This would have been a far more helpful article if it discussed the amounts of sugar in foods you don't normally expect to have sugar, like ketchup, pasta sauce, etc. There's no surprise to me that cakes and candies have sugar and a lot of it!
True enough you would expect sugar to be in those sorts of foods. I have even seen sugar in things like sausages, some sour tasting condiments where you would think the LAST thing it would have in it would be sugar- not to mention what about Molasses and Caramel?? Those are in a lot of foods also ( I am not sure if they are as big a culprit but they are definitely there)
I agree with LKISINSATIABLE... this is not really about hidden sugar. Cake has sugar in it. So does soda pop. The kinds of sugars I think are important are the ones that are not reported on labels. AND many of these would be, in my opinion.
