All 27 ingredients could be reduced to one two syllable word:
Sugar (in these forms) in the quantities we consume them is the enemy! This one ingredient has been linked to cardiac disease, diabetes, cancer and obesity. The daily recommended limits for added sugar in one’s diet should not exceed 9 tsp. for men and 6 tsp. for women. On an annual basis this would equal approximately 34 pounds of sugar for men and 23 pounds for women. The average person consumes
156 lbs. of added sugar annually
according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA.)
Reducing this one ingredient in your diet could make a substantial impact on weight control, blood sugar levels, cardiac risk profiles and cancer risk profiles. So the next time you make a food choice, make certain that sugar (and its 26 other names) are not listed within the top five ingredients.
