Surprising Foods with More Sugar Than A Krispy Kreme Doughnut

9 Surprising Foods With More Sugar Than A Donut |

'A major new report by Credit Suisse Research Institute1 explores the impact of sugar and sweeteners on humans’ diets, with some shocking revelations and statistics.

Worldwide, the average person consumes 70 grams of sugar and high-fructose corn syrup per day (that’s 17 teaspoons), up 46 percent from three decades ago.

Yet, in countries like the US, Brazil, Australia and Mexico, sugar consumption is actually much higher, averaging 40 teaspoons per person per day for Americans (compared to just seven for those living in China).

And when children younger than 4 are removed from the mix, sugar consumption in the US rises by another 5-10 percent! It’s a shocking amount of sugar, but what is even more startling is the potential damage it can do to your health.'
