Eat Out Sugar Smart!

Sugar Content of Coffee Shops, Restaurants and Fast Food Chains Highlighted in Unique Guide Eat Out Sugar Smart!


Image result for sugar snub eating out guide We all know sugar is public enemy number one, but avoiding the ‘white poison’ is easier said than done when eating or drinking out, with hidden sugars lurking around every corner, from Skinny Lattes to Friday night curries.

Help is now at hand however, in the form of the new Eating Out Guide from Sugar Snub… Following on from Sugar Snub's widely acclaimed debut book, their new Eating Out Guide is a unique and practical book detailing the sugar content of menus from the main high street coffee shops, restaurants and fast food chains.

The listings helpfully demonstrate the sugar content in order of teaspoons (tsp) in food and drink, helping consumers to make sugar smart choices. Also included are fat, saturated fat, salt and calories.

This is a welcome and necessary addition, since the UK Government and World Health Organisation in 2015 advised consumption of added sugar should be reduced to 5% of daily calories. Current consumption is up to 15%.

This book demonstrates how the amount of sugar in our diet has spiraled out of control, and acts as an aid to making more informed choices whilst eating out.

A visit to Starbucks shows a perceived healthy snack such as a granola bar contains 6.5tsp of sugar, whereas a butter croissant only 1tsp. Skip down the road to Costa and a ‘refreshing’ Mango Creamy Cooler contains 16.5tsp of sugar, nearly 2.5 times the recommended sugar intake for someone 11+years.

Pudding options are astounding; Weatherspoon’s Ice Cream Sundae provides a whopping 24tsp, but Zizzi Gelato 1.5tsp per scoop.
Surprisingly sugar is also hiding in many savoury products making it difficult to choose wisely. However, a quick scan of the Guide's listings show the best options to choose, even the healthiest pizza bases.

The menu listings are comprehensive and include: Starbucks, Costa, Caffé Nero, Pret a Manger, Zizzi, Carluccios, Nando’s, Pizza Express, Yo Sushi, Wagamama, Wetherspoons, Domino’s, McDonalds, KFC, Burger King and Subway.
