‘Added Sugar’ May Add to Weight Gain in U.S.

March 24, 2011, WebMD Health News: Research shows that as consumption of added sugars has increased, so too, have body weights. Added sugars are sugars in foods that aren’t naturally occurring. They’re mixed in as sugar or syrups during processing or preparation.

The sugar in fruit, fructose, for example, wouldn’t count as an added sugar. But the high-fructose corn syrup that’s added to some kinds of fruit cocktail would fall into that category. So would sugars added to sweeten yogurt, soft drinks, and processed snacks and desserts like cookies, cakes, and pies.

The study was presented at the American Heart Association’s Nutrition, Physical Activity and Metabolism/Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology and Prevention 2011 Scientific Sessions.

Over 27 years since 1980, consumption of added sugars increased for all ages and both sexes. In the latest survey, which was conducted from 2007 to 2009, for example, men were getting about 15% of their total daily calories from added sugars, nearly 40% more than was reported in the study’s first survey, which ran from 1980 to 1982. Among women, added sugar intake rose from about 10% to about 13% over that same time period. At the same time, BMIs climbed along with sugar consumption.
