Do the maths on your sugar intake!

Do the maths on your sugar intake!

Sugar in processed foods is behind everything from tooth decay to obesity.

The World Health Organization now recommends that we consume no more than 6 to 9 teaspoons of sugar per day for better health benefits.

To figure out the number of teaspoons in a serving, look at the nutritional information label on the package or tin.

Four grams equals one teaspoon so divide the number of sugar grams per serving by four.

It seems that we’re consuming heaps more sugar than we think.
