304 Names For Sugar

It’s hard to believe that something so simple and sweet could have such a range of complex names…!

The reason sugar has so many names is partly due to it’s origin, which varies. But I think it’s also a sneaky ploy by the food industry to add sugar into our foods to enhance taste without us being aware of exactly how much we’re consuming.

Naturally occurring sugars can be found in milk, fruit, sweeter vegetables and even beer. They are healthier to eat then added sugars because they include vitamins, minerals and fiber…but still spike your blood sugar (just not as fast).

Other origins of sugar come are from corn, beets, grapes, and sugar cane, which are processed before being added to foods. These “empty calories” have no nutritional benefit.

It’s important to note that on the Nutrition Facts panel of a food label, on the ingredient list, only added sugars are listed. A food may be high in sugar (like fruit) without having any added sugars listed on the ingredient list.

I came across this Facebook note called “All the 304 names of sugar so far project” from Jeremy Goodwin: https://www.facebook.com/notes/single-mans-kitchen/all-the-249-names-of-sugar-so-far-project/10150839799498198
