Haven’t drank coffee in 3 days since I don’t like almond milk or sugar substitute. Feeling pretty energetic!!

Are there limitations on regulations when a product lists “no added sugar” like with other terms we see? ie: “organic” and “natural”.

  • annefood Great question @ingalls ! Supposedly no added sugar on a label means no honey, molasses, high-fructose corn syrup, malt syrup or cane syrup. There are many other sugars that therefore seemingly...
  • ingalls Thanks @annefood! The internet searches get overwhelming sometimes. ;-)

Any tips for full or half pass check-ins? I had a salad with the only sugar I could find was in the dressing (listed eighth).

  • DietID_TeamDietitians If you have just a little added sugar, such as that found in salad dressing, that would qualify as half a pass for sure. A great no added sugar salad dressing is this shallot dijon dressing by...
