    It can be really hard keeping to your sugar limit especially when you eat out often. Sugar is sneakily added into just about any foods. A standard portion of bubble tea contains a whopping 52.6g sugar, by the way.

    The Health Promotion Board recommends no more than eight to 11 teaspoons of added sugar daily, which works out to 40 to 55g. A 330ml serving of coke (330ml) has close to 7 teaspoons of sugar – more than half your daily sugar quota.

    2 / 8 Choose the healthier choice whenever possible

    We scoured the supermarket to find popular soft drinks with less than four teaspoons (20g) of sugar per 250ml serving. Sugar-free choices like Heaven & Earth Ayataka and Pokka Oolong Tea are not included in the list, but they’re definitely healthier choices if you don’t mind the bitterness of the teas.

    For those who want a sweet treat without busting their sugar limit, choose from these lower-sugar drinks.
