Excessive sugar intake not only creates a weight problem but also creates the ground for the onset of diabetes. Simply avoiding sweets, or foods that we already know are sweet, do not seem to be enough. If we have high blood sugar, or if we have diabetes, or if for some reason we want to limit the sugar in our diet, then we need to know that there are foods that contain enough sugar and let them not be sweet.
They can be salty and not sweet, but many sauces contain 6-12 grams of sugar per half cup. This is the same amount you will get from a piece of chocolate chip cookie.
Check their packaging for ingredients such as corn syrup, brown sugar, honey, brown sugar syrup, dextrose and fructose. Some bars, in fact, have a layer of yogurt, or chocolate, or pieces of chocolate. All this raises the sugar content in cereal bars to 8-12 grams per serving.
The sweetest oils can have 5-7 grams of sugar in just two tablespoons.
Even the healthiest (with oats, corn and bran) contain 10-20 grams of sugar per cup. Don’t look at what cereal boxes say in capital letters. Always check the information with their ingredients.
They contain about 40 grams of sugar per cup. Even if you drain the fruit from the syrup, at least 15 grams of sugar per cup remain.
