Original text (page 1, Abstract):

NZ had the highest percentage of beverages with sugar added to them (52 %), while the UK had the lowest (9 %, P<0·001).

Original text (page 4, Results):

Volumetric nutritional content

Overall, NZ had the largest proportion of supermarket beverages that contained added sugar (52·3 %). This was significantly higher than Australia (42·2 %), Canada (42·8 %) and the UK (9·0%; P≤0·001).

Original text (page 2):

For each product, the following data were recorded from the product nutrition labels: brand name, product name, energy (kJ), protein, fat, carbohydrate and sugar content (g/100ml), ingredients list, manufacturer-declared serving size and number of servings per pack.

Original text (page 3):

Taxation categories were <5g/sugar/100ml (no tax), 5–8 sugar/100ml (18% tax per litre) and >8g sugar/100ml (24% tax per litre).

Original text (page 6, Figure 1 caption):

The UK sugar-tax levy proposes three categories: , <5g sugar/100ml (no tax); , 5–8g sugar/100ml (18% tax per litre); , >8g sugar/100ml (24% tax per litre).
