The impact on health of consumption of sugar-sweetened Non-Alcoholic Beverages is discussed in Australia and worldwide. We are witnessing the globalization of sugar consumption and related health problems; yet there are also striking exceptions to this apparently homogenous picture. For example, Japanese consume an even larger amount of NABs than Australians. But while in Australia these are mostly sugar-sweetened sodas, in Japan they include a range of non-sweet bottled teas, which are the default beverage option in schools, workplaces, and restaurants. Japan offers a compelling case to complicate our understanding of the global rise of obesity and its relationship with consumer behaviour. Combining the perspectives of nutritional science and cultural studies, the panel investigates how cultural factors influence the availability, perception and consumption of NABs in Japan and Australia, and reflect on the relationship between culture and nutrition health.
