Sugar  is dumped in foods where you would least expect it.
Just to put that in perspective, there’s about 13 grams of sugar in a chocolate glazed donut.
Here are a few “healthy” foods that have MORE than that 13 grams of sugar in them.

* Fruit-flavored yogurt.  One serving has 26 grams of sugar.  That’s about as much as you get in TWO donuts.

* Energy Bars.  If you have the kind with chocolate chips in them, you’re having 23 grams of sugar.

* Orange Juice.  One cup of OJ has about 20 grams of sugar in it.

* Applesauce. A typical serving has 16 grams of sugar.

* Tomato soup.  Your average serving has 15 grams of sugar.

* Dried cranberries.  One packet of Craisens has 34 grams of sugar. WOW!

* Starbucks Grande Latte.  You probably don’t think of a PLAIN latte as that bad for you, but it has 17 grams of sugar in it.
