Lesson learnt - always read the nutritional info

Yup, sickly. OTOH, it is the “preservative”. You’d have to it fresh otherwise ;-)

This is down the path of what I preach, everything in moderation

Whether its striking the right point is debatable, some will see it as too much, some will see it as too little and others will see it as just right

What the article doesn't mention is that WHO originally came to a much lower recommendations than 25g/day of sugar, but were the subject of intense pressure from US sugar interests to raise it.

Even at 25g/day though, that is close to giving up sugar for most people, given how widely sugar is used in our food.
