    and I just saw the post from JRSTERN29 with a link to an article too! "I couldn't follow the link to the paper on the http://fnic.nal.usda.gov website, but with a little digging I found this article:https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplu
    s/ency/article/002444.htm - 6/17/2016 10:01:20 AM"
  • the link in the article still does not take us to that information. Will have to do a search for more information via google.
  • I am not big on jams, jellies or preserves but every once in a while (on that rare occasion) I would like a little bit (then the rest of the jar just sits in the refrigerator for months untouched - lol) so I don't get it at all. It would be nice if they didn't add sugars to so many products out there.
  • Very good article I am glad that I read it.
  • I have pretty much tried to go sugar free for a while, since my husband went low carb and we tried the sf thing for an ADHD treatment plan, too. I eat a little sugar, but not a major thing. The amount per day is helpful to see, though. The Spark recipes help a lot and there are a lot of options for alternatives that are still healthy.
  • Hidden sugars are a killer for sure since they trigger my appetite. I liked the list with hidden sugars supplied. I try NOT to eat those things often. Where I have my downfall is with non-fat yogurt. No fat but so much sugar. No wonder I love it. Thanks for a very good article.
  • The link is still broken
  • This was was informative article; now I understand about "sugar" in milk! That was always puzzling.
  • helpful resource link is broken
  • I was told when I clicked on the link that I didn't have permission to view that. Otherwise, great article!
