    Lightbulb The FDA now recommends a daily cap on sugar intake for the first time ! !

    The Food and Drug Administration is recommending a daily cap on sugar for the first time.



    http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/1...ef=health&_r=1

    Health experts have been nudging Americans to kick the sugar habit for years, and now it’s official: The Food and Drug Administration is recommending a daily cap on sugar for the first time.

    While dietary guidelines have been encouraging people to cut back on sugar for decades, the focus has largely been on preventing weight gain. But new research suggests a high-sugar diet may have metabolic effects, separate from weight gain, that promote chronic disease by causing inflammation, insulin resistance and hypertension.

    Most recently, sugar in the diet has also been implicated in cardiovascular disease deaths: A large study led by Dr. Hu reported last year that adults who had the highest intake of sugar — consuming 25 percent of daily calories as sugar — were nearly three times more likely to die of heart disease over a 14-year period, compared with those whose sugar intake was less than 10 percent of calories.

    The goal is for Americans to limit added sugar to no more than 10 percent of daily calories, according to the proposed guidelines. For someone older than 3, that means eating no more than 12.5 teaspoons, or 50 grams, of it a day.

    That’s about the same amount of sugar found in a can of Coke, but for most people, giving up sugary soft drinks will not be enough to meet the recommendations. Caloric sweeteners like sugar, honey and high-fructose corn syrup are found in obvious places like sodas, cookies and candy — but they are also lurking in foods with health appeal, like low-fat yogurt, granola and wholegrain breads, as well as in ketchup, pasta sauce, canned fruit and prepared soups, salad dressings and marinades.

    “There is a lot of hidden sugar in our food supply, and it’s not just in sweets,” said Dr. Frank Hu, a member of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee and a professor of nutrition and epidemiology at Harvard.

    Currently, nutrition labels on food packaging reveal only the total amount of sugar in a product. The F.D.A. has said it wants to change the labels to help consumers distinguish between the amount of naturally occurring sugar and the amount of added sugar.

    Nearly half of the added sugar consumed in the United States comes from sweetened drinks, much of it in soft drinks, but also in sweetened tea and coffee, fruit drinks and sports drinks, according to analyses from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys.

    Sugar makes up about 13.5 percent of Americans’ caloric intake, so public health experts think the goal of 10 percent is attainable. But that’s an average figure: Younger people, blacks and the poor tend to consume higher amounts of sugar and would need to make deeper cuts to reach the goal.

    Critics from the food industry have balked at the sugar cap and the new label requirements, saying the new labels will only confuse shoppers. A study published in The Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in June found that people overestimated the amount of sugar in products that listed “added sugars,” and were less likely to buy them.

    I wish I had the money they spent to come up with that common sense idea. Jack LaLane was telling people on TV added sugar is the worst thing you can put in your body nutrition wise in the 1950s.......oh yeah he died too but in his 90s.

    they could start by taking out the corn syrup that they put in every processed food...and then they load it with salt

    Campbells is responding to the public call for simpler foods by taking ingredients out of their soups starting with the kid favorite chicken noodle soup. They are removing 10 ingredients from their soup recipe! 10 ingredients! sorry but home made chicken noodle soup usually has less than 10 ingredients.

    ingredients for my mom's chicken noodle soup recipe is
    whole chicken
    water
    half a dozen carrots
    4 stalks celery
    one large onion
    salt
    pepper
    noodles are all purpose flour and an egg and a pinch of salt

    9 ingredients = chicken noodle soup, and Campbells are taking OUT 10 ingredients



    we just eat too many manufactured foods. The slow cooker and the pressure cooker are your friends

    Daisy, you are absolutely right. High fructose corn syrup and processed foods are making America fat.
