I think this PDF by the USDA food database is very accurate and helpful for counting "added sugar" in food:

A quick summary of the above: It's impossible to count "sugar" under the current US labeling laws because there's no standard for whether to list all sugars together or break them down by type. If you try, you'll find that sometimes you're counting double and sometimes you're only counting a fraction of what's really there.

I've been counting calories for years, and while it has worked, I'm ready to switch things up. Does anyone know how to track Sugars on SP? Thanks!
