Tip: Watch for Sneaky Sugar
February 6, 2013 at 5:17 PM

              

Be a sugar sleuth and know how to ID sneaky names that food manufacturers use for added sugar. Words with “-oses” generally mean added sugars: sucrose, glucose, galactose, maltose, dextrose and fructose are all sugars.

    check your labels! 4 grams of sugar = 1 teaspoon. You'd be suprised how much sugar you are eating all day long.
