Some packaged foods that are made almost entirely of sugar might not list the first ingredient as sugar, which can be misleading. In some cases, many different types of sugar are included in one product. Each of those types of sugar is listed separately according to its weight, but when added together, those sugars may make up the majority of the product. Other names for sugar, types of sugar and sweeteners to look for on food labels include:
Acesulfame, advantame, aspartame, agave, agave nectar, anhydrous dextrose, cane crystals, cane juice, corn sweetener, corn syrup solids, dates, dextrose, dulcin, Equal, erythritol, evaporated cane juice, fructose, fruit juice concentrates, glucin, glucose, honey, juice, liquid fructose, lactose, maltose, maple syrup, molasses, neotame, Nutrasweet, nutrinova, saccharin, sorghum syrup, Splenda, stevia, sucanat, sucralose, sucrose, sugar (brown, cane, coconut, date, granulated, invert, powdered, raw, turbinado, white, etc.), Sweet N’ Low, Sweetmyx, syrup (brown rice, cane, corn, high-fructose corn, flavored, malt, etc.), Truvia, Twinsweet, and xylitol.
