    All sugars, whether naturally occurring or added, affect the body similarly. Nutrition experts focus on reducing added sugars, such as in soft drinks or candy, because they don’t come with additional nutrients.

    Fruits contain a lot of sugar, but they also deliver fiber, phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals. Americans average 475 calories a day from added sugars, or 123 grams, which is the equivalent of 30 teaspoons of sugar.
