The Glycemic Index

A Glossary of Hidden Sugar

Everybody loves sugar. From the dawn of our species, human beings have sought out sugar hits in the form of honey and sweet fruits, scaling trees and risking their lives for just a taste of the good stuff. 

 

Most people know that limiting the amount of sugary foods we consume is a good thing to do. We’re warned of rotting teeth, sugar rushes and obesity. However, avoiding sugar in today’s world is easier said than done. In the USA, we consume a lot of highly processed foods, most of which contain some kind of sugar. We also consume many refined carbohydrates, which also turn to sugar in our blood. 

 

This glossary is designed to help you navigate the hidden sugar landscape.

The recommended daily limit for sugar intake in any form is 24g per day. However, according to the National Cancer Institute, adult American men currently take in an average of 24 teaspoons of added sugar per day–about 96g–four times the recommended daily limit.
