The Sugar Reduction Summit @ Royal Society of Medicine
Dec 7 all-day
The Sugar Reduction Summit @ Royal Society of Medicine | London | United Kingdom

The Sugar Reduction Summit will return this year with a focus on next steps for sugar reduction policy and for the industry, and also on the importance and impact of sweetness itself, as opposed to just sugar. The event, at the Royal Society of Medicine in London, brings together industry, public health and the scientific and health and wellness communities from across the UK.

The amount of sugar being consumed has been subject to intense scrutiny in the past 24 months, with manufacturers and retailers under increasing pressure to introduce initiatives to curb consumption. Lobbyists are adding further pressure suggesting that it’s not just sugar which needs to be reduced, but sweetness – which has significant implications for industry. The Sugar Reduction Summit will examine the science and evidence to explore how important a factor sweetness is in health terms, if calories are managed, and the impact it has on appetite control, energy balance and, ultimately, obesity.
