"Sugar-Free" Foods Aren't What They Claim

Almost all nutrients have now had their fair share of time in the penalty box. We avoided fats for a long time before moving on to avoid salt and carbohydrates.

The typical American consumes 156 pounds of added sugar year, or three pounds each week. 

Consuming too much sugar can also lead to weight gain, heart disease, and diabetes.

Food producers are producing sugar-free packaged meals including puddings, biscuits, and sweets to keep up with demand. 

The only issue is that these items aren't as innocent-looking as they first appear, and their marketing claims are completely false.

foods that contain white sugar can also have the claim "sugar-free" on them. 

As an illustration, consider Sugar Free Oreos. Although the majority of their sweetness comes from sugar alcohols

Nevertheless, the food is still advertised as being sugar-free, and the nutrition label confirms this.
