Sugars and 0g sugars on labels


Recommended Posts

All fruits and vegetables have naturally occurring sugars. The whole30 program is concerned with added sugars and sweeteners, and the ingredient list is king.

I believe US labeling laws allow a label to say 0g of something if the actual total is less than 0.5g. I may be wrong, but that seems to be the rule for fat. Fda labeling.

So, in reality, ignore the values on the nutrition label.

A product could have 12g of sugar, but the ingredient list is only tomatoes. This product is compliant.

A product could have 0g of sugar, but the ingredient list is chicken, honey. This product is not compliant.

Like the moderator said above, ignore the nutrition label.
