The average global consumer purchased 34g of sugar per capita per day in 2014 from packaged food and beverages, with the US topping the countries list at 126g – 50g of this from soft drinks alone. Assuming the sugar content of food and beverage products stays the same and based on forecast volume sales, the world will be buying 2g more sugar per capita a day by 2019, with emerging markets driving this growth.
