What is sugar? Does it differ from other types of sugars? How is sugar broken down and used by the body?

The Canadian Sugar Institute Nutrition Information Service is excited to present two new digital resources, which review the basics of sugar metabolism and provide answers to frequently asked questions. They are available in both English and French and can be added to your digital communications, shared through social media, or used as offline educational resources.

  • Whiteboard video – Follow the journey of a sucrose molecule from food, through digestion, to energy!
  • Infographic  – Find answers to frequently asked questions about sources of sugar, functional roles of sugar added to foods, and sugar as a source of energy for the body.

Do you receive other consumer questions about sugar? Our redesigned collection of  20 “Did You Know?” facts  might just have the answers, and they are formatted especially for social sharing!
