Focus - FSA targets sugar in drinks
By: Olly Wehring
A review of the UK Food Standard's Agency's added sugar targets in soft drinks.
The announcement by the UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) of voluntary recommendations on added sugar levels in soft drinks received a mixed response from campaigners while industry advocates were pleased that the FSA had acknowledged the work already done to develop healthier products. Ben Cooper reports.
The UK Government's food watchdog has called on soft drinks producers to reduce their use of added sugar and offer smaller pack sizes for full sugar drinks.
Soft drinks companies operating in the European Union are to be forced to flag up on the front of bottles the use of artificial colourings linked to hyperactivity in children, under new EU rules.
The UK Food Standards Agency will not pressure companies to use the traffic light system as the sole method of flagging up sugar levels in drinks.
