Dietary carbohydrates include simple sugars (monosaccharides and disaccharides) and complex carbohydrates (starch and fiber). SIMPLE CARBOHYDRATES are found in fruits, grains, and most dairy products (i.e. milk and yogurt). Sugar- sweetened beverages (soda, juice, punch, Energy drinks, etc), candy, and other sweets also contain simple carbohydrate and added sugars. COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATES are found in whole grains (bread, cereal, rice, pasta, crackers), certain vegetables (beans, green peas, potatoes, corn, and winter squash), and other high-fiber foods. 9. Search your All Nutrients Spreadsheet (Sugar (g) Column) . A) List the 2 foods or beverages you consumed that had the MOST added sugar. B) List the amount of SUGAR (in grams) that each one contributed per day. Example: Low-Fat Strawberry Yogurt (36 g sugar) and Strawberry Jam (24 g sugar) . (1 point) Answer: Spaghetti Sauce 21.3 grams sugar and Apple 18.9 grams sugar 10. The average American now consumes 22 - 28 teaspoons (88 - 112 grams) of added sugar per day. This converts to 350 - 440 empty kcals. The current recommendation for added sugar intake is < 6 ½ teaspoons (26 grams or 100 kcals) per day for WOMEN and < 9 ½ teaspoons (38 grams or 150 kcals) per day for MEN.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
