Ah sugar sugar you are my candy girl
And you've got me wanting you.

Time to stop pussy footing around and ban all manufactured gloop with hidden sugar.

9 teaspoons of sugar in a coke, bring on my diabetes!

Why DO Mr Kipling's cakes taste so exceedingly sweet?

Gomsy you can't ban sugar, it's what honey and fruit juice is. What about dried dates and other dried fruits you sell?

How would you enforce a ban...have neighbours informing on each other, send offenders for reeducation through labour?

In the Democratic People's Republic of Gomsyopia as King for eternity, you can ban all manufactured crap so called food. Fresh produce only for the people, that means no whey powder, Thermobol tabs, creatin and protein bars...or baked beans, full of added sugar.

Use the sugar police obviously. And when a policeman asks you a question you say 'yes sweetie.'

This thread demonstrates the unique brand of stupidity that so many people engage in. Unless you are uber, uber denseythicky...the GOMS is obviously referring to sugar added by MANUFACTURERS....however you prefer to create a childish debate about yer long distance lorry driver, sitting in "Kooky's Cafe"...

I agree with the Gomsy about the 'added sugar'...ban it, ban it...well what the frack, lets just ban all processed gloop and be done with all the crap they are selling the donkeys. VIVA LA REVOLUCION!

Now then, there is no Kooky's Cafe.

The most alarming revelation is that sugar is added to water http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-magazine-monitor-25666556 Shouldn't the BBC name and shame the brands that practice this?

Not sure what good naming and shaming would do when all people have to do is read the labels. To many people these 'revelations' about processed food containing a lot of sugar are nothing new. If you can't be bothered to read the labels on food (or do and aren't bothered) then the BBC 'naming and shaming' these brands is unlikely to have much impact. Also, it's not quite as you present it. Still mineral water doesn't have any added sugar. The taste being the giveaway. The 'enhanced water' tastes sweet and has a label telling you exactly what is in it (including the amount of sugar and how that relates to your RDA). Personally I think teaching kids how to cook stuff from scratch would be far more effective than this attempt to compare sugar to tobacco and alcohol.

In reply to an earlier post on 10 Jan 2014 11:36:26 GMT
Oh yus, written in fonts so small you need a magnifying glass to read. But the front label screams in massive print, <<sparkling spring water LEMON & LIME with natural fruit flavours>>, no mention of sugar. And they give the amount of <<sucralose>> (donkeys don't know what that is) per 100ml, which is not a realistic serving.

OK this stuff has about 5 grams of sugar per litre bottle and is benign compared with Coke which has 120 grams (10 tablespoons), plus 200 mg of caffiene and 300 mg of sodium and God knows what other chemicals.

Ban it, ban it!!!

Dream on! Teaching kids to cook from scratch when their parents don't and can't, and are bringing them up from birth on processed gloop, lol.

TNF: We know very well what you meant. The subject has been on the news recently. The point is that one cannot ban added sugar. In some cases, in home and mass production of food, it is the sugar which gives food and drink its taste/flavour. If added sugar is banned, the companies will shut down because no-one will buy the product because of its awful taste. And all Mums will be upset when their family no longer await with eagerness their fresh baked cakes and biscuits. Moderation is the answer, not banning added sugar.

Read the contents on a bottle of water! It is supposed to be water and not contain sugar.

Dan Fante says:
The irony here is that you're being disingenuous be inferring that sugar is added to 'normal' bottled water whilst taking umbrage at what you perceive to be false advertising.

In reply to an earlier post on 10 Jan 2014 12:59:31 GMT
It IS added sugar that gives CRAP added taste and flavour. A two litre bottle of Coke has 240 grams of sugar...what's that about...Spin it?

When people stop adding salt and sugar and use quality ingrediants and herbs and spices a) food has taste and b) their taste buds RECOVER.

Way to go Gomsy!

I never referred to advertising at all. Water doesn't contain sugar and it is not 'disingenuous' to expect that when you buy water, water is what you get.

The article you linked to referred to 'enhanced water' rather than standard mineral or spring though. So, if you aren't being disingenuous, then you either didn't read the article properly or didn't understand it. Nowhere in the article does it state that normal bottled water has sugar added to it.
