A short quiz on how much we know about sugar in the diet.  It’s always a surprise when we realize how much sugar we actually consume every day.    For added sugars, look  on the ingredient labels.  In addition to sugar, look for high fructose corn syrup, corn sweetener, dextrose, brown sugar, fructose, lactose, fruit juice concentrate, honey, invert sugar, malt syrup, maltose, and molasses, glucose, and raw sugar.  Ingredients are listed by weight, so if sugar is listed as the first few ingredients, that product is loaded with it. The American Heart Association recommends that women consume no more than six teaspoons of added sugar every day. And men should consume less than nine teaspoons per day.
