Sugar: between love and mistrust
Publié le Sunday 24 November 2019

French people like sugar:
– 77% enjoy sweet sweets, twice the European average
– they crunch 7.6 kgs of chocolate / year.

Refined sugar is perceived negatively: calories – diabetes – health problem – cancer …
Compared to its alternatives: honey, coconut sugar, whole sugar, agave syrup …

This perception is even more significant since the 2019’s Finance Law which combats the overconsumption of sugar.
