Much more sugar in products than necessary

  1. Comparable foods differ enormously in the amount of added sugar. This is shown by research by the Consumers' Association. For example, one manufacturer puts seven sugar cubes in its teriyaki stir-fry sauce and the other only one and a half sugar cube.

  1. This could be a lot less, says the Consumentenbond. She therefore urges the government to take the lead in reducing sugar. The association compared the sugar content of several similar products. The differences turned out to be enormous. For example, a cup of Wienermelange from Aldi contains 10.5 grams of sugar, 2.5 times as much as a similar product from Jumbo. And a Ravensbergen cereal bar contains 7 grams of sugar, while a comparable Bolletj bar contains only 2 grams of sugar. The Fairtrade Wok Sauce Teriyaki contains a lot of sugar, no less than 28 grams of sugar per portion. That's four times as much as in the Go-Tan Original Teriyaki sauce.

40 sugar cubes

  1. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a maximum of 50 grams (women) to 60 grams (men) free sugars per day. If consumers always choose the variants with the least sugar for the daily menu examined, they are already well above that with an average of 67 grams of added sugar. Consumers who choose the most sugary varieties will consume as much as 160 grams of sugar. This equals 40 sugar cubes. Bart Combà © e, director of the Consumer Association: 'We, together with the Diabetes Fund, the Heart Foundation and the Kidney Foundation, have been pushing for firm agreements on the content of sugar, salt and saturated fat in products since the start of the Agreement on Improving Product Composition in 2014. to get down. Unfortunately, the RIVM recently established that there is still too much sugar and salt in food. There is a crystal-clear advice from the Criteria Product Composition Committee: the government must itself set the standards for reducing sugar, fat and salt. We plead for the State Secretary to adopt this advice. ”
