vegetables, 100% fruit juice, and more to limit added sugar consumption.
