House Passes Chemical Safety Law Reform

FDA rules on evaporated cane juice

We completely agree with this ruling. Sugar is sugar no mater how you spin it label-wise.

FDA: "This guidance is intended to help consumers make informed choices among sweeteners by promoting accurate and consistent labeling.  To that end, we are advising the regulated industry of our view that the term “evaporated cane juice” is not the common or usual name of any type of sweetener and that this ingredient should instead be declared on food labels as “sugar,” preceded by one or more truthful, non-misleading descriptors if the manufacturer so chooses  (e.g., “cane sugar”)."
