Sugar vs Added Sugar
If a food I enter doesn't have a separate category for 'added sugars,' then all the sugar in that food will count as sugar, correct? How can I monitor my added sugar intake if the labels don't contain that information? Is there a work-around (like reviewing the micros under sugar label)?
Where should I enter the maximum grams of sugar I'd like to consume in a day? It seems if I enter it to 'added sugars,' I get 0 every day, but if I add it to 'sugar' it counts fresh fruit, etc.

Welcome to Cronometer Marvine,
There is a discussion about added sugars here, that I think will answer your questions: https://forums.cronometer.com/discussion/comment/1584#
Until we have more complete data on the amount of added sugars in packaged food products, you may wish to set a target for total sugars instead.
