Sue Baker's view...

With the scandal of sugar being loaded into everything from potato salad to tomato soup it’s not easy to cut-down sugar consumption. However Angela Dowden’s guide gives you the low-down on the sugar in 1,000’s of branded and unbranded foods allowing you to check and compare. She also includes daily food planners so you can take charge of the amount of sugar you consume.

Synopsis

Sugar Counter How to Shop without Sugar by Angela Dowden

Everyone's talking about sugar - and how we can eat less of it. Low sugar diets have been everywhere in January 2014, but this time it's about more than 'new year, new you' fad diets - the danger of this ubiquitous food have been confirmed by extensive scientific research which links high sugar consumption to a whole range of serious health problems including diabetes and heart disease. The good news is that we can easily protect ourselves and our families from this threat by simply moving our dietary focus away from sugar and towards the kind of foods our bodies really need to function well - whole grains and high-fibre foods. However, as food companies use sugar as a cheap way to 'bulk out' a whole range of foods, this isn't as simple as avoiding the confectionery aisle in the supermarket. With the Sugar Counter, you can now check what's really in the food you put in your trolley as you walk around the shop or do your online order for the week. With over 1000 everyday foods covered, both branded and unbranded, and daily food planners to give an idea of a healthy level of sugar consumption, you can control your sugar intake, rather than the other way around.

For the last 15 years she has also worked as a journalist, writing for everybody from the World Cancer Research Fund to Closer magazine, covering everything from energy density and the fat content of minced beef to the latest celebrity diet. In 2012 she was awarded Nutrition and Health Writer/Broadcaster of the Year. Her nutrition philosophy is fad-free and pragmatic; she loves food and doesn't do lectures on lentils (although she thinks they're lovely!).
