I'm currently on a sugar-free diet (for reasons other than just weight loss) and sugar is in EVERYTHING! Literally. It's digsusting. Lol.

I appreciate the list - BUT - I'd love to see a complete listing of hidden sugars - for more foods. This is really helpful. Thanks!

The problem for me is choosing fat over sugar, or fiber over sugar. The other day I bought white pita bread instead of whole wheat because there was a tsp of sugar in each small whole wheat pita. I figure I get enough fiber, sugar is the problem.
Likewise I switched back to full fat mayonnaise (used sparingly!) because low fat Hellman's had so much sugar in it.

Maybe the next time I go grocery shopping I'll make the opposite choice-?

I was reading the label of a package of whole grain sesame crackers I have and noticed in the ingredients "Evaporated Cane Juice" listed as the third item. Isn't this just a mentally misleading way of saying "sugar". There is also honey in the ingredients which means there's two types of sugars in this so-called healthy snack. I will definitely pay very close attention - even to those products in green grocery stores.

i'm a huge sugar-holic and know it's my weak point....always has been. This is a great article to see how much sugar is in food...even food we believe contains no sugars. Hmmmmmm I'm going to see if I can do a daily tracking... I did it with the salt so I'm sure sugar is amongst that too. Thanks for thig.

I work in a hospital and I was shocked to see angel food cake at the top of the list. I thought that was something we were able to give our diabetic residents, but with that much sugar in a slice. My gosh!!!

Wow I did not realise just how many empty calories we consume needlessly! I am so surprised but grateful for the article.

Not only sodas!! I live in Italy. When I go back to the US I have a hard time eating a lot of "normal" food because they have been sweetened up so much - bread, beer (!), iced tea, tomato sauces... there is sugar everywhere!!

Great article. I gave up COKES last year because I know how much sugar is in one 20 oz. bottle. I still miss drinking them, though.

Oh my gosh, thanks for demo. It woke me up as to how much sugar I'm consuming. It's really enlightening. thank you!

I have been looking for information like this! I can never hurt to eat less sugar! I was surprised about ketchup! It seems that everything has sugar in it! I think the GI charts are a good thing - just so we can make better choices!

Thanks for the chart and the info...we need to know this stuff
