The Food and Drug Administration has come out with some of the biggest changes in years to nutrition labeling for food packaging. One of the boldest changes for consumer health is making the sugar industry squeal. Added sugars are now listed separately from total sugars in food.

Exactly what are added sugars? Any sugars that are not naturally-occurring in the food itself, and have been added later by the manufacturer. Some foods, such as fruit and milk, contain natural sugars. You might be surprised, however, by the unexpected places where sugars have been added. They show up in pasta sauces, salsas, prepared meals, yogurt, and other foods we don’t think of as sweet. According to a detailed survey cited in the New York Times, 60 percent of packaged foods and drinks purchased in American grocery stores include some form of added sugar.

Why are added sugars important? To cite the FDA, “scientific data shows that it is difficult to meet nutrient needs while staying within calorie limits if you consume more than 10 percent of your total daily calories from added sugar.” Excessive sugar intake of added sugars is linked to a wide variety of illnesses and negative effects on metabolic and cardiovascular health.

Added sugars haven’t always been easy to find on the nutritional label. Sugar goes by other names. Here’s a list that comes to us from the New York Times article:
