The FDA just announced that Americans should eat and drink no more than 50 grams of sugar — the same as in a single can of Coke — each day. FDA also wants to change nutrition labels to differentiate between two kinds of sugar in food and drinks:
· That which is naturally occurring (like the kind in a super-sweet peach or honey crisp apple)
· That which is added in the production process (like the corn syrup added to soda, sports drinks, and many cereals)
For your reference, a can of soda, has 160 calories, 50 grams of sugar, no protein and no fiber.
