10 Alternative Names for Hidden Sugar in Food

I'm reading a great article about hidden sugar in food. Below is a list of alternative sugar names that can appear on labels:

1. sucrose
2. fructose
3. maple syrup
4. molasses
5. dextrose
6. turbinado
7. amazake
8. sorbitol
9. carob powder
10. glucose

Because this is such important info (and it's right at my fingertips!) here's more:

invert sugar
raw sugar
brown sugar
confectioner's sugar
granulated sugar
corn syrup
high-fructose corn syrup

What amazes me more are the foods that contain so much sugar that don't even seem sweet, like white bread. It's literally everywhere....
