Sugars are naturally found in fruits, vegetables, milk and grains. Artificial sugars - that are often added to foods, drinks and condiments to help with preservation - may increase the risk of heart disease. Added sugars and increased added sugar consumption is linked to the obesity epidemic in the U.S. Added sugars have also been linked to high cholesterol, high blood pressure, inflammation and diabetes.
The below infographic from the American Heart Association explains where you might find added sugars and how to avoid those added sugars.
The American Heart Association recommends daily limit of 100 calories of added sugars (6 teaspoons) for women, and about 150 calories of added sugars (8 teaspoons) for men.
