Reading food labels

Thursday, April 23, 2009

We were doing our grocery shopping the other day. When you look on the front of the package you'll notice the labels that aren't written in common day to day words. It's like a detective work. It's funny when even sugar goes under lots of names. Ose at the end of a word stands for sugar. There's sucrose (common table sugar), dextrose, and fructose (fruit sugar). It just frustrates me sometimes when they use big scientific words on the labels that I never understand what in the world it is. Unless you went online and consult Merriam-Webster dictionary of course.
