Impact:

  • Coming into effect May 2017 the Lucozade Energy range will meet this guideline.
  • For customers still using this product for glucose testing purposes, the product will no longer be fit for purpose. Alternative products are available from the Nutritional Supplements contract – please contact NHS Supply Chain buyer; Sam.Pearson@supplychain.nhs.uk for more information.
  • All Lucozade products will retain the same NPC (National Product Code) when the reduction in sugar takes place.
