There is increasing concern that high intakes of added sugar have deleterious effects on health. This rests mainly on studies that have assessed the relationships between sugar-sweetened beverages and disease-related risk markers and outcomes. The role of sugars in other foods, the daily dose of sugars associated with adverse effects, the interactions between dietary sugar content and total energy intake remains poorly documented.
The purpose of this Special Issue devoted to “Consumption of Sugars, Sugary Foods, and Sugary Beverages in Relation to Disease Risk” is, therefore, to gather recent reviews, meta-analyses, and original reports addressing
- Methodological issues in assessing sugar intake from various food groups
- Consumption levels of various sugar-containing foods in the population
- Relationships between total-, added- or free sugars intake from various food groups and health-related outcomes (observational cohort studies and randomized controlled trials)
- Mechanisms linking consumption and health outcomes according to sugar type, food group, food matrix, and physical form of nutrients
- Relationship between intake of sugar-containing foods on the one hand, and total energy intake and physical activity on the other hand
- Concept of nutritional quality of sugar-containing foods
- Alternatives to dietary sugars for a healthy nutrition
