Daily Sugar Intake

According to this article on NPR the FDA proposed a new nutrition label that also list the daily percent value of added sugars in foods.  “What this means is that, instead of just listing the 65 grams of added sugar in that Coke, soda companies would be required to list that it represents 130 percent of the recommended daily intake. In other words, that one bottle contains more added sugar than you should be eating in an entire day.”

Who decides the daily recommended amounts?  The FDA of course.  They state that added sugars should not exceed 10% of your daily calories.  For a 2000 calorie-a-day-diet that works out to 12 teaspoons or 48 grams per day.  Keep in mind that is for added sugars only which excludes naturally occurring sugars in foods like fruits.  To me, that number could be cut in half, especially given the current state of health of our country but maybe it will open some eyes when the label blatantly tells people that this 20oz. bottle of Coke has more sugar than you should eat in an entire day.  

What do you think?
