How much sugar is too much sugar?

Sugar is a hot topic across the nutrition industry, with many brands trying to reduce sugar content without compromising flavour. 

This report looks at how an increased interest in sugar has shaped the bar market and how products are changing their nutritional profiles, including how the use of whole foods does not necessarily lower the sugar content. (including how sugar content is driven by ingredient choice/the tradeoff between ingredient choice and sugar content/nutritional values)
