Want to be a sugar detective and help friends and family stay away from added sugar? SugAR Mon helps you find added-sugar-monsters lurking in your foods.
SugAR Mon functions very much like a popular game for catching monsters. Simply scan barcodes on many food or beverage in stores or at home to find out what added-sugar-monsters are inside!
Natural sugars that come from fruits, vegetables, legumes, and dairy are good for the body. Added sugars - those added to processed foods and beverages - are bad for our health; they have been linked to weight gain, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
As you encounter more Sugar Monsters, they will appear on your SugarDex and you will be able to track how many you have captured. As of the release of the app, there are 247 added sugars. You can collect them all and become a sugar detective!
Download SugAR Mon now and find the added sugars in the foods and drinks your friends consume and help them stay away from those monsters!
