Naturally Sweet: a natural sweetness

Due to the universal appeal of sweet treats, until a few years ago people did not tend to question the wholesomeness of sugar in the things they ate.

However, recently there has been significant interest in the excessive sugar contents in the foods that we eat on a daily basis and how they can be a contributing factor in cardiovascular diseases and other conditions.

The World Health Organization, the American Heart Association and other organizations have given recommended daily limits for sugar intake for people to follow in their diets. The aim of the restrictions is to halt the spread of problems associated with overweight and obesity, especially during childhood.

Recommended daily limit

WHO =  50g means 10-12 teaspoons

American Heart Association = 30-50g

CONSUMER ATTENTION

71% of consumers check the sugar content before they buy a product.

Added sugar is the ingredient that causes most concern among consumers who take an interest in the nutrition information about products.
