This is a new category that the food industry fought hard to avoid. It was added to give voice to recent research emphasizing just how many sugars come from processed foods. Added sugars must be measured in grams and as a percent daily value. The sugar industry is not behind the change, but the FDA says the change is necessary to help consumers distinguish between sugars added to foods and sugars that come naturally in things like fresh fruit.
