Re: Children’s fruit drinks are laden with sugar, study finds
"A standard 200 mg portion of almost half of the products assessed contained more than a child’s entire daily recommended maximum sugar intake of 19 g, equal to almost five teaspoons."
If, indeed, manufacturers have managed to somehow defy the laws of physics and cram 19 g of sugar into 200 mg of fruit drink, then I think your characterization of the levels of sugar in such beverages as being "unacceptably high" is a woeful understatement.
I kid of course, and can only assume that this was meant to read "200 mL."
