According to the American Heart Association,

“For most American women, that’s no more than 100 calories per day, or about 6 teaspoons of sugar. For men, it’s 150 calories per day, or about 9 teaspoons.”

Women: less than 100 calories, 6 tsp or 24g of added sugar per day.

Men: less than 150 calories, 9 tsp or 36g of added sugar per day.

(Consider 1 tsp as equal to 4g of sugar.)
