Sugar Overload

The World Health Organisation has recently issued a new guideline strongly recommending that we reduce our 'free sugar' intake to less than 10% of our total kilojoule intake, in order to reduce the risk of obesity and tooth decay
'Free sugars' refers to sugars added to foods and drinks by manufacturers, cooks and consumers, as well as those found naturally in honey, syrups and fruit juices
Much of the sugar we consume today is hidden in processed food and drinks that we may not think of as sweets - like smoothies and sports drinks.
Do you think about the sugar content in processed food and drinks? Are you surprised by how much sugar is in the drinks we've compared?
