Very Sneaky, Sugar Acid

When you read the nutrition labels for cookies, doughnuts, and soft drinks, it's not surprising to see they're packed with sugar. What IS surprising are the sugar levels of some foods that are not known to be overly sweet. To help you spot these, we've rounded up some of these unusual suspects!

Very Sneaky Yogurt

FLAVORED YOGURT 

While plain, Greek yogurt is low in sugar, flavored ones can pack as much as 26 grams of sugar in a typical 6 oz cup. Around the same as a doughnut!

DRIED FRUIT 

Although they can be a healthy snack in moderation, don’t let the word “fruit” fool you. Some, like dates, have as much as 32 grams of sugar in just a handful.

KETCHUP 

This popular condiment sneaks 1 tablespoon of sugar in each tablespoon serving.

GRANOLA BARS

The smiling, fit hikers in ads probably don’t realize how much sugar is actually in those bars. Instead, make your own mix with nuts, oatmeal, cranberries, and even a bit of dark chocolate.

CEREALS

Many cereals, even bran, are crammed with as many as 13 grams of sugar per serving. But there are still cereals with as little as 2 to 6 grams. So, read the label carefully, because the healthy ones are still a great source of fiber.
