1tsp sugar = 4.2g “sugars”
To work out how much sugar is in your drink, convert grams
of sugars into teaspoons using the steps below:
1. Check the nutrition label. Note how many servings there are
in the bottle, carton or can.
2. Add up total grams of sugars, taking the number of servings
into account.
3. As it’s complicated to divide by 4.2, divide the total grams
of sugars by 4. This gives you the approximate equivalent
number of teaspoons of sugar.
