I smiled when I read this recent Buzzfeed post on 16 Supposedly Healthy Foods that Contain More Sugar than a Snickers bar. I do this sort of thing at home all the time, converting the grams of sugar in foods and drinks my family likes into teaspoons, then comparing to, in our case, a 12-ounce Coke. It drives them crazy, but how else will they relate?
Until sugar content is listed in teaspoons, not grams, with added sugars (the ones you should avoid) and naturally occurring sugars (the ones you should stress less about) listed separately, I’m doing the math: roughly four grams of sugar are the equivalent of one teaspoon. Simply divide the total grams of sugar in a product by four to figure out the teaspoon equivalent. So if a drink contains 40 grams of sugar, like that can of Coke, you’re talking 10 teaspoons of sugar.
