Thank you Becky, this is exactly what I was looking for.

The sugar listing on a food label is somewhat deceiving for it includes "added sugar" but also the sugar in fruit, dried fruit, and milk and yogurt, etc.

I really like this PDF from the USDA which lists the "added sugar" in over 2000 foods.

I think it can manually help you determine how much sugar you are getting.
The recommendation is no more than 6-7 teaspoons daily, which would be about 24-28 grams.

Let me know if you need more help with this.

You cannot track sugar grams on the Spark tracker.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

How can I track my sugar intake so I know how many tsp. I'm getting in a day. It's not a nutrient I can add. Sucrose and such is, but not just plain sugar.
