Which is how Americans end up eating a lot of it — about 20 teaspoons (or 48 grams) per day.

The thing is though, as BuzzFeed Health has reported, because sugar is associated with heart disease, diabetes, and obesity, the American Heart Association recommends limiting your daily added sugar intake to 24–36 grams per day (which is 6–9 teaspoons).
