Does the US Really Consume More Sugar?

america sugar consumption

What country eats the most sugar?

Hint, it’s not who you think.

American's are known worldwide to be obese. The United States ranking on the Top 10 of sugar consumption worldwide will shock you.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) adults with a normal BMI (Body Mass Index) should eat about 25 grams of sugar a day. 25 grams is considered a healthy amount.

Maybe American's are not fat because of our sugar consumption, but rather the food available for our consumption.​
