11 Countries That Consume the Most Sugar In the World

Sugar brings sweetness to the food but according to medical experts, consumption of too much sugar is not good for health. There are some countries in the world which consume large quantities of sugar as compared to other countries. Let’s read Insider Monkey’s article to find out about those countries and see if your country is one of them.

World Health Organization recommends maximum daily intake of 25 grams of sugar.  That’s about 6 teaspoons of sugar daily.  If you are taking your coffee with sugar, you are already in a problem area, depending on how many cups a day you drink. But sugar is contained in plenty of foods we consumed. For instance, one tablespoon of ketchup has 4 grams or one teaspoon of sugar. One can of Red Bull energy drink (8.3 oz.) has 27 grams of sugar, can of Coca-Cola (12 oz.) 39 grams and a small bottle of Mountain Dew (20 oz.) whooping 77 grams. 

One pastry of Pop Tarts has 34 grams of sugar and one Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll has 55 grams. Looking at these facts, it seems very hard to stay within WHO limits. Contrary to popular belief, sugar doesn’t cause diabetes, but it does lead to obesity and that is why there’s a strong correlation between countries that consume the most sugar and countries with high levels of obesity and diabetes.
