Food companies have gotten very smart and come up with some creative names for sugar so we don’t know whether we are eating refined sugar or not. This is why it is so important to become a food detective and read ingredients. Take this list to your pantry and see if you can find some foods you didn’t realize had so much sugar (hint: check the crackers and your protein bars first).
Black Strap Molasses
Cane Juice Crystals
Corn Syrup solids
Fruit Juice Concentrate
High-Fructose Corn Syrup
Locust Bean Gum
Please note that sugar substitutes, like Sweet‘N Low, Splenda, Equal, have the same effects on blood sugar and contain toxins as well, so are to be avoided.
