Sugar is not a necessary nutrient for health and bodily function. Your body prefers more complex carbs such as rice, oatmeal, vegetables, etc. and although moderate amounts of sugar aren't harmful perse, large doses can send someone into adult onset diabetes if consumed in large quanities, as it wreaks havoc on insulin production and in the least it can be converted directly into body fact and bring your metabolism to a screeching halt. Not good for anyone trying to lose weight or maintain a lean physique. I'd imagine that it being labeled like that is for people who want to keep their sugar intake under tight wraps such as diabetics and dieters.
