Revealed: The horrifying amounts of sugar in Coca Cola, Lucozade and Frij milkshakes will shock you


A campaign from health officials in Liverpool is seeking to publicise the terrifying amount of sugar in popular soft drinks.
It names, for the first time, how many sugar cubes are in brands like Lucozade, Coca Cola and Frij milkshakes.

According to Public Health Liverpool, a 500ml bottle of Lucozade contains 15.5 cubes of sugar. That translates to roughly 62g. The recommended daily intake for a normal weight adult is 25g, according to the World Health Organisation.

If you prefer Coca Cola then you'll be consuming 13.5 cubes of sugar (54g) per 500ml and downing a 471ml bottle of Frij chocolate milkshake provides 12.7 cubes (50.8g).

The full list of sugary drinks are:

  • Lucozade (500ml) - 15.5 cubes
  • Coca Cola (500ml) - 13.5 cubes
  • Frijj chocolate milkshake (471ml) - 12.7 cubes
  • Capri-Sun (330ml) - 8.25 cubes
  • Tropicana orange juice (330ml) - 7.5 cubes
  • Ribena (288ml) - 7.25 cubes
  • Volvic flavoured water (500ml) - 5.75 cubes
  • Tap water - 0 cubes
