With Brits urged to get healthier following the devastating coronavirus pandemic, many of us will be opting to cut sugar out of our diets.
However, food and drink that we may think are fine to keep in our diets may not necessarily be the case as many contain a lot more sugar than we might think.
The World Health Organization recommends a maximum daily sugar intake of 25g – about 10 teaspoons – but a study published by Frontiers in Neuroscience found that many children, adolescents and adults in over 60 countries have a diet consisting of 100g every day.
The study found that the result of the high sugar intake was weight gain, as well as other health problems like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
The introduction of the government’s sugar tax in 2018 meant manufacturers of soft drinks containing more than 5g of sugar per 100ml must pay a levy of 18p a litre to the Treasury, or 24p a litre for sugar content over 8g per 100ml.
Food manufacturers have made steps to reduce sugar in their foods but there are still bars of chocolate that contain as much as eight teaspoons of sugar.
