3 Delicious And Easy Recipes To Help Slash Your Sugar Intake

South Africans just can’t get enough of hoovering up the white stuff for a boost of energy, but while we know that sugar (what else would we be talking about?) can be detrimental to your teeth, waistline and gut, little attention is paid to the knock-on effects that can pose for your vital organs.

South Africans are estimated to consume up to 24 teaspoons of sugar per day—double the daily WHO recommendation.

According to the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health report:

Excess sugar intake, from sugar added to food products and especially sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs), is considered a major contributor to excess weight and obesity in adults and children [1,2]. Excess weight and obesity are associated with the steady rise of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as cardiovascular disease (CVD), type 2 diabetes, and various cancers.
