Sugars, specifically fructose-containing sugars, are implicated in obesity and downstream cardiometabolic complications. Although sugar sweetened beverages providing excess energy consistently show increases in body weight and are associated with increased risk of obesity, it remains uncertain as to whether there is any relationship between other food sources of fructose-containing sugars and adiposity at different levels of energy control. This is of particular importance since a nutrient-specific focus of sugars may negatively implicate some food sources of fructose-containing sugars, such as fruit, which are associated with health-promoting benefits. This webinar will present the results of a recent systematic review and meta-analysis of controlled trials which was conducted to better understand the effect of different food sources of fructose-containing sugars at various levels of energy control on body weight and other measures of adiposity, using the Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) approach. The results from a series of systematic reviews and meta-analyses will also be reviewed to demonstrate the effects across cardiometabolic outcomes. The session will end with a discussion of the clinical implications of these results.
Upon completion of the webinar, participants should be able to:
- Define the role of food sources of fructose-containing sugars on adiposity;
- Understand the opportunity for more food-based approach to communication around sugars
