Sugars and Fibers Report
Delivering Nothing Less than Excellence
- Sugar is a building blocks of carbohydrates and it is naturally found in many foods such as fruit, milk, vegetables and grain.
- Excess added sugar consumption is tied to poor health outcomes in children. The sugar content of beverages and foods children are exposed to is mostly unknown, yet this information is imperative for understanding potential risks from overconsumption of sugar in early life.
- A new WHO guideline recommends adults and children reduce their daily intake of free sugars to less than 10% of their total energy intake. A further reduction to below 5% or roughly 25 grams (6 teaspoons) per day would provide additional health benefits.
- Sugars can be divided into two groups depending on their chemical behaviors: reducing sugars and non-reducing sugars. The main difference between reducing and non- reducing sugar is that reducing sugars have free aldehyde or ketone groups whereas non-reducing sugars do not have free aldehyde or ketone groups.
We perform the following test:
- Total sugar content
- Reducing sugar

- Added sugar
