JRC scientists have compiled a report with estimates of the sugars content of several food and drink categories in 2015. It provides a baseline to assist with the monitoring of progress on food product reformulation. This supports the EU target to reduce added sugars by a minimum of 10% by 2020. The new JRC report provides estimates for total sugars content for 22 European (20 EU) markets, as indicated on labels and required by Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 on the provision of food information to consumers, for the categories soft drinks, breakfast cereals and dairy products.
