The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued new guidelines suggesting that cutting the amount of sugar we eat from the current recommended limit of 10% of daily energy intake to 5% would be beneficial.
That's about 25g (around six teaspoons) for an adult of normal weight every day.
To put this in context a typical can of fizzy drink contains about nine teaspoons of sugar.
The limits would apply to all sugars added to food, as well as sugar naturally present in honey, syrups, fruit juices and fruit concentrates.
