Reading about the effect that Sugar has on our bodies, made me wonder just how much sugar I do take in every day. Well, it wasn’t just the reading about it, but more the discussion that I had with my wife about it, and her comment that I should maybe take note of the amount of sugar that I do ingest.
I only have 2 cups of coffee each day with 2 spoons of sugar each cup, so about 30 grams per day…
5 gms = Teaspoon level
8 gms = Teaspoon slightly heaped
So what else do I eat, that has sugar, and how much ?
Ice Cream on a Stick
13.2 gms = Milk Ice confection, the Woolworths homebrand one.
14.6 gms = Nestle Peters Choc Wedge Violet Crumble.
Ice Cream in a Tub
My average serve is about 165 gms, so my intake is about 40 grams per serve or about 8 level teaspoons of sugar, using the ALDI one, which I prefer to the Woolworths one, even though the Woolworths Homebrand is the most popular of all, according to Choice.
50 gms per 100 gms = Dairy Fine Milk Chocolate (that’s about 2 gms of sugar (half a teaspoon) per small square of chocolate)
46.8 gms per 100 gms = Moser Roth Dark Chocolate – Mint
I just ate 6 squares of chocolate from the fridge while checking this, so that’s another 2 teaspoons of sugar. !!
less than 1 grm per 100 gms in all the Cheeses that I eat.
1 gram per 2 slices of standard white bread
