How much sugar, really?

Seems that food manufacturers will be changing the way they present sugar, if new regulations for Health Canada are approved.

Combined Sugar Ingredients

The proposed regulations will call for sugars of all kinds to be combined in the ingredient list. So a product that has sugars(honey, molasses, evaporated cane juice, sugar) will not list them separately, but together on a single line. That means the total amount of sugar will determine the sequence of ingredients.

This is a good move for health conscious people.

When we see the first ingredient is the sugars, we may change our decision. Separate sugars could cause the individual ingredients to drop down in the list, because they individually make up a small part of the whole. But when they get combined together, sugar may well become the first ingredient.

SugarLike has less sugar

These products can be formulated with SugarLike Encapsulated Sweeteners to lower or even eliminate the added sugar in the product. And the consumer will not give up any taste. Because SugarLike tastes better than or as good as sugar.
