Sugar content labels

How to Inspect for the proper amounts of sugar on labels.

 

Note: Added sugar is the same as the amount of sugar on a label. It is a redundancy for some sort of legal reason. So if Cookies say 12g of sugar every 3 cookies, and then 12g of added sugar, it is 12g total, so says Margaret. 50g a day is the loosely recommended amount of sugar, so if the box says 3 cookies give you 24% of total allowed sugar, the math says it is 12g total.
