Here is how added sugar works in nutraCoster.
nutraCoster 3.0 nutrition data has a new field called added sugar.
You indicate that an item contributes added sugar when you use it as an ingredient in a recipe.
Items that have a non-zero value for added sugar are automatically marked as "Contributes Added Sugar" when you add them to a recipe.
If you mark an ingredient as "Contributes Added Sugar" and it does not have a value for added sugar, nutraCoster will use the total sugar value as the added sugar value.
Recipes that are imported or upgraded from nutraCoster 2.1 have no concept of added sugar. You do not need to re-enter these recipes, but you will need to mark certain ingredients as "Contributes Added Sugar".
Here is a summary:
See the regulations for a partial list of items that are always added sugar.
