Tuesday 10 January, 2017  (80 min workshop)

There are over 50 names for sugar sprinkled liberally throughout our food supply. Does this mean we’re consuming sugar without even realising it? What are we actually talking about when we say ‘sugar’? Is there good sugar and bad sugar or are all sugars a sweet poison? Is sugar addictive? Do we really need to quit sugar or is the anti-sugar bandwagon just another fad? This workshop puts sugar under the microscope and explains the science behind the saccharides.

During this 80 minute workshop you will discover:

  • The 50+ different names for sugar!
  • When is sugar not sugar?
  • Why are doctors calling sugar ‘the new boooze’?
  • Is sugar or fat the main culprit in the obesity epidemic? Or both?
  • What are the new WHO (World Health Organisation) sugar consumption guidelines?
  • How to calculate your daily sugar intake.
  • How do different sugars affect the brain?
