Sugar, By Any Other Name...
Everyone knows the quote from Shakespeare; "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet ..."
Well, sugar by any other name is still sugar.
I've written, several times, about how the food companies go to great length to hide ingredients in their food labels while still conforming with legal requirements. But I'm not sure most people realize just how far they push the envelope.
So here is a list of 81 ingredients found on food labels that all mean basically the same thing- Sugar.
Highlighted names I thought were particularly inventive. Some I even gave a gold star (*)
Cane juice solids *
Cane juice crystals*
Corn syrup solids*
Dehydrated cane juice* (Love these next 4-Know what you get when evaporate cane juice? Sugar.)
Evaporated cane juice*
Evaporated cane syrup*
Evaporated sugar cane*
Fruit juice crystals
Fruit juice concentrate
Golden sugar ( if it's "golden" syrup it must be ok)
High fructose corn syrup
Invert sugar (WTH is inverted?)
King's syrup* (This must be really special!)
Then we have the sugar alcohols:
Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate
