Do you have any idea how much sugar Americans eat?

sugarMost people know that they consume more refined sugar than they should, but do you have any idea how much sugar Americans eat? Actually, the consumption of sugar peaked in the year 2000 and has dropped, but not to an acceptable level. Would you believe that the peak consumption was 149 pounds per person? Look at a 5-pound bag of sugar on a grocery store shelf and imagine 29 of them in a row. That is not quite 149 pounds. You can read about it in our blog article, The Sugar Mill.
