French sugar consumption

How do the French consume sugar? What is the relationship of the product to health? Which brands are the most popular? Here are the answers in figures thanks to the YouGov institute which questioned a panel of 1014 people at the beginning of December.
36% of French people consume sugar every day, 21% several times a week.
60% use it in pastries, 40% in dairy products and 38% in coffee. Habits have evolved as fewer French people used it in recipes five years ago (55% in 2017) but 46% sweetened their coffee.
37% of French people feel that they consume too much sugar, especially those aged 35-44 (at 46%).
75% consider this consumption to be harmful to their health, with 20% believing it to be the main cause of obesity.
46% do not believe in the benefits of sugar substitutes, they were 37% in 2017.
86% of French people know the Daddy brand, making it the most popular signature ahead of Béghin-Say (81%) and Saint Louis (80%). Awareness of Daddy has risen by 9 points in five years. Its progression is even stronger among 18-24 year olds: 63% said they were familiar with it in 2017 compared to 81% in 2021.
