WE’RE CON­SUM­ING WAY MORE SUGAR THAN WE THINK

THE AMOUNT OF ADDED SUGAR THAT THE AV­ER­AGE CANA­DIAN EATS IN A YEAR – with­out re­al­iz­ing it. The Heart and Stroke Foun­da­tion of Canada rec­om­mends that sugar com­prise only 10 per­cent of an adult’s daily calo­ries. Each of us should be con­sum­ing only 48 grams – slightly more than a bag of Skit­tles – of added sugar per day, rather than the 100 grams (nearly 2 1/2 bags of Skit­tles) we cur­rently in­gest.
