Podcast: Sugar: A Trick or a Treat?

Is sugar, that sweet stuff, tricking us?………

Sugar by any other name is, sugar. Are you reading your labels? If you do, you might notice so many different names for the sweet stuff, it makes you dizzy! Here is a partial list:  buttered syrup, cane-juice crystals, cane sugar, corn syrup, dextran, dextrose, ethyl maltol, fructose, fruit juice concentrate, glucose, high-fructose corn syrup, lactose, maltodextrin, sorbitol, sucrose, or organic evaporated cane juice.

Listen in and learn more how you can change your health, and the world we live in.
