Suggested Uses:

Cook with browned onions, parsley & dill.

Prepare as a hot cereal: cook in milk or juice, then stir in sweetener, toasted nuts & dried fruit.

Try in stuffed cabbage or add to soups.

 

For optimal shelf life, store in a cool, dry place.

Added vs. natural

Most sugar in the American diet comes from added sweeteners, namely in beverages. Excess sugar by the name of syrup, honey, nectar, molasses, sugar, agave, concentrated juice, fructose, glucose or sucrose, from places like bars, candy, cookies, pies, fruit drinks and desserts offer very little benefit to our health. However, sugar which is inherent to fruit and dairy (as well as in small varying amounts from legumes, grains and vegetables), offers a pretty package of fiber and protein, respectively. Keep in mind that dehydrated fruit, such as raisins or dried cranberries, will have more sugar per ounce than its fresh counterpart due to extracting the moisture, therefore it is advisable to stick to one serving.

How much sugar is OK?

The “Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) 2015-2020” recommends that no more than 10 percent of your total calorie intake be from added sugars. This means for an adult following a 1,600-calorie diet, no more than 40 grams a day should be from added sweeteners, while an adult following a 2,000-calorie diet should not exceed 50 grams of added sugar per day. If you are at increased risk for heart disease, the American Heart Association has more stringent guidelines that suggest no more than 25 grams (six teaspoons) added sugar for women and no more than 36 grams (nine teaspoons) added sugar for men is consumed daily. The DGA advises to strive for two cup-equivalents of fruit (on a 2,000-calorie diet) and three cup-equivalents of dairy or fortified soy milk on a daily basis for a healthy eating pattern.

New & improved labels

The food industry is undergoing an overhaul of the nutrition facts panel present on food packaging. The standard nutrition facts panel from the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) of years past will now experience a facelift: different listed vitamins/minerals, larger fonts, adjusted serving sizes, and the clarification on how much total sugar is added. This puts some power back at our fingertips as now consumers can determine, for example, if a fruit-derived food product actually has most of its sugar content from produce itself or if it is from added sweetener.
