The 'Sugar Smart' App Helps Track Sugar In Your Foods

Finding out how much sugar lurks in your morning cereal or yogurt cup just got easier with Sugar Smart, a new app developed by Public Health England.

Meant to combat the rising trend of diabetes the app allows consumers to scan the barcodes of more than 75,000 products including plain milks, canned foods, as well as fruits and vegetables, according to Pharma Times.

One quick scan immediately reveals sugar content displayed in grams and cubes. The Sugar Smart app also provides information on the maximum recommended daily amount of sugar for children and adults to help health-conscious foodies make better choices.
