The Cider Link Blog posted a really great article recently on sugar, cider and the facts. Take the time to read it if you are interested in the sugar in your cider. There are some interesting facts in there. For example: Craft ciders contain no or some naturally occurring sugars, where as commercial large scale ciders contain quite a lot of processed sugar. How much? Well check out this graphic:
As the blog says "Everyone knows how much sugar fits into a teaspoon and this is our measure of choice. For the chart above they calculated the number of teaspoons per bottle. Koppaberg and Rekordelig come in 500ml bottles while most other ciders come in bottles between 330 to 370ml. To make this information a bit more meaningful they have included a 330ml can of regular Coke. Most people are aware of its level of sweetness and it can serve as a benchmark".
When we saw this graph we were surprised and we know that The Cider Blog were as well. Some of the fruit flavoured ciders are seriously high in the sugar stakes and above regular coke!
So where do we sit?
Brady's Lookout Cider has around 2/3rds of a teaspoon per 330ml. So that puts us at the bottom of the left hand side of the scale near New England Cider and Strongbow Low Carb.

Like the convict, we are on the run, so here you will find out more about what we are up to.
I purchased your cider last fortnight. Loved it so much, can I purchase two cases!
