43.2g sugar per 375ml!!
12 of these is more than half a kilo of sugar.
Who cares about sugar content when you decided to have soft drinks
Fair point but in a sense every taxpayer in this country who pays for medicare for the many illnesses over consumption of sugar causes should care.
43.2g sugar isn't one or two teaspoons like most people have in their tea/coffee. It's more than 10 teaspoons of sugar. It's 1.5x the daily sugar RDI - in a single drink.
The man is 100% correct.
It's 1.5x the daily sugar RDI - in a single drink.
It's 1.5x the daily sugar RDI - in a single drink.
That's not what it says on the nutritional information on the bottle. It apparently contains 48% of your RDI of sugar in one bottle.
@Gnostikos: I wonder where in the world they allow for 100g sugar per day, that that label wouldn't be false advertising?
In the UK for instance the RDI of sugar is 30g per day (from the UK National Health Service):
@studentl0an: 'Straya mate. 30 grams of sugar is soft. 100 grams a day minimum or go home.
@Gnostikos: If you ain't pissin straight glucose then are you really alive?
@studentl0an: Farkin' oath. My blood is 70% Golden Syrup. "For we are insulin resistant and have sweet peeeeeee…."
This tends to be a characteristic and problem AFAIC with Bundaberg soft drinks across the range IME. As numerous others have noted in comments on Amazon.au's site of the various flavours, almost perfect,…were their finish on the palate not spoiled by an overwhelming sweetness attributable to that volume of sugar. That said, until/unless it negatively impacts sales on a significant scale -including international, sadly I can't foresee BBD altering that.
As for the flippancy of the 'who cares' Noddys, the wave of type 2 diabetes that is going to afflict that Mcgeneration as they age is going to come as a shock when they discover the degenerative disease it represents is more than just a word nor applicable only to the ubiquitous someone else.
Although the BBD sparkling range is a relatively recent phenomenon launched just over a decade ago, like contemporary Coca Cola which is now just fizzy brown sugar water instead of the not near as sweet dominant cola flavoured drink it was back then, I've noticed the alteration in Bundaberg's Ginger Beer flavour on the palate since the 1960s too. It's now a lot less gingery, and a whole lot Mcsweeter like the rest of their range. One can only surmise the sweetness is a consequence of their market testing results conducted within their particular target demographic.
Not only health wise, but importantly personal taste wise I wish they contained a third of the sugar content they do, or less, appreciating OMMV.
11.5% per 100ml
Bargain on diabetes.
Sports Drinks like Gatorade have 6g sugar per 100ml. 1/2 of this.
I think, you should stop drinking any drinks with sugar in it.
TBH, Sugarfree drinks are worst than sugar drinks
@sonu1111: Depends on the sweetener. The popular ones of the past - sucralose and aspartame are borderline poison but natural plant extracts like stevia + monkfruit and sugar alcohols such as erithritol are looking to be good stuff.
@studentl0an: Totally agree with plant extracts.
For anything people drink or eat with sugar substitute, body produces Insulin same way as for sugar. As body can't find actual sugar in body to break them so Insulin stays in body and people will find that they crave for sugar soon (because of Insulin).
I still suggest people to consume less sugar than replacing it.
@studentl0an: Sugar is plant extract. Isn’t it??
@freakunow: Not in the context of non-sugar sweeteners. It is sugar.
does somehow the % increase with more volume?
You always compare products per 100gms or 100ml.
Check sugar in 100gms of Skittles or M&Ms
That's why I only bought a dozen.
jebus, thats more then coke…..
That's cane sugar, all natural, no worries mate 😂
I bought it but will water down with soda water. Its way too much sugar.
I planned to water mine down with Malibu, but extra soda water is probably a good idea, too 😉
Yes, and when you buy a box of VBs or Crowns or some other beers that's almost 100% of alcohol, I don't understand your point?
Regular beer tends to have around ~10g sugar per 375ml (in the form of carbs, not free sugar - there's no free sugar in beer) which is 4x less than this (which is all free sugar anyway so it's a bad comparison for you to bring up).
Be mindful of what you're putting into your body, that's my point.
I meant it as a metaphor. Sugar is bad for you same for alcohol. A box or 12 bottles equates to half a kilo of sugar, a box of beers or 24 bottles equates to 96% of alcohol. I'm pretty sure the people who are interested in buying doesn't really care. When you combine the drinks the sugar or alcohol contents becomes lethal, so what else is new? Doubtful they're going to drink it all in one go.
Yeah except sugar is much worse for you than alcohol so I don't get your point
Great if you like the taste of sunscreen.
“Failed to add an item to cart” is the message I get…. Perhaps Ozbargained already?
Blinked and missed it - went to look at nutritional info and 30sec later, “product is currently unavailable”
I've never seen a product comeback into stock so much.
It's back. Just ordered one
You can always cancel an ordered before it's marked as dispatched. 😃
her: I love a man who thinks ahead
him: I already drank a litre of pineapple juice
Just leaving this here for context for some:
The last 2 comments on the post :p
Yeah in case any nuns or monks are browsing OzBargain from their convent/monastery.
Does it stay the same price after 6 months when I select S&S?
No the price fluctuates
how do people find these cheap prices on amazon ?
You can get price alerts sent to your email with this site https://au.camelcamelcamel.com/
Otherwise just by browsing Amazon itself.
they will send a general email, highlighting all the bargain price drops or you have to save a specific item for price drop alert ?
The latter. And you can specify a price you want to be alerted at. So for example if you set an alert for an item at $10 and it’s currently $15, you’d only get an email if drops to $10 or under.
@CompulsiveOzB: Just created account but its not importing my wishlist.
Flirt with Alexa
