Don’t Be Fooled By These Ingredients That Are Actually Sugar

A number of ingredients in food are actually sugar.

Some people just keep an eye out for sugar, or perhaps know that high fructose corn syrup is another form of sugar.

But there are a number of other ingredients that those watching their health should know about.

This includes many ingredients ending with “-ose” or “-ol,” noted the Consumerist.

That includes fructose, dextrose, maltose, sucrose, xylose, and glucose.

“Not all sugars are created equal, some of these are sugar alcohols which are not absorbed as fully by the body as regular sugar. It all depends on how an item falls on the glycemic index,” the blog said.

Molasses is another type of sugar. It’s often found in cereal and other baked goods, notes the video.

Watch out for evaporated cane juice as well. It has the nutritional equivalent of white sugar.
