Hiden sugars……be aware and vigilant

20140104-075308.jpg

Do NOT simply rely on what the package states on the front.

Pick up the box and READ the ingredients.

As a rule of thumb, if you cannot pronounce the ingredient, stay away and put it back on the shelf.

There are HIDDEN sugars even though the NUTRITIONAL label states “0 CARBS”.

The companies are not forced to be so accurate!!! (not unlike the weather).

Do not ingest NutraSweet, Splenda, and Acelsulfame potassium.

Truvia, Stevia, Xylitol, and Erythritol or raw honey can be used in cooking, baking, or coffee and tea.
