Sugar hardly contributes to food dependence

Recent results of a study conducted by researchers at Maastricht University provided no scientific evidence to support the general assumption that sugar is addictive and leads to weight gain.

The Maastricht researchers presented their findings last week in the scientific journal Appetite.
