Sugar Not Listed in Nutritional Analysis and Ingredient List

Why aren't sugars included in the nutritional analysis and the Ingredient List in MasterCook?

MasterCook uses a version of the USDA database that does not list sugars separately. Instead they are part of the Total Carb count in the nutritional analysis in MasterCook. In the future we plan to overhaul the Ingredient List/nutritional analysis in MasterCook to include new fields in MasterCook such as sugar and those that kidney disease patients must also track such as phosphorus. We also plan to keep in mind the new rules from the FDA with labeling laws:

However, we are currently working on adding it to MasterCook.com as announced here: MasterCook Moves To The Cloud

Thank you for your feedback. We use it as we continue to develop the product. There is much we want to get done in MasterCook.
