Sugar has become ubiquitous in our modern diet in a variety of forms, and is most notably present in popular processed foods and sugary drinks. This title explains the latest consumption guidelines and data, detailing the amount of sugar added to common food and beverage items, the excessive consumption of which can lead to serious health conditions such as obesity, diabetes, tooth decay and heart disease. The book offers helpful advice on reducing unhealthy sugar intake through personal dietary behaviours such as how to identify sugars on food labels; it also presents perspectives in the ongoing debate over government policy approaches including a proposed sugar tax. How much sugar is it OK to eat, what are its health impacts, and how can we manage its consumption? Excessive sweetness has unsavoury consequences – how are you watching your sugar intake?
