It’s yesterday’s news that you can eat healthier by avoiding foods full of unnecessary sugars, and that sugars appear on labels under different names, but you might be surprised to see just how many different guises sugar and sugar-related substances can assume.
Inside, 30 of them.
Corn syrup, or corn syrup solids
Dehydrated cane juice
Fruit juice concentrate
High-fructose corn syrup
Sorghum or sorghum syrup
Things ending in “ose” or “ol” are probably sugars.
Not all sugars are created equal, some of these are sugar alcohols which are not absorbed as fully by the body as regular sugar. It all depends on how an item falls on the glycemic index.
