The Sugar Crisis

Imagine a kilo of sugar - the large bag that you might buy in a supermarket. This is the amount the average adult consumes in a fortnight. 

The over consumption of sugar has become a real issue. While many of us aim for a well balanced diet, the issue largely arises from the hidden sugars in the foods and drinks we consume. Modern convenience and processed foods often contain large amounts of sugar. 

As part of our #BeSugarSmart campaign, Pharma Nord surveyed over 500 adults about their sugar habits. The research reveals the scale of our reliance on sugary snacks, processed foods and sugar-loaded drinks.
