We all know about the sugar in cakes, cordials, ice cream and biscuits – but food manufacturers cleverly hide it in seemingly healthy foods like muesli bars, flavoured yoghurts, dried fruit, pasta sauces, tinned soups, salad dressings, tomato and barbecue sauces, some deli meats and even sushi.
For Dental Health Week 2020, we’re urging you to get sugar savvy! …
How much sugar is too much sugar?
Look at the sugar content per 100g serving – if it’s more than 15g you should consider looking for an alternative with a lower sugar content. Ideally, look for food and drinks with less than 5g per 100g.
Using the 100g column allows you to make comparison between products – essentially it lets your compare ‘apples with apples’.
