What are sugar-sweetened beverages?
Sugar-sweetened beverages are drinks that have various forms of added sugars like corn syrup, dextrose, fructose, glucose, molasses, and more. They’re everywhere—sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, juices, sweetened teas, and some coffee drinks. While you may not think twice about having a soda with dinner, it could have nearly 10 teaspoons of added sugar.
