“Sugar-Free,” Not As Glorious As It Sounds

The label, “sugar-free” has made quite the appearance on many popular food products in the last few decades. “Sugar-free” is surprisingly enticing to many, as people often choose certain products with this label because they think it is a healthier alternative. Unfortunately, there is a catch to such ideas as many ‘sweet’ products that are considered “sugar-free” contain artificial, lab-generated chemicals that are used as substitutes to sugar. Aspartame, Sucralose, Corn Syrup, and package sweeteners (Splenda, Sweet N Low, and Equal) are the most popular artificial sweeteners used in sugar-free foods.
