Why label added sugar?

Current nutrition labels don't indicate which sugars have been added to the products. Thus, we often don't realize how much sugar we really are consuming.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hidden & Added
     
Unlike what many expect, 50% of our added sugar consumption comes from savory foods , not sweets or beverages.
 
Added Sugar in Infant Formula
  
Some of the most popular infant formula products have less lactose and larger amounts of sugar - as much as 61 teaspoons in 1 box of formula.
 
Tricked by the Diets
      
Surprisingly, many gluten-free, fat-free, and organic products can have significantly more added sugar than the regular option.
 
 
A Public Health Emergency
 
Added sugar consumption is directly correlated with  heart disease , obesity, and Type 2 diabetes.
