Any food label which end with ‘ose’ is sugar said Padmashri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal President Heart Care Foundation of India and MTNL Perfect Health Mela. The examples are glucose, maltose, sucrose, fructose, galactose etc.
 
For people with diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome eating sugar needs to be restricted.  Therefore every patient must know the food labels where sugar is present. Most people confuse sugar with only glucose.
 
Malta contains maltose, table sugar contains sucrose, fruits contain fructose, and glucose available in the pharmacy contains glucose.
 
If eaten in excess, all forms of sugar can increase blood sugar in the body. They also can cause insulin resistance if the sugar is taken in the form of refined sugar or is rapidly absorbable form.
