Major soft drinks producers said that they have been cutting down their products’ sugar content over the years, and only a handful of products currently exceed the 12-per-cent sugar cap that the industry will commit to by 2020.
F&N Foods general manager Jennifer See said that over the last 12 years, the company has slashed the sugar content of its products by 29%. Among other things, it rolled out healthier options including sugar-free, reduced-sugar and low-fat variants, as well as beverages with low Glycemic Index, which measures the impact of foods on blood sugar.
At Pokka, more than 40% of its drinks contain 6% or less sugar, Pokka International chief executive Alain Ong said.
