A carton of flavoured milk can contain as much sugar as a can of soft drink, consumers have been warned.
Analysis of more than 90 popular chilled flavoured dairy milks reveals many of the best-sellers contain more than a day’s worth of added sugar in a single hit.
The worst offender was Ice Break 750ml Iced Coffee with nine teaspoons of added sugar per bottle, the equivalent of 22 red frog lollies, according to the research released by Cancer Council Victoria on Friday.
A can of Coca-Cola contains 10 teaspoons of added sugar.
The World Health Organisation recommends no more than six teaspoons of added sugar in a day.
