Decoding Sugar Names

These ingredients are actually just sugar labeled as something else.

Sugar could be hiding in your food, disguised under a different name, and you might not even know it. A good rule of thumb is to keep an eye out for any kind of “syrup” or anything that ends in “-ose.” When in doubt, say “No” to the “-ose.” Take a look at this list for other sneaky sugar names.

  • D-Mannose
  • Evaporated cane juice

  • Maltose
