Hidden Sugars

The average American eats about 156 pounds of sugar a year – at least double what health experts recommend. In fact, the less sugar we eat, the better.

If you see any of the following ingredients listed on a food label, it’s considered an added sugar, regardless of its form.

  • Beet sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • Cane sugar
  • Confectioner’s sugar
  • Crystallized cane juice
  • Dextrose
  • Fructose
  • Evaporated cane juice
  • High-fructose corn syrup
  • Honey
  • Invert sugar
  • Maltodextrin (or dextrin)
  • Maple syrup
  • Molasses
  • Raw sugar
  • Sucrose (table sugar or white sugar)
  • Turbinado sugar

Tip: Scan ingredient lists for sugar’s many “disguises”. If you find two or more, especially near the beginning of the list, the product probably contains a significant amount of sugar.
