The 56 Names for Your #1 Enemy – Sugar!

The 56 Names for Your #1 Enemy – Sugar!

Arguably, added sugar may be the single most destructive ingredient to the human body. In the past century, sugar has gone from a conservatively used condiment to a main staple of the modern American diet. It is estimated to be in 80 percent of the food we eat. Nowadays sugars are hidden within processed foods, and most of us don’t even realize we are eating it because food manufacturers use clever words to disguise it or suggest it is a healthy ingredient. Thanks to an overabundance of sugar in the average American’s diet, we are a nation in the throes of a serious obesity epidemic. While the source of this epidemic is still under study, countless physicians, scientists, and diet/nutrition experts are all now pointing the finger at excess sugar intake as a key cause of our over inflated nation. Cause for even further concern is the fact that this obesity epidemic has catapulted the number of diet-induced health conditions that American suffer from today, including heart disease and diabetes.

Here’s a rundown of 56 common and clever names for sugar.

1. Sugar / Sucrose (Table Sugar)
It’s a naturally occurring carbohydrate found in many fruits and plants. Table sugar is obtained from either sugar cane or sugar beets. It is 50 percent glucose and 50 percent fructose, bound together.
Table sugar is typically found in candy, ice cream, cookies, cakes, chips, sodas, fruit juices, canned fruits, processed meats, breakfast cereals, and ketchup, to name a few.

2. High-Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)
High-fructose corn syrup is produced from corn starch via an industrial process and consists of both fructose and glucose. It is commonly used to make sodas, bread, cookies, candies, ice creams, cakes, cereal bars and many others. There are different types of HFCS, containing different amounts of fructose.
• HFCS 55: Common. 55 percent fructose and 45 percent glucose, similar to sucrose.
• HFCS 90: Contains 90 percent fructose.

3. Agave Syrup / Agave Nectar
Agave syrup contains about 70–90 percent fructose, and 10–30 percent glucose. Given the harmful health effects of excess fructose consumption, agave nectar may be even worse for metabolic health than regular sugar. It’s found in “health foods” like fruit bars, sweetened yogurt, and cereal bars.
