F&N -- what are you saying? Singaporeans r not buying F&N sugary drinks because of "slow economic growth"??? They are hesitant about paying 80 cents for a can of Coke? $2+ for a bottle?

Sounds like bad-tasting mumbo jumbo. Everywhere, more consumers are turning away from sugary drinks as these contribute to weight gain and the risk of diabetes.
(Of course, F&N cannot put it plainly & truthfully like that....)

How Much Harm Can Sugar Do?



Real food, unlike sugar, is its own best regulatory system. Four apples contain sixteen teaspoons of sugar—way more than the recommended daily limit for added sugars. But few people want to eat that many apples, because the fruit contains fibre and other nutrients that help tell our bodies when we are full. Turn those four apples into juice, however, and you can circumvent the body’s signals, basically mainlining the excess sugar directly into your bloodstream.

Is fruit juice unhealthy?

The answer to this question depends on how it's consumed, and what foods it replaces. Fruit juice that has been robbed of its fiber and broad range of nutrients is basically just a concentrated source of sugar that lacks the supportive nutrients to help it digest and metabolize. Fruit juice elevates blood sugar more quickly than whole fruit, and the level of sugar that can be obtained from fruit juice is higher than the level found in whole fruit. For example, 120 calories' worth of whole apples contains about 24 grams of sugar, while 120 calories' worth of apple juice contains about 30 grams.



Additionally, many fruit juices that are sold in supermarkets contain only a small percentage of real fruit juice, and contain added sweeteners (sucrose or high fructose corn syrup). As a result, it is easy to consume a large amount of calories without getting any actual nutrition when you consume these beverages. Make sure you read fruit juice labels carefully! Turn over on the back of the jar or bottle, and look over the ingredient list - you may be surprised to see exactly where the fruit itself fits in!

Juicing Removes More Than Just Fiber

-- Don't juice yr fruits (or buy fruit juice); just eat the fruits as they come with the all-important fibre and nutrients bound to the fibre.
