Evaporated Cane Juice in Trader Joe’s Organic Soy Chocolate Milk

Sure, you see the label and think, "Organic? Soy? Sure, that must be good for kids." But according to a new class-action lawsuit filed last month against the chain, the Trader Joe’s milk may be filled with more sugar than you think. The soy milk was just one of the many products named in the suit for one particular ingredient — evaporated cane juice — which the plaintiffs say is just a fancy word for sugar. As The Huffington Post notes, "The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has banned the term 'evaporated cane juice' as a synonym for sugar on packaged foods, but the use of the term has become increasingly common over the past few years." The suit also alleges that the label on the organic soy chocolate milk is misleading because it suggests that it acts as a substitute for dairy milk, despite the fact that calcium from soy milk is harder to absorb than calcium from dairy milk.
