A sugar packet has about 4 grammes of sugar and 16 calories in it. A teaspoon of sugar and a normal sugar cube are both equal to a packet of sugar.
Sugar consumption is recommended at 32 grammes per day, which is equal to 6% of daily calorie intake and six sugar packets. Sugars can be found naturally in meals including milk, fruit, and vegetables. These sugars also contain nutrients that are beneficial to the body. Because they have little nutritional benefit, processed sugars found in foods like Fruit Loops, ketchup, and syrup are considered bad sugars.
