“Shocking” Sugar Levels at Starbucks, Warns Charity


Is Starbucks selling coffee, or is it just glorified liquid candy? Action on Sugar analyzed 131 different hot drinks from different brands, and found “shocking” sugar levels in many of them.

The worst offender of all is Starbucks. Just one of their drinks contained 99 grams of sugar in a single serving, equivalent to 25 teaspoons of sugar (!) or more than three times the maximum daily recommended adult intake. It’s almost as much sugar as found in three cans of Coca-Cola.

Starbucks featured prominently in the report with three different drinks among worst sugar offenders found.

At this rate people may start calling them Sugarbucks… if they were honest they should perhaps draw a fat little mermaid on their cups.
