How to work out how much sugar is in your drink…….

  • It’s typically labeled by 100ml and the sugar is quoted in grams rather than teaspoons to make it harder to visualise.
  • A standard glass holds anywhere between 200ml to 250ml and a teaspoon is 4 grams of sugar.
  • If a 200ml glass of orange juice has 10 grams of sugar per 100 ml, it will have at least 20 grams of sugar in a glass
  • if you divide this by 4, you will be able to work out how many teaspoons of sugar can be found in one glass – in this case 5.
