The Continuing Survey of Food Intakes by Individuals (CFSII) aged two years and over is also based on 24-hour recall data but includes trisaccharides
and higher saccharides in their estimate of added sugars, so the results are not directly comparable with the current study, which has estimated the intake of added sugars based on monosaccharides and disaccharides.
