Sugar has become the enemy! But that’s not entirely true. Read here to see how sugar is absolutely necessary to run your brain and body.
The big concern is sugar that is being added to our food during the manufacturing process. Minimizing and eliminating high fructose corn syrup is a great start. This is human-made highly processed sugar that pretty much has no redeeming health benefits.
But food manufacturers sneak added sugar into our food by using all sorts of different names. Remember: added sugar by another name….is still sugar!
You absolutely need sugar; the key is to make sure you aren’t going over your daily sugar limit.
Here is the list of sugar in disguise to look out for:
– agave syrup
– brown sugar
– corn sweetener
– corn syrup
– sugar molecules ending in “ose” (dextrose, fructose, glucose, lactose, maltose, sucrose)
– high fructose corn syrup
– fruit juice concentrate
– invert sugar
– malt sugar
– raw sugar
