In today’s world of convenience food, everywhere we turn we are being overloaded with sugar. Call it what you like…sugar, agave, brown rice syrup, dextrose, honey, molasses, cane syrup. Sugar by any other name is just that—– SUGAR.
Here is a list of some of the different names sugar can be hiding under in your products:
Anything ending in “ose” (dextrose, fructose, lactose, maltose, sucrose)
Brown rice syrup
Corn syrup solids
Fruit juice concentrate
High fructose corn syrup
Sugar (brown, white, white granulated in the raw, powdered)
Make sure you are reading your food labels to see if these are being added and if they are see if you can make a swap to cut these out or lessen the amount of sugar you are getting.
