Honesty in advertising has not been very complete.
During packaging and/or processing, sugars in varying forms are added but never listed. Remember, ingredients are listed in order of concentration, so if you read any type sugar in the first 3 ingredients – look elsewhere. Examples of types of sugars include:
- brown sugar
- high fructose corn syrup
- invert sugar
- maltose sugar
- concentrated fruit juice
These misleading inconsistencies in food labeling are finally being addressed. Start July 26, 2018 major companies compliance with the new FDA standards is required, with smaller companies complying a year later.
