Ok, I don't know if I should applaud the FDA for making the nutrition labels start adding the % of daily recommendation of "added sugars" to our food labels or send them a "what the *bleep* are you thinking" letter.
It will be very interesting to see what the official % of the daily intake is allotted for added sugars. They say 10%, REALLY? I mean really, no one "needs" added sugars. And while I do understand that it can be a helpful addition, if that % is anything less than 100%, then I don't really know how it's going to really help?
Is added sugar in the government's idea of a food pyramid? Even in that messed up chart, I have never seen anywhere that they put candy, sugar and sweets as part of the foods to eat daily.
Sorry, this article just made me laugh and the fact that it was featured as a "good" thing on one of my favorite diabetes websites really made my head spin. Am I missing something here?
