Diabetes and Hiding Sugar in Plain Sight

Just a quick update for readers: Casual Kitchen's post on How Food Companies Hide Sugar in Plain Sight was republished today at A Sweet Life, which is one of the key resources for diabetics on the internet today.

My post talks about a new technique food companies are using these days to make their foods look like they contain less sugar than they really do. If you want to keep an eye on your sugar intake, this post is a must-read.

Thanks for pointing this out.

I like your rule of 3 guideline. Very helpful.

This is yet another reason to reclaim the kitchen. You know how much sugar you're using when you make dishes yourself.

Fiona, thanks--I feel that this post is an important one to get out there for people to see.

Charmian, thank you--I suppose it's partly common sense, but unless you know the names of the various sweetening agents, it's impossible to get a good sense if a food is hypersweetened or not. Thanks for reading!
