Consumption of Added Sugar Among U.S. Adults, 2005

Consumption of Added Sugar Among U.S. Adults, 2005-2010

The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention National Center for Health Statistics examined survey data from thousands of adults to determine if they were following the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The guidelines advise limiting total intake of added sugars, fats and other “discretionary calories” to between five percent and 15 percent of total calories consumed each day.

The new report finds that from 2005 to 2010 American adults got 13 percent of total calories from added sugar alone. Sugar is full of calories that can lead to weight gain and sugary items can displace the consumption of healthier foods.

Key findings include:
• The mean percentage of total calories from added sugars decreased with increasing age and increasing income.
• Non-Hispanic black men and women consumed a larger percentage of their total calories from added sugars than non-Hispanic white and Mexican-American men and women.
• More of the calories from added sugars came from foods rather than beverages.
• More of the calories from added sugars were consumed at home rather than away from home.

Recent analyses indicate that children and adolescents obtain approximately 16 percent of their total caloric intake from added sugar.
