Health Tip: Avoid Added Sugars

Here's how

(HealthDay News) -- Sugar is added to so many foods that a person could blow through the recommended daily level well before the end of the day.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests cutting back on added sugars by:

  • Learning the many label names that indicate added sugar, such as corn syrup, dextrose, corn sweetener or cane crystals.
  • Watching for potential "hidden" sources of added sugar, such as granola, whole-grain cereal, oatmeal, dried fruit, canned fruit and ketchup.
  • Sticking to just milk or water for a beverage.
  • Opting for plain yogurt over flavored yogurt, which could contain added sugar.
