Natural Sugars vs. Added Sugars

I'd like to see a differentiation of natural sugars vs. added sugars. Similar to the breakdown of fats into healthy vs. unhealthy fats.

    The explanation makes sense, however, fruits are all natural sugar (ie bananas, strawberries, honey, etc...). Could that be differentiated somehow?

    There is no capability for a user to indicate that a food is fruit when creating a database entry. How would MFP "know" what was fruit/sweetened with fruit and what had sugar from different sources?
