  • Frozen Drinks Have Far More Sugar Than You Might Think

March 28, 2022

High amounts of sugar significantly affect a person’s oral health and general health. Frozen drinks are more likely than anything else to cause someone to consume a week’s worth of sugar in just two minutes.

It turns out that a sugary drink can have unintended consequences. Drinking them may lead to dangerous weight gain, untreated tooth decay, and the risk of more severe health problems such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and stroke.

Key Takeaways:

  • ADA (Australian Dental Association) has found that frozen drinks have 49 teaspoons of sugar, but an average intake should be seven teaspoons per day.
  • This vast amount of sugar may cause oral and dental problems in people. And which leads to tooth decay, cavities and other issues.
  • Instead of drinking sugary frozen drinks, as shown in advertisements, people can drink more water to preserve their health.

“The number of teaspoons of sugar per serve in these drinks, which are a popular go-to beverage in summer, range from 13 and 18 in KFC’s Mountain Dew Freeze and Hungry Jack’s Frozen Fanta Sour Watermelon Spider Large respectively all the way up to 49 teaspoons in 7-Eleven’s Slurpee Sour Orange Mega.”
