Sugar Sales Dissolve
According to Nielsen research sugar sales are dropping as health-conscious Aussies realised there is nothing sweet about obesity.
And yet I took this picture in October 2016 at a rural supermarket which suggests sugar sales are alive and in a paint tin! Is a gimmick from the sugar company in an attempt to make sugar cute and sexy?
According to the Nielsen research sugar sales dropped by 3.5% in the last year.
People who say they don’t eat sugar are missing the point as hidden sugar may be the reason two thirds of Aussies are obese or overweight.
Unless you only eat fresh foods or foods to make yourself, you will be consuming added sugar. Ready-made sauces, breakfast cereals, some yoghurts, fruit drinks and sport drinks all contain added sugar.
Natural sugar is consumed in fruit (fructose) and dairy (lactose), and these are important nutrients we need for a balanced diet. Matt O’Neill, dietician says “Even vegetables like carrots and beetroot have a small amount of sugar.”vegetables, like carrots & beetroot have a small

It is practically impossible to eat a sugar free diet. However, it is a good idea to avoid added sugar, so be sure to read the food labels on pre-packaged food items.
