How many teaspoons of sugar are in your food?

"The glycemic index predicts how much glucose you are going to absorb into your blood, compared to pure glucose. Brown bread has a lower glycemic index than table sugar. The teaspoon equivalent makes it easier to see how much a food raises blood sugar. For example, 150 g boiled rice will raise blood sugar as much as 10 teaspoons of sugar will do."

I was going to say "too many" teaspoons of sugar. I should cut back. Thanks for sharing.
Have a happy day!

That is a great way to explain it by comparing to teaspoons of sugar, it would be nice to have a list of all the comparisons, I wonder if all rice is that high or is the brown rice any less. Thankfully I am not a big rice eater but I do like my potatoes
