Hidden sugar, yet another lie. For those of you who follow my blog, you realize that food manufacturers hide corn syrup under another name. As I was researching info for my radio program I stumbled across some scary facts. Food manufacturers are hiding sugar under a variety of names in their labels. While some of these terms are obvious, others are quite deceptive.
In case you’re not aware, the FDA decided that regulating the food industry was too daunting a task. Sadly they decided they did not have the resources to do it. So instead, they basically told food manufacturers to regulate themselves. Unfortunately, this allows food companies free reign to do whatever they want.
Other Names for Sugar
OK, so here they are. Following is a fairly comprehensive list of terms for hidden sugar. The food industry uses these terms to hide the fact that their products actually contain sugar: They include Barley malt, Corn sweetener, Crystalline fructose, Dextran, malt powder, Ethyl maltol, Fruit juice concentrate, Maltodextrin, Maltose (which is a sugar by the way), Molasses, Muscovado, Panela, Palm extract, Evaporated cane juice, Confectioner’s powder, and my favorite: Cane juice crystals. A list of liquid sugars include: Agave nectar, Carob syrup, Golden syrup, Honey, Malt syrup, oat syrup, Rice bran syrup, and Rice syrup.
Of course it’s not only important to limit your sugar intake. It’s also important that your body digests absorbs and uses sugar properly. This is one of the key goals of Enzyme Nutrition.
