UK Sugar Tax

Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin

The UK is taxing sugar in a move to reduce sugar consumption. The RRDi has long shown that sugar is a rosacea trigger. We hope this move by the UK will spread to other countries. The health benefits of reducing sugar consumption are worth the effort. 

"From now on, drinks with a sugar content of more than 5g per 100ml will be taxed 18p per litre and 24p for drinks with 8g or more. It’s hoped the tax will help to reduce sugar intake, as scientists have shown that sugary drinks lead to weight gain and diabetes. Figures show that 58% of women, 68% of men and 34% of 10- to 11-year-olds in the UK are classed as overweight or obese."
