Read Nutrition Labels to Cut Down on Sugar

By and Tuesday, 28 April 2020 11:35 AM Current | Bio | Archive

New York Yankee Yogi Berra was a funny and talented Hall of Fame player, and possibly kindest catcher ever. He once declared: "Always go to other people's funerals; otherwise they won't go to yours."

He also said: "Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good, too."

Genuine sweetness makes the world a better place for everyone. Unfortunately, if you're coming in contact with sweetened foods and drinks, there's nothing genuine about some of their labeling. And that doesn't make the world a better, or healthier, place.

A study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics found many food labels that declare "a touch of sweetness" are downright deceptive.

For instance, some 20-ounce flavored waters pack 27 or more grams of added sugar. That's about 27 more grams than you need in a day.

And juices with labels declaring "low sugar" often contain more sugar than juices with no such label claims.

Packaged goods are also guilty of sweet talk. Last October, Kellogg's settled a lawsuit alleging the company falsely advertised some cereals as healthy and nutritious when they were loaded with sugar. It cost the company $20 million.

Unfortunately, the average American consumes around 71 grams of added sugar daily, and that’s a huge risk for obesity, diabetes, depression, and heart disease.

So start eliminating added sugars from your diet. Step one: Read the nutrition label on the back of products, not just the pretty label on the front.
