She suggested that one try to shoot for 20 to 40 grams per day. So I picked up my trusty copy of The NutriBase Nutrition Facts Desk Reference, by Dr. Art Ulene. I expected to be able to quickly find the grams of sugar in my morning banana. But it wasn't listed anywhere.
This is a very thorough book. When I was keeping a log of the calories I consumed last year, I generally found the information I wanted within its pages. So I was shocked at this gap.
Today's trip to Barnes and Noble revealed that while many books give detailed lists of components of the food we eat, I found none that listed the sugar grams.
For most foods this isn't a problem, it's on the label. But for whole foods I'd like to know.
Does anyone have a guide that has this vital information?
