On the RTE newsfeed there’s a new overview over recommendations about sugar consumption:
Academics in China and the US conducted an "umbrella review" on the health impacts of sugar intake.
This means that they examined evidence from multiple existing reviews of evidence and in total examined data from 73 meta-analyses involving 8,601 studies.
The authors found "significant harmful associations" between dietary sugar consumption and diabetes, gout, obesity, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, asthma, tooth decay, depression, premature death and some cancers - including breast, prostate and pancreatic cancer.
Meanwhile, every 25g/day increment of fructose intake was associated with a 22% increased risk of pancreatic cancer, the review suggests.
Mór Taste is currently the only jam brand in Ireland that reduces sweetness and sugar content to a minimum.
