Sugar By Any Other Name
The empty calories in sugar can be linked to the overweight and obesity rates. Sugar is in just about everything—soft drinks, breakfast cereal, canned fruits— and because of that, it’s no surprise that obesity and weight problems have reached epidemic proportions.
Sugar is linked to almost every known health problem; cancer, heart disease, diabetes, adrenal exhaustion, immune problems, candida, hyperactivity…the list goes on and on.
To avoid added sugars, become a food detective; read the ingredient lists on packaged foods and look for these other names that manufacturers use for sugar: cane juice, caramel, corn syrup, dextran, dextrose, fructose, fruit juice (and concentrate), glucose, high-fructose corn syrup, invert sugar, lactose, malt syrup, maltodextrin, maltose, mannitol, molasses, raw sugar, refiner’s syrup, sorbitol, sorghum syrup, sucrose, and yellow sugar.
