One question we get asked about every day is, "How much sugar is in your granola?" Well, how much sugar do you think?
How much sugar is in a serving of Coca Cola? 29 grams
How much sugar is in a Snickers? 57 grams
The American Heart Association(AHA) recommends that men eat no more than 9 teaspoons of sugar in a day and that women consume no more than 6 teaspoons according to Medical News Today.
How many grams of sugar in a teaspoon? 4 grams
Both popular snack items we mentioned above exceed the daily recommendation for women and according to our calculations, men would go over their suggested limit if they enjoyed both items in the same day!
So back to the question we get asked so much. How much sugar is in a serving of our granola? It depends on the flavor. To view the complete nutrition data for each flavor, just click on “Our Products” at the top of the page and then click on the flavor you are interested in.
Dark Chocolate Chip, like many of our flavors, has 8 grams of sugar or 2 teaspoons per serving. Our Cinnamon Pecan granola contains 6 grams of sugar or 1.5 teaspoons per serving. So, when choosing an afternoon or evening snack, consider all of our granola is a better option than a candy bar or a soda!
