Our vibe on sugar is along these lines. We aim to eliminate fructose we have identified excess fructose as being problematic to our health. You can read more on our stance on fructose and glucose on our website by following this link.
To do this:
- We recommend sticking to 6-9 teaspoons of sugar per day (3 for kids), which is in line with the World Health Organization. Less is better if possible!
- This limit includes added sugars from rice malt syrup, honey, syrups, dried fruit and fruit juice, but not those sugars found in fruit, veggies or dairy.
- We recommend 2-3 pieces of low-fructose whole, fresh fruit per day.
- There is no limit on how many vegetables, whole grains or full-fat dairy products you consume. However, yes, they do all contain a small amount of natural sugars, but not the kind we aim to avoid.
