How Much Sugar Are We Drinking? - Mass Central

In 2016 the United States Department of Agriculture reported that supermarkets, grocery stores, and food/drug stores observed that people spent more money on soft drinks. Also, other sugar-sweetened beverages such as fruit juices, energy drinks, sweet tea and soft drinks accounted for 7 percent of Americans’ food budget.

According to beverage industry figures, soft-drink makers produce 10.4 billion gallons of regular soda every year. That’s enough to serve every American a 12-ounce can every day.
