STOP CALLING IT “HIDDEN” SUGAR!

Well, It saves me having to do it! Read thy labels or be like me and make it from scratch..Not everything takes forever to make…I spend as little time in the kitchen as I can…It is sooooo hot here and you try using dried goods with a fan blowing…lol
And sometimes that wording is so damned small and I know that it is not just because I am getting on in years …They don’t want you to READ IT!
But I would like you to read this and follow me on how to cook with minimum effort and produce tasty, good food…No frills and no nasties and then tell me you didn’t enjoy it…Everyone comes back for more in this house ๐Ÿ™‚

All About Healthy Choices

Publication9CROPPED400The World Health Organization (WHO) provided a document supplied by the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) entitled, โ€œConsumption of Added Sugars Among U.S. Adults, 2005โ€“2010.โ€ In this document, it was determined that the maximum daily consumption of added sugar should not exceed:

25 grams or 6 teaspoons per day.

(REFERENCE: Consumption of Added Sugars Among U.S. Adults, 2005โ€“2010)

As of 2014, The American Heart Association claimed the average American consumed approximately

20 teaspoons of sugar daily.

(REFERENCE: American Heart Association: Daily Sugar Consumption as of 2014)

Added sugar in our foods certainly goes by many different names including: white sugar, brown sugar, raw sugar, corn syrup, corn syrup solids, high fructose corn syrup, malt syrup, maple syrup, pancake syrup, fructose sweetener, liquid fructose, honey, molasses, anhydrous dextrose, crystal dextrose, and dextrin. This is where the โ€œHIDDEN NAMEโ€ originated!

    I have been baking at home since last one year & have noticed the difference between store bought n home made stuff. Sugar is hidden in most of the produce but yes, reading labels & finding out what suits us is upto us. Make a healthier choice & stick to preservative free food is my motto. Nice share.

      Yes I agree it is much better to bake at home where you can ..It saves money and you often get more for your maoney and you know exactly what is in it…Nothing better…I also love the feeling of satisfaction when you make something and you of course get the lovely cooking smells ๐Ÿ™‚
