World Health Organization recommends daily sugar intake be less than 10% of energy intake:


Includes honey and syrup, but not sugars from fresh fruit.

Limiting it to 5% (6 tsp) would be even better.

I'll have to increase my energy intake substantially to get that number down to 10%.

Oh, shoot… I thought that was 10% of body weight. No wonder I keep twitching all the time.

Crap, it might be 10% for me just from what I put in my tea.
