"We don't really see

calories in drinks,

but they all add up.

Reduction of sugar

content in chocolate

milk could help to

reduce sugar intake

while allowing children

to get the calcium that

their bones need. - Dr

Bartosz Buczkowski

Researchers at

Manchester

Metropolitan University

set out to find a

suitable low sugar

drink for children to have in schools after

physical activity instead of high sugar

sports drinks. Milk proved to be an

effective post-exercise rehydration drink,

with chocolate-flavoured milk being even

more popular with the 56 schoolchildren,

aged four to 10, who were questioned as

part of the study.

Lead researcher Dr Bartosz

Buczkowski, Senior Lecturer in Nutrition

at Manchester Metropolitan, comments

on the results, explaining that, "Milk and

milk products are important for calcium

intake, which in turn is important for

healthy bones in growing children. Due to

sugar and fat content, full sugar flavoured

milks are seen as 'unfavourable'. We

wanted to establish whether chocolateflavoured

milk with reduced sugar content

was as acceptable to schoolchildren as

chocolate-flavoured milk with standard

sugar content. We reduced sugar

content by 30%, 40% and even 100%

and replaced sweetness lost with another

natural sweetener, asking the children to

test each one and rate what they thought

A LOTTA BOTTLE

New research shows

less-sweet milk preferred

of the taste and sweetness."

The findings, published in the

Proceedings of the Nutrition Society,

revealed unexpected results. The

researchers found that chocolateflavoured

milk with 30% less sugar was

even more acceptable to children than

the chocolate milk with standard sugar

content. The team believe that the

combination of the sugar and sweetener

working together resulted in a bettertasting product,

making it more popular

with the schoolchildren.

Past studies have focused on the

benefits of milk and looking specifically

at what it can do for athletes postworkout, exploring its rehydrating

and

restorative factors, as well as the low cost

in comparison to sports drinks.

Buczkowski adds, "The results of this

study are important because children

might prefer chocolate milk to plain milk

but sugar content in chocolate milk

and other drinks can be problematic as

consumption of high quantities of sugar

is not great for dental health. Excessive

sugar content is also something to be

considered when it comes to children's

consumption too, as it can lead to

increased body weight, but it's not always

considered. We don't really see calories

in drinks, but they all add up. Reduction

of sugar content in chocolate milk could

help to reduce sugar intake whilst allowing

children to get the calcium that their

bones need."
