With so many companies being condemned for false labeling, how are we supposed to know EXACTLY what we are eating? Which is better? “no added sugar” or “reduced in sugar”? With hundreds of variations, it is very difficult to decipher these days. Ryan Lowery discusses a study done on Canadian regulations governing sugar claims.
Consumers believe products with “no added sugar” claims are healthier and lower in calories. But is there evidence to support this belief? In a new study published in Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism, researchers at the University of Toronto report that prepackaged food and beverages labelled with claims such as “no added sugar” or “reduced in sugar” can have lower sugar levels than products without sugar claims but may not have notable reductions in calories and some can contain amounts of sugar considered in “excess” by the World Health Organization.
