To Your Health



We love sweets and many forms of sugar are added to processed products. There is no %DV as there is no established requirement for sugars.

Sugars come in many forms - sucrose, fructose, lactose, glucose, maltose. The label gives the total metric amount without any %DV, but reading the list of ingredients is helpful. We were startled to see that Kellogg's "Original" Corn Flakes, not the frosted product, listed (in order of quantity, highest to lowest): Milled corn, sugar, malt flavoring, high fructose corn syrup, alt. This product provides 2 grams of sugar.

It is important to remember that t he label gives you the amount per serving.
