The Not So Sweet Side Of Sugar
"Fat Free" comes at a cost
When you remove fat from any food product you have a big problem. It tastes terrible. So what do companies do to make their product taste better? They double the sugar. Some foods labelled "fat free" actually contain twice as much sugar the the original full fat version.
Sugar in disguise
Sugar has many names in order for it to be able to hide in food. For example, it can be called "high fructose corn", "fructose", "turbinado sugar", "sorbitol", "raw sugar", and some other variations as well. All these hidden sugars are processed in the exact same way. Sugar can hide itself in lots of foods including: spaghetti sauce, salad dressing, orange juice, cereal and many more.
