Sugarwise certification launched in the US

Technology developed by Sugarwise to measure added sugars in foods was launched in the US in September [8]. Following on from the new FDA guidelines on food labelling, the technology is claimed to be the only way of independently measuring the added sugar in foods without requiring recipe information from manufacturers. The Sugarwise certification programme uses this test to award a kitemark to those products low in added sugar.

Sugarwise aims to increase awareness of added sugar in food and drink, helping people to control their added sugar intake. Foods containing added sugars tend to have less fibre and other nutrients than whole foods. The test was developed by scientists at Cambridge University and launched in the UK in March 2016.
