    There is anywhere between 7-10 calories per teaspoon, depending on the type of sugar. Demerera (brown sugar) is very light and only around 6/7 calories. If you want to watch calories (why i dont know) switch to sweetner it usually tastes the same (especially in your coffee or tea) and lowers intake of sugar and kcal.

    One teaspoon of white granulated sugar contains 16 calories. All of these calories are from carbohydrates: sugar has no protein or fat.
