Sugar from milk and fruit sources, for instance, should not exceed 10% of total kcalories. Concentrated refined sugars (e.g., table sugar) should be limited as much as possible. The objective is to look for other names on food packaging that are sugars, including corn syrup, dextrose, sucrose, corn sweeteners, glucose, fructose, lactose, honey, molasses, maple sugar, maple syrup, sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, maltose, or anything with ‘sugar’ inrepparttar 139503 name, e.g., confectioner’s sugar, or invert sugar.

The next step would be to reduce or replace simple sugars with these suggestions:

Reduce sugar in recipes. Even with a vast reduction of up to 20% or more, many recipes tasterepparttar 139504 same. With some recipes halfrepparttar 139505 sugar can be substituted with an equal portion of a sweet spice, such as cinnamon, fennel, cardamom, allspice, anise, and ginger.

Many breakfast cereals contain high percentages of sugar. Look for those that do not have added sugar and toprepparttar 139506 cereal with fruit if necessary and preferred.

Substitute fruit juices for fruit drinks, soft drinks, punches, and other liquids that contain high amounts of sugar.

If substituting sugars, be aware that there are two types of sweeteners or sugar substitutes. The first type is a class of nutritive sweeteners that absorb slower than sucrose, they do not promote dental caries, and they do contain kcalories. The second is a class of artificial sweeteners that do not contain kcalories, and they are safe for use for diabetics and calorie reduced diets.

Using sugar substitutes (especially artificial sweeteners) should not give people license to consume large amounts of these products simply because they are low in kcalories. They also tend to be low in other nutrient values and it is unclear what medical conditions can arise from over-consumption. Hence, these products should not be a substitute for fresh fruits, vegetables, or other foods. However, if it is difficult to make it throughrepparttar 139507 day without a pudding, for example, choose one made with skim milk and a sweetener than a high-fat, high-sugar type.
