POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Hidden sugars are everywhere. Yogurt, granola bars, tomato sauce all of these products which have the potential to be a health power houses have sugars hidden everywhere.
That is why the Digestive Disease Center and Mid-Huson Regional Hospital at Westchster Medical Center will host a seminar, "Keep It Healthy For Life, Hidden Sugars," on Wednesday, April 27.
Theresa Zangerle-McArtin, RD, CDN, will present the program.
"I scouted out some of the more 'healthy' options and found that these options were not so healthy. Nature valley granola bars contained 12 grams of added sugar with sugar being the third ingredient on their list," Zangerle-McArtin said.
Other examples included on her list included Kind bars providing 13g of added sugar with honey and apple juice on their ingredient list and Chobani fruit at the bottom providing 13g of sugar and evaporated cane juice being the second ingredient.
For those who would like to find out more about hidden sugars, the event will be held at 5:30 p.m., in Conference Room A at Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital, One Webster Ave.
