I am an avid vegetarian and I love my beans, but although I love the taste of baked beans, I try to refrain from them because, as any vegetarian knows, there are 16 teaspoons of sugar in the average size tin quite simply because sugar is cheaper than beans, so they sell you sugar as beans.

The merit of eating beans is unquestionable, but sugar is essentially a poison as it does nothing but rot your teeth.

Robert has pointed out the problem to our local MP, but as yet has not got a result. Keep trying, Robert.
