Keto: net carbs 9g
If you are following a ketogenic diet (keto), you need to restrict your daily carbohydrate intake so that your body enters ketosis. For most people, this means less than 50 net carbs per day. Net carbs are calculated by subtracting fiber from total carbs. Example: A product with 26 grams of total carbohydrates and 9 grams of fiber will have 17 grams net carbs. Math equation: 26 - 9 = 17 IMPORTANT: Net carbs are per serving. Make sure you know your serving size or else you may go over your planned intake and exit ketosis.

Contains controversial artificial sweeteners
There is controversy as to the safety of artificial sweeteners consumed over a long period of time. Some studies have linked artificial sweeteners to cancer and other diseases. If you are consuming artificial sweetened food as a means to reduce calories and lose weight, please consider switching to a less sweet state of mind. Getting your palate used to less sweetened foods over the course of several months will save you the hassle of deciding between extra calories and risk of cancer. ------------ Sources: Bryan GT, Erturk E, Yoshida O.

2 tsp of added sugars per serving
Added sugars are sugars and syrups that are added to foods or beverages as part of their preparation. They do not include naturally occurring sugars found in milk and fruits. Table sugar and high fructose corn syrup are examples of added sugars. Honey and maple syrup are also "added sugars" when added to food products. Per the FDA, they are not considered added sugars when sold as single ingredient products. However, at Fooducate we still consider them added sugars because they are basically the same as table sugar in terms of nutrition. The American Heart Association recommends limiting the amount of added sugars you consume to no more than half of your daily discretionary calories allowance. For women: 100 calories (25 grams, 6 tsp per day) For men: 150 calories (37 grams, 9 tsp per day) The FDA is more "generous", the Daily Value for added sugars is 200 calories (50 grams, 12 tsp per day). Here at Fooducate, we suggest sticking to the stricter option (only 25 grams per day for women, 37 grams for men). More info

2 tsp of sugars per serving
This includes naturally both occurring and added sugars. According to the USDA, every man woman and child in the US consumes approximately 80 pounds of caloric sweeteners per year! That works out to 25 tsp of sugars per day, or 400 extra calories! More info

For dieters: FoodPoints value is 1
* FoodPoints are calculated by Fooducate based on fats, carbs, fiber, and protein. They are not an endorsement or approval of the product or its manufacturer. The fewer points - the better.

Learn about corn syrup, found here
Corn syrup is often used as a sweetener in processed food. It is NOT THE SAME as high fructose corn syrup. Don't be fooled when looking up the amount of sugar a product contains if corn syrup is listed as an ingredient. This is because corn syrup contains 50% sugar, and 50% of another form of carbohydrate known as "" oligosaccharides "", which is pretty close to sugar. If a product has less sugar than you think it should, but contains corn syrup in the ingredient list, you'll know that the missing carbs are those oligosaccharides, not much better. More info
