I love eating pasta and sometimes, I will cheat and use a jar sauce in addition to my fresh ingredients. A jar of pasta sauce will have about 6g of sugar per 100g.

12. Dried fruit

13. Energy drinks

Ok, so sometimes we need a pick-me-up drink, but next time you reach for an energy drink, keep in mind that there could be up to 83g of sugar in that. That’s around 33g of sugar per 100g.

14. Salad dressing

Don’t make a healthy salad unhealthy with loads of dressing. Some of the commercial dressings can have 16g of sugar per 100g. That’s around 5g of sugar per serving. Why not try it with a light drizzle of olive oil and balsamic or apple cider vinegar?

15. Canned Soup

A bowl of soup and some crusty bread can be a great go-to meal when you’re busy, but be careful – one can (that’s two small servings) has about 20g of sugar, 4g per 100g.

Wowsers – that is a lot of sugar! Hope this helps you make educated decisions about the food you buy!
