For each biscuit, the data collected included the product name, pack weight, serving size, total sugars per 100 g as well as per suggestive serving size. Results: The average sugar content in biscuits is 28.5 g/100 g. There was a large variation in the sugar content present between different biscuit products. Among the 40 products, 35 products showed a high sugar content when compared to the normal recommended dose for children.
