Beware Of Hidden Sugar

preventative dentistry in FayettevilleAt The Fayetteville Dentist, we counsel our patients to watch their sugar intake to prevent cavities and other health problems.

If you are trying to get sugar out of your diet, you are probably skipping the usual suspects: candy, soda, and baked treats. But not all sugar is as conspicuous as the frosting on a piece of chocolate cake or the powdery stuff in pixie stix.

Here are some foods found in grocery stores and school cafeterias with a surprisingly high sugar content:

  • Ketchup
  • Low fat versions of snack foods (Manufacturers often replace fat with sugar.)
  • Salad dressing
  • Breads, buns, rolls
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Protein bars
  • Granola
  • Canned soup
  • Peanut butter
  • Yogurt
  • Fast food meals (Hamburgers, fries, sandwiches, and salads are often loaded with sugar, not to mention the dessert items.)
  • Antacids
  • Cough drops
  • Fruit smoothies (Even a small serving has a whopping amount of sugar.)

Reading the fine print on labels is a must!

At The Fayetteville Dentist, we want the best possible dental health for each of our patients. We encourage everyone to brush and floss twice a day, and see us for a cleaning and checkup twice a year. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.
