There are hundreds of names for sugar. Who knew? I thought if a product listed ingredients like “cane sugar” or “beet sugar” I was eating sugar in the healthiest way possible. Apparently this isn’t true, as our bodies process any refined sugar the same way.
Here are some of the other names for sugar that you should be aware of when reading labels, although this list is not all-inclusive.
Brown rice syrup
High Fructose Corn Syrup
Hydrolyzed corn starch
Sweetened condensed milk
There are also other names for sugar substitutes that you should be aware of like: Acesulfame potassium, Aspartame, Neotame, Rebiana (stevia), Saccharin, and Sucralose.
