Swaps to reduce sugar

The World Health Organization recommends that added sugars should make up less than 10% of daily energy intake, and that a further reduction to below 5% would have additional benefits. 5% of total energy intake for an “average” adult is around 25grams (6 teaspoons) of sugar per day. (This applies to all sugars added to food by the manufacturer, cook or consumer – and to the sugars present naturally in honey, syrups, fruit juices and fruit concentrates. It doesn’t apply to sugars that naturally occur in milk and fruit.)
