There are many of us who have sugar in our tea and will all of the different health risks that are around today there is more and more concern as to how many calories are in different things. In a teaspoon of sugar there are 15 calories, however this is going to change if the teaspoon is heaped and therefore is there if more sugar. You can expect there to be 25 calories on a heaped teaspoon that you may be putting in your tea or anything that you may be cooking. There is no avoiding the fact that sugar has calories in, but as long as you are not having too much on a daily basis you can be sure that you are not going to be at risk for any health problems. If you have never looked into how many calories are in a teaspoon of sugar before you may have thought that it was slightly more or even slightly less, you can be sure that you will be able to find inform on different amounts of calories when you search online for different foods.

There is nothing stopping you from enjoying the sugar that you have as we all need to have a balanced diet and sugar is a part of that. Ensuring that you don't have too much is going to allow you to enjoy the sugar that you do have and you are not going to have a voice in the back of your head telling you that there are more calories in the sugar than there actually are. It is all about enjoying the small things in life, and a teaspoon of sugar is a small delight that we can all enjoy and make the most out of.

16 calories per teaspoon of sugar

A teaspoon of sugar has 15 calories. There's 3 teaspoons that equal 1
tablespoon. So a tablespoon of sugar would have 45 calories.

Maybe mr. Practical is talking about a tablespoon which is 3 teaspoons?  Math would actually be close.  It wouldn't be the first time someone didn't know the difference between a teaspoon and a tablespoon.

If 4g has 15 calories it makes no sense at all that 5g has 20 and 6g has 25.

15/4 = 3.75
3.75 x 5 = 18.75
3.75 x 6 = 22.5

Basic maths.

One teaspoon of sugar is actually 42 calories as I did a practical test and this is far more reliable than your maths!

If you are counting calories to that level, you are either super buff, or missing the point completely.

Ever thought of exercise?
