What's the deal with the 10g Sugar?

  • Does this mean we're allowed 10g a sugar per day? Or is that per meal? I'm asking because if I add fruits to my protein shake in the morning, I'm almost at 10g... Does that mean I can't eat fruit for the rest of the day? Or any other product that contains any sugar?

    The guidelines are explained a little more here:

    Basically, you want to keep your added sugar intake under 40g per day. It's okay to have a meal with up to 20g of sugar, as long as less than 10g are added sugar. So the fruit in your smoothie is fine, because it's mostly natural sugar.

      So can I add honey or some organic sugar to my smoothie as long as I don't go above 10 g? The protein powder tastes so chalky it made me gag! I need a way to gulp it down without tasting so much chalkiness
