Unfortunately SP does not have a way to do that.

Thank you, that document is great. What I was looking for is a way to show how much sugar is in the food I'm eating, naturally occurring or not.

The report that we can run to show the total fat, carbs, fiber, calories, etc. does not have an option (even looking at the very large list of additional nutrients that you can track) to show the sugar.

I assume you are talking about "added sugar".
This listing on a food label is very deceptive since it includes added sugar but also the natural sugar found in fruits, milk, yogurt, etc.

This link will take you to a PDF listing of the added sugar in over 2000 food items from the USDA food database. I think you will find it helful.

Why isn't there a way (or maybe I just haven't found it) to track sugar? It's the biggest problem for me for gaining weight and I would like to actually see how much sugar I'm getting each day.
