Our survey has discovered some startling results about the UK’s relationship with sugar

Do you know how much sugar it is healthy to consume? Do you think there needs to be more education around sugar’s effects?

Our 2017 Sugar Survey has found a number of interesting and concerning facts about the UK’s relationship with sugar. The survey of 267 responses – from all parts of the UK – found that 86% of people in the UK are unaware of the daily amount of sugar recommended by the NHS, and 84% also believe there needs to be clearer labelling on UK food packaging.


We’ve created an easy-to-read, clear infographic with some of the most important results discovered through the survey.
