Nutritional facts are placed on most commercially available foods. And a great first step to becoming healthier is to become a “Label reader”. By paying attention to all those little numbers and figures on the backs of the packaging, you can find out how much sugar is in a serving. That could also help you determine how many servings to have.

To find out how much sugar is in a package of food, first check the “Nutrition Facts” panel on the package. Look for the word “Sugars” to see how much sugar is in the food per serving. To find the hidden forms of sugar, check the “Ingredients.” The use of trade, firm, or corporation names in this publica- tion (or page) is for the information and convenience of the reader. Such use does not constitute an official endorsement or approval by the U.S. Department of Agriculture or the Agricultural Research Service of any product or service to the exclusion of others that may be suitable.

Become a label reader and beware of sugar’s many names and also pay attention to portion sizes…
