Sneaky Sneaky Sugar
Written by: Dr. Janine Mackenzie, ND
Food manufacturing companies know that consumers are looking for low sugar foods, but sugar is one of the components of foods that make us crave them, and essentially get ‘addicted’ to them. So often the nutritional label will not directly say “sugar” on the ingredients list.
Here are the different names that sugar can appear in food labels, I bet you will be shocked at how many foods contain these sneaky forms of sugar!
Brown sugar, confectioner’s sugar, powdered sugar
Cane juice/evaporated cane juice
Dextrose, or glucose, aka corn sugar
High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS)
