SugAR Poke

 

 

What is Added Sugar? 

Added sugar is present in 74% of all packaged foods sold in supermarkets. 

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), added sugars are “sugars and syrups that are added to foods or beverages when they are processed or prepared." 

 

Added sugars are much more deceptive, in that they are often not called as sugar in the ingredient list. Insidiously, they are quite often present in many of the products you thought did not contain any sugar.​

This is why we at EChO partnered with Pandora Augmented and Virtual Reality Technologies to create the SugAR Poke

ALL IN TEASPOONS

 

SugAR Poke tells you the number of teaspoons of added sugar contained in the entire product. Easy,-to-understand units, no calculations necessary!

SIMPLY USE YOUR SMARTPHONE

 

Look at a product through your phone's camera, and SugAR Poke will tell you instantly how much added sugar it contains!

The black label that pops in your screen as you watch this Kraft salad dressing tells you they are 32 teaspoons of added sugar in this bottle​.

GREEN & BLACK LABEL SYSTEM

 

A green label means no added sugar--helping you reduce health risks associated with hidden sugar,  according to current research. A black label means added sugar, with the number of teaspoons of added sugar indicated.

FIND THE GREEN LABELS

 

SugAR Poke empowers you to make healthier food choices by catching green labels and reducing your added sugar intake.
