This video from CBC news, investigates whether sports drinks and energy bars make you a better athlete. Mmmm, not really. And the amount of sugar in the products!

So how much sugar in USN’s Ener-G Sports Energy Hydration Drink? Will you be surprised to know that 500 of drink contains  just over 18 gm of sugar, that is around 4.5  teaspoons of sugar? (4 grams of white sugar (granulated) is equal to 1 teaspoon of sugar)
