10 Foods That Cause Mucus

Mucus Causing Food #2: Added Sugars

Added sugars refer to sugars that do not occur naturally. For example, it includes cane sugar, fructose, and high fructose corn syrup that is added to food and beverages to make it taste sweet. These added sugars contain calories but very few nutrients. This is important as sugars can increase mucus production.

Added sugars can often be found in commercially made pastries, cakes, cookies, pies, candy, chocolate, soft drinks, sweetened iced tea, fruit punch, and energy drinks. It should be noted that there are no added sugars in fruits as the sugars found in fruits are naturally occurring. Besides mucus production, added sugars are also implicated in obesity and metabolic syndrome.
