Sugar - How much is too much?

It is recommended that we should not have more thatn 90g of sugar a day.  This is around 18 tea spoons of sugar. 

Try to avoid hidden sugars

  • always read the label - sugar can be given many names - glucose, sucrose, maltose, corn syrup, invert suar and hydrolysed starch
  • low fat options of your favourite foods can contain more sugar than the original product
