Can we get used to eating less sugar?

We eat far too much sugar, for example in the form of sweetened drinks, yogurt and cake. However, do we even like these foods if they no longer have the same high sugar content? Researchers from Department of Food Science at Aarhus University have looked into this in a comprehensive literature survey.
