We know that we should not abuse it, but we have a hard time setting limits—our tips for eating less sugar and reducing your intake without frustration.
Play the aroma card
According to a recent study published by Danish researchers in the journal Foods, vanilla best reduces sugar to enhance its desserts. Banana, elderflower, honey, or raspberry also reinforce the perception of sweetness.
