The Bright Line for sugar includes all forms of sugar and sweeteners. We do not eat sugar or sweeteners in any form, including those listed below.
Names of sugar:
Corn syrup solids
Dehydrated cane juice
Free-flowing brown sugars
Fruit juice concentrate
HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup…very bad!)
Malted barley extract
Names of artificial sweeteners:
This list is not exhaustive. There are others, and more are being invented every day.
For manufactured products such as salad dressings, tomato sauce, condiments, and the like, we make sure there is no sugar or flour listed in the first three ingredients. Of course, if the sweetener is further down than third place on the ingredients list but the product tastes sweet, then it should be avoided.
