30 October 2013, The Telegraph -- "Liberal Democrat MP Tessa Munt says a debate over the amount of sugar in jam could herald "the end of the British breakfast as we know it"
Tessa Munt said the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) should not adopt new rules which will allow jam producers to call their fruit spreads jam even if they are only 50% sugar. ...She told MPs in a Westminster Hall debate that rules dating back to research in the 1920s meant that jam had to be at least 60% sugar to retain its gel-like quality.
Defra Minister George Eustice said "one impetus" for the change was an European Union "jam directive". He said it permitted, but did not require, a sugar level lower than 60% to be set. ..."
