So, what is ådded sugars?

Added sugars refer to any type of sugar or sweetener that is added to food during processing or preparation. These sugars are not naturally present in the food and are often used to enhance flavor or extend shelf life. Examples of added sugars include white sugar, brown sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, honey, and maple syrup. Consuming too much added sugar can lead to health problems such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. It is important to monitor your intake of added sugars and choose whole foods that are naturally sweetened with fruits or vegetables instead.
