WHO–Updated Sugar Guidelines

By: Nikki Nies

TIME magazine brings up the argument if WHO’s new sugar guidelines are too harsh. With many Americans consuming 13% of their total kcal from sugar,specifically from processed foods, I can see how their argument could be valid.

Check out some commonly consumed foods and how much sugar they contain.  But first, let me put it in perspective, 1 T of ketchup=4 g; frozen pizza as much as 26 g.

Some argue WHO’s original recommendation of a 10% of total calorie restriction may be more realistic.  What do you think?
