  • Rachna yes!! so many 'natural' products sneak in sweeteners. Definitely check the ingredient labels on the back of the package. The front of the package is all marketing =).
  • annefood Awesome @ingalls! You’ll come to find that many companies slap “natural” on the label for impact, when the word doesn’t actually have any meaning. Great catch!
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...

Can I use whole milk and espresso without sweetener? Definitely better flavor but doesn’t the whole milk replace sugar w other calories??

  • Rachna My favorite no added sugar to-go snacks: larabars, mary’s Seed crackers with hummus, grapes, mixed nuts, and for a treat - almond butter-stuffed dates (2 of them will fill you up).
  • AlexB Thank you! Going shopping today to stock up a bit more.
  • annefood I always keep an apple in my bag. Brown rice cakes with nut butter are great too, for protein, as are those crispy baked chickpea snacks you can either make or buy in a pouch. Carrot sticks are...

How do the streaks work?? I don’t really understand. Mine is always zero :(

  • annefood A streak is when you don’t use any full or half passes, and thus successfully avoid added sugar. No passes used for 3 days and you have a 3 day streak, for example. It resets when you use one- I...
  • shmoozii I was wondering about that too.

It says 3 grams of sugar, but I don’t see sugar in the ingredients unless it’s disguised as something else?? Can I eat this trader joe muesli?
  • annefood Hey! The sugar is coming from the raisins, pear juice concentrate, and dried apples. Current nutrition labels show total sugar, which is a combination of any intrinsic sugars (from fruit, grains,...

I’m having a barbecue tonight, what are some no sugar options? And is honey allowed?
1yr
  • Rachna Sounds fun! So honey isn’t allowed but you can replace with dates which are naturally sweet. Also opt for a ketchup with no added sugar if your recipe calls for ketchup or stick with tomato paste....
