About Us

The Sugar Research Advisory Service (SRAS) is a scientific information service for health professionals, academics and the media which aims to provide an evidence-based view of the role of sugars in nutrition and health.

Founded in 2002, the SRAS is funded through the Australian Sugar Industry Alliance and New Zealand Sugar. It is managed by a team of qualified nutrition professionals, including Accredited Practising Dietitians and Registered Dietitians from Australia and New Zealand.

The work of the SRAS is guided by a group of independent, scientific experts who are experienced in human nutrition and dietetics and food science. Working collaboratively with these individuals helps ensure a science-based approach to all SRAS activities.

The SRAS work includes, but is not limited to:

  • Maintaining an evidenced based website
  • Providing resource materials to health care professionals, academics and the media
  • Providing updates on new research
  • Participating and sponsorship of health care professional conferences
