Mott’s Apple Juice – 14 fl oz – 12 teaspoons of sugar

12 teaspoonssugary drinks 004                        Serving Size:  14 fl oz

Servings/Container:  1 serving

Calories:  200 calories

Sugar:  48 grams per serving and per container

Teaspoons of sugar/container:  approximately 12 teaspoons of sugar (48 divided by 4 = 12)



= 1 tsp = approximately 4 grams


This is not a bad choice even though it has a lot of calories and 12 teaspoons of sugar.  The sugar listed on the ingredient list is NOT High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS); therefore, it’s probably a more natural fructose sugar (not a processed sweetener from corn).

Next week I’ll explain the differences between Sucrose (table sugar) and High Fructose Corn Syrup.
