Agreed sugar can be the culprit in many problems. Along with the fats, blood glucose circulates in our systems for maximum performance. The problem is with all the added 'ose' sugars in our foods. The closer you can eat to the garden the better off you are! The fruit purees qualify!

At the web site listed above Honey is just as bad. Honey has the highest calorie content of all sugars with 65 calories/tablespoon, compared to the 48 calories/tablespoon found in table sugar.
