It is recommended to keep added sugar to less than 10% of total calories. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a range of 5-10% of total calories a day. So if you consume 1200 calories/day, that is no more than 120 calories or 8 teaspoons of added sugar a day. If you consume 1800 calories/day, that is no more than 180 calories a day or 12 teaspoons of added sugar.
