The first episode of the BBC documentary series ‘The Truth About…’ aired a few nights ago and focused on most people’s guilty pleasure and go-to snack buddy: SUGAR. The programme was well-structured and gave very informative information regarding Britain’s sugar intake and highlighted the differences between natural and artificial sweeteners. The effects of high sugar consumption were also presented, including its effects on our brain and eating habits.
The programme prompted me to analyse my past relationship with the white stuff. Sure, I barely have refined sugars nowadays and I always look for the sugar content in anything I buy from the supermarket but how smart do I have to be to ensure the 6-teaspoon daily guideline is not exceeded?
