Manufacturers often use various names to disguise added sugars in food labels. Here are some common aliases for sugar:

  1. Sucrose

  2. High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)

  3. Barley Malt

  4. Dextrose

  5. Maltose

  6. Rice Syrup

  7. Glucose

  8. Molasses

  9. Evaporated Cane Juice

  10. Agave Nectar

  11. Cane Sugar

  12. Fruit Juice Concentrate

These names can be confusing, so it's essential to read labels carefully to understand the sugar content in products.

The Gut-Brain Connection

Your gut profoundly impacts mental health through the gut-brain axis. A healthy gut can improve mood and reduce stress, showcasing the importance of gut health in overall well-being.
