How Much Sugar Is Actually In Your Food, From Pasta Sauce To Salad Dressing

By Suzy Strutner | It’s time to grocery shop a little wiser.

You might assume sugar lurks mostly in foods like candy and doughnuts. But companies sneak sugar into all kinds of foods you’d never suspect, from beef jerky to good ol’ store-bought pasta sauce.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommends consuming no more than about 50 grams of added sugar ― that is, the type of sugar that doesn’t naturally occur in whole foods like fruit ― per day. But it becomes scary easy to exceed that limit when you consider how much sugar is added to our everyday eats.

Check out this graphic from fitness website 9Round to help you grocery shop a little wiser. While not all the sugar listed is added sugar ― the milk and cranberry juice listed contain only naturally occurring sugars, for example ― you’ll still get an idea of just how much sugar you’re ingesting overall.
