Added sugars

As the name suggests, added sugars are sugars added during the processing or preparation of food. Naturally occurring sugars such as those in fruit or milk are not considered as added sugars.

How do we consume excess added sugars?

  • candy
  • cakes
  • cookies and brownies
  • pies and cobblers
  • sweet rolls, pastries, and donuts
  • ice cream and dairy desserts
  • sugars, jams, syrups, and sweet toppings

How to reduce added sugar intake?

  • drinking water, unsweetened tea or espresso, or other sans calorie refreshments rather than soft drinks or other improved drinks
  • picking refreshments, for example, low-fat or sans fat milk and 100% natural product squeeze, that will support Dairy Gathering and Organic product Gathering admission to meet suggestions
  • picking organic product as a normally sweet treat or sweet nibble rather than nutrients with included sugars
  • making sweet pastries and tidbits, for example, treats, cakes, pies, and frozen yogurt, an every so often treat and picking a little bit when you appreciate them
  • picking bundled nutrients that have less or no additional sugars, for example, plain yogurt, unsweetened fruit purée, or solidified organic product with no additional sugar or syrup
