The lower the fat, the higher the sugar

Take a trip around your local supermarket and glance at the labels of the ‘healthy’ low fat foods. I bet you will find them loaded with sugar.

Since I started this experiment I have been surprised at how ubiquitous fructose is. I have been frustrated at times trying to purchase for example, yoghurt, that has no sugar. The best I have found is a full fat version with a minimal amount of sugar. It’s not ideal but 25% of the sugar you would find in a regular yoghurt is better than nothing.

If fructose were banned tomorrow the shelves at your local shop or supermarket would be pretty empty.
