Women should consume only 24 grams of sugar each day, while males can have up to 36 grams, according to experts. Did you realize, though, that a can of Coke contains roughly 40 grams of sugar? Although everyone is aware that sodas are rich in sugar, many people are unaware that a can of tomato soup can contain up to 20 grams of sugar per serving, and even your favorite apple juice, even if labeled unsweetened, contains roughly 25 grams of sugar per cup.
We're shining a sugary spotlight on items we used to think were nutritious and low-sugar.
1. Soup from a can
You'd think that store-bought soup is a good source of water and nutrients. When you look at the nutrition information, you'll see that a single can of sugar can actually meet your full daily sugar requirement. This is notably frequent in tomato-based sauces, where sugar is used to offset the tomatoes' acidity.
2. Yogurt with low fat
While low-fat meals are appealing to individuals attempting to live a healthier lifestyle, not all of them are beneficial to your health, particularly yogurt. A cup of full-fat plain yogurt contains 4.7 grams of sugar, whereas a serving of Greek yogurt contains anything from 6 to 12 grams. Sugar is added to low-fat choices to compensate for the loss of flavor and consistency caused by fat. Many low-fat and flavored yogurts contain sugars that are harmful to your health, such as sucrose or high-fructose corn syrup.
3. Salad dressing with no fat
Salad dressings with lower fat and calorie content, like yogurt, have higher sugar content.
About 7 to 10 grams of additional fat can be found in 2 teaspoons of your favorite store-bought salad dressing.
To avoid additional sugars, preservatives, or other unhealthy components, experts advocate preparing your own salad dressing at home. A vinaigrette, which consists of three ingredients: olive oil, two parts vinegar, and some salt and pepper, is a nutritious salad dressing that you can simply prepare at home.
4. Tomato Ketchup
This bottled sauce is one of the most widely used sauces in the world. Ketchup is a sweet, sour, and umami-flavored condiment that is commonly used in fast-food burgers and as a dipping sauce for french fries. A single tablespoon of this crimson condiment, on the other hand, is the equivalent of placing an entire sugar cube in your mouth. Most commercial bottles of ketchup include considerable levels of high fructose corn syrup, which has been linked to obesity and heart disease, with around 4 grams of sugar per tablespoon.
