HS tests out ready-made smoothie brands: One tenth of the content is sugar
If you want a nutritional smoothie, leave the ready-made drinks on the shelf at the store. The ready-made smoothies found at the store may sound like a healthy snack, but the reality is far from that. The smoothies tested by Helsingin Sanomat tasted more like sugar than anything else. On average, approximately one tenth of the contents of the drinks was sugar. For example, although it passed the taste test, the Brämhults 3.8 deciliter smoothie bottle contained approximately 40 grams of sugar.
