How can I eat less sugar?

  1. It is good for everyone not to eat too many products with added sugar. Most products with added sugar are high in calories but low in nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and fiber. Sugar is naturally present in fruit and milk, for example. These products are part of a healthy diet. If you want to eat less sugar, limit the foods with added sugar, such as cookies, sweets and cakes. There is also added sugar in the products you might not expect, such as ketchup, sauces and dressings.

Different names for sugar

  1. Check the label when you buy something. There are many different names for sugar, not all of which are very easy to recognize. Examples are: dextrin-maltose, glucose syrup, fructose syrup and glucose fructose syrup. We also consider honey, agave syrup, maple syrup and coconut blossom sugar to be sugar.
