Hi all, we are looking into the issue of added sugar in food products and are interested in potential labelling solutions.
What measurement method is the most meaningful for you? Here is an example; One serving of Kellogg’s NutriGrain contains;
- 10.7 grams sugar
- 2.5 teaspoons of sugar
- 2.5 teaspoons of sugar plus an image of 2.5 tsps of sugar
- 10% of your daily intake
To put this in context. In 2015, the World Health Organisation released a recommendation that no more than 10% of total daily energy intake should come from added sugars . For an average adult intake of 8,700kJ, this equates to 52g or 13 tsps of sugar. Interested in what makes most sense. Especially in regards to grams vs teaspoons.
