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,...

Is bread a NO on this challenge?! I just realized some fresh baked breads probably have sugar??? Help! Tips on which to avoid? Or avoid all?

  • Rachna Great question!! Some breads are definitely allowed, but most actually have some added sugar. It's best to check the ingredient label to be sure. Some favorites we love: Ezekiel sprouted grain...
  • joywang Hi there! I wanted to give a heads up if you ever check the label and it still says for example, 1g sugar even though there's no added sugar in the ingredients, that can be due to the natural...
What challenge should I start next?🤨

What’s a good non sugar item to eat after an intense workout? I would usually do a glass of chocolate milk after running but I am starving after playin an hour and a half of basketball!
  • kmkelman I like the peanut butter rx bar. Or but butter in a banana. Handful of almonds
  • annefood Anything with good carbs and protein that sounds tasty to you. Nuts and fruit per @kmkelman is a great suggestion if you want something light. Or plain yogurt with fresh fruit- you could turn that...
  • ElanaG It was at 10:30pm so definitely didn’t want anything heavy. Ended up just going to sleep

It’s getting easier everyday. This is the longest I’ve gone without added sugar in years. 💙💚
  • annefood That's fantastic @shmoozii ! I'm so glad to hear it. And I totally agree—it can be really hard in the beginning, but once you get in the habit of avoiding added sugar it becomes so much easier by...
  • gracealina I agree! I feel so great I am not even tempted by the free junk at the office!

Is the fruit “must” in my balsamic vinegar considered an added sugar?

  • Rachna Hey @elievois - nope! fruit must is basically crushed up fruit, so that is a-ok during the Avoid Added Sugar challenge.
  • elievois @Rachna thank you, you may have just saved my sugarless life!
  • Rachna no problemo!! that's what we're here for =)
I was fooled! And failed to pay attention!

I bought Acme whole wheat walnut bread. Yum. I read the ingredients and saw no trace of sugar before buying.. but then after eating a slice this morning.. I realized that there is 1 gram of sugar. ...
  • Rachna Sounds like half a free pass ;) that’s what they are for
  • trishz So it’s in trace amounts that they didn’t have to list in the ingredients.
  • Rachna So sorry about that - we looked at acme brand more closely and it’s a very reputable company. No sugar of any kind was listed so the 1g was probably naturally occurring and is allowed. If you...

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. ;-)
  • annefood Indeed they do!
Thanks Aldi!
