Other names for salt, fat, sugar, and fibre

Sorting through some old papers, I stumbled this list that my old high teacher had shared with me several years ago. I find it quite useful for understanding what you may be knowingly (or unknowingly) consuming and adding into your food.

I hope you find it useful.

Please comment you find any other ones that can be added to this list. Enjoy!
