Be a Sugar Sleuth


You can use the Nutrition Facts label on foods to guide you in looking for sugars and carbohydrates, both of which are important to consider in meal planning if you have diabetes.

Note that foods labeled as sugar-free, no sugar added, reduced sugar and dietetic may still contain carbohydrate. Sugar is only one type of carbohydrate that affects blood-glucose levels. To get the complete amount of carbohydrate, look at the Nutrition Facts

Sugar is listed under the Total Carbohydrate on the Nutrition Facts panel. Keep in mind that it includes both added sugars and naturally occurring sugars, such as the natural sugar in raisins.
