Sugar and its Relatives

When reading food labels, sugar is sugar, right?  No.  Sugar has lots of relatives that still are recognized by our body as sugar.  Sugar comes in many forms so make sure to read nutritional labels carefully.  The first ingredient listed is the largest.  These terms are all the same as sugar:  sucrose, dextrose, maltose, brown sugar, honey, malt, fruit juice, fruit juice concentrate, maple syrup, rice syrup, and brown ride syrup.  If is ends in “ose”, think sugar.
