How much
sugar is in
your favorite
beverage?
THE ANSWER COLUMN
Sugar sweetened beverages are a
favorite of people in the United States
of America. We are number two in the
world after Mexico in consumption of
these sugared beverages which
include soft drinks, sports drinks, ener-gy
drinks, fruit drinks, fl avored milk
and others.
These drinks are a leading source of
added sugar in the American diet.
They add empty calories and are par-ticularly
hard on the teeth.
The World Health Organization
(WHO) recommends a daily sugar
intake of 10% of total energy intake.
This translates to about 3 teaspoons of
sugar for a child age 4-8 and 6 to 9
teaspoons for an adult. One regular can
of soda contains 9 teaspoons of sugar.
A 20 ounce bottle of soda contains
about 16-19 teaspoons of sugar, more
than 5 days worth of sugar recom-mended
for a child according to WHO.
Delta Dental insurance has created a
display showing the amount of sugars
in a few common drinks. We have one
of those displays in our offi ce. You are
welcome to come in to the offi ce to
see it in person or visit our face book
page at www.facebook.com/Dr.
ThorMikesell to see pictures of the
display online.
Here are some common drinks and
the amount of sugars in them.
20 ounce citrus soda ...........19 tsp.
12 ounce cola .......................10 tsp.
8.3 ounce energy drink ..........7 tsp.
6.75 ounce juice pouch .........5 tsp.
6.75 ounce apple juice ...........6 tsp.
20 ounce sports drink ............8 tsp.
14 ounce chocolate milk ......11 tsp.
Limit 100% fruit juices which have
about the same amount sugar as
soda. Eat your fruit and drink water or
milk more and enjoy these sweetened
beverages as an occasional treat.
