Health experts agree to limit your intake
There are basically two types of sugars in food—added and naturally occurring. Added sugars are put in during the processing or preparation of food and include things like table sugar, syrups, and honey. Naturally occurring sugars are found in fruits, veggies, whole grains and dairy foods.
These naturally occurring sugars aren’t cause for concern because the foods they’re found in are full of other nutrients and antioxidants that support health in a big way. Added sugars, however, contribute calories and no nutrients. Consuming too many added sugars can increase your risk for obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
