Re: Sugar

not sure why you're quoting natural sugar for the milk and then mentioning added sugar RDA.
1 litre is also nearly 2 pints, that's a fair amount for milk to consume in 1 day. really not sure what the point you're trying to make is.

Re: Sugar

I'm not suggesting you drink a litre of Milk a day, figure is for comparison.
RDA total sugar for adults is 90 grams per day

RDA is 7 teaspoons of free (Added) sugar is mentioned because until I found out, I thought there was not much Sugar in Milk !
