Life is Sweet with Easy Sugar Swaps

When was the last time you thought about the amount of added sugars in your diet?

Studies show that most Americans eat more than twice the amount of added sugar than is recommended for a healthy lifestyle. Excess sugar intake can contribute to excess weight gain, and being overweight may increase the risk of developing serious health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease. The SPLENDA® Brand is proud to support the American Heart Association’s Simple Cooking with Heart, which provides tasteful, easy tips for a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and other valuable nutrients that are lower in sodium, cholesterol, saturated and trans fats. Simple Cooking with Heart™ provides families with information, cooking know-how and recipes for affordable and nutritious meals that can be made at home. These simple swaps can help you and your family reduce added sugar intake without sacrificing the great flavors you enjoy.

Check out this infographic (pdf version) to see how you and your family can cut down on added sugars with these easy swaps! (Note: a downloadable image of the infographic also appears here.)
