How much added sugar?

Today, the World Health Organization issued its recommendation on sugar intake following a yearlong consultation and review.

 

Health Canada is consulting Canadians on its proposal to reform the way that nutrition information is represented on food labels, including a proposal to focus on "added sugars" and "total sugars." 

 

The WHO recommendation is summarized on the WHO website at: http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/releases/2015/sugar-guideline/en/
