It lurks in bread, tomato sauce, salad dressings, pasta sauces and a multitude of other foods. It’s sugar and it’s sneaky! If you’re trying to cut more of this nutritionally vacant substance out of your diet, you need to know some of its many aliases.
If you’re not an avid label reader, it’s a good idea to become one. Then you’ll understand if sugar is impersonating another ingredient, including high fructose corn syrup, dextrose, fructose, glucose, sucrose, maltodextrin and many others.
In addition to reading the ingredients on a food label, it’s also important to see how many grams of sugar are in a single serving. You might be surprised to discover that foods that aren’t considered to be sweet treats can be relatively high in this sticky substance. Slash sugar from your diet and get regular preventative dental checkups to smile brilliantly!
