“How much sugar is in what we commonly eat and drink?” That was my question in the science fair. Our research found that people consume 17.7 grams per day, all leading up to 66 POUNDS a year. Can you believe that a 20 oz. Coca-Cola has 65 grams of sugar!? How much sugar do you consume each day? There are over 60 different names for sugar on food labels. In the USA, they are trying to pass a law that will show how much “added sugar” is in a product. That would make it much easier to know how much sugar companies add to foods. Here is video about sugar intake.
