Diabetes

By January 2020, consumers will see a different nutrition label on foods when the FDA’s new rules take effect for most packaged foods. In addition to larger type for serving sizes and calories, a new line item for “added sugar” will appear under the carbohydrate category. Added sugars include sugars that are added during processing as well as sugars that come from concentrated fruit juice. Fruit juice concentrates are usually made from apple or white grape juice and there is nothing healthy about them. The original fruits are healthy, but when you strip them of water, fiber and nutrients, the remaining fruit juice concentrate is nothing more than a healthier sounding form of sugar.
