That has sugar too? No way!

Certain foods are widely known to contain sugar, such as candy, cookies, soda, mixed drinks and desserts. It’s appalling that practically everything in a bottle or a package contains sugar. Some of these even surprised me.

Balsamic Vinaigrette
Newman's Own Balsamic Vinaigrette
Newman’s balsamic vinaigrette has sugar listed as the 5th ingredient. All along, I thought it was just oil, vinegar and spices!

BBQ sauce
Annie's organic BBQ hot chipotle sauce
Brown rice syrup is listed as the 2nd ingredient and sugar cane is listed as the 5th ingredient. BBQ sauces are notorious for lots of sugar.

Broth & soups.

Creamers

Fruit and Nut bars
Jalepeno Kind Bar
This Kind bar has honey as the 3rd ingredient and glucose as the 4th ingredient; that’s why it’s so sweet.

Ham

In this nitrate-free Trader Joe’s ham, sugar is the 5th ingredient, what a bummer!

Ketchup

Von’s tomato ketchup has sugar as the 2nd ingredient. They should rename it: Ketchup-Sugar.

Pastrami

Protein Bars

This Cliff Builder’s protein bar has brown rice syrup listed as the 3rd ingredient and cane syrup as the 4th ingredient. Sugar bar!

Roasted seaweed

This seaweed snack has sugar listed as the 9th ingredient. I was surprised it had sugar at all.

Salad dressings
Vegan Dressing
Miso salad dressing. Honey is listed as the second ingredient; no wonder I like it.

Sauces

This orange sauce has sugar listed as the 1st ingredient. Wow!

Sriracha hot sauce

This spicy Asian sauce has sugar listed as the 3rd ingredient. This was a surprise to me.

Tomato sauce

Kirkland’s organic tomato sauce lists sugar as the 4th ingredient.

Worcestershire Sauce
Lea & Perrins Worchestershire Sauce
This Worcestershire sauce has sugar listed as the 3rd ingredient. Everything really DOES contain sugar!

Of course, the above is not a complete list, otherwise it would be miles long! Beware that the following items commonly contain sugar: bottled tea, bread, cereal (Cheerios has sugar as the 3rd ingredient!), chocolate protein powder, crackers, chewing gum, granola, pasta sauces, deli meat, pretzels, and yogurt. It’s no wonder we’re addicted to sugar; we’re programmed to desire it each time we eat.
