When sugar plays peekaboo, look out!


If you’re the type of person who’s finally broken-up your sugar love affair and are on the lookout for everything that’s “sugar-free”, then save this post for all your upcoming shopping trips.


  • Oftentimes, food manufacturers very smartly market their products as being sugar free in an effort to have them included in the healthy food aisles in your local store

  • When you see the words in the image above on your food labels, please know that they are nothing but alternate names for simple sugar and that they are in no way better than table sugar. In some cases they might be even worse for you!

  • Ketchup, sauces, salad dressings, canned foods, energy drinks, breakfast cereals, granola, energy bars, protein bars, and even so called “healthy snacks” need to be checked for these simple sugars before you indulge in them

  • Be warned! Your sugar free cookies or daily salad dressings could be adding an unexpectedly large amount of simple sugars in your daily meals
