Americans consume on average 22 teaspoons of added sugar each day, yet dietary guidelines recommend that added sugars contribute no more than 10% of daily calories. Discover the difference between natural and added sugars with the Be Sugar Smart Handout. The handout encourages consumers to enjoy foods with natural sugars, such as fruit, vegetables, and dairy products because of the additional nutrients they provide, than the empty calories found in foods high in added sugars. Handout addresses the difference between natural and added sugars, ways to identify added sugars, why we should limit our intake of added sugar, reasons why sugar is added to foods, and more.
