That sugar is present in cakes, biscuits and treats we all know. But are we taking into account foods that contain hidden sugar?
Sugar is considered to be a major contributor to the global epidemic: obesity.
There are many hidden sugar foods . Food that you can not imagine contains sugar, and eating them is making the balance at the end of the day is higher than expected.
In 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a guide recommending that daily sugar consumption should not exceed 10% of the total calories consumed daily.
However, it is increasingly difficult not to exceed this limit, since most foods, mainly processed, have sugar in its composition.
There are foods you can not even imagine contain sugar, and by eating them you’re making the balance at the end of the day better than you’d expect, even without realizing it.
FOODS TO KEEP IN MIND
1. SAUCE AND TOMATO PASTE
There is no doubt that tomato is a healthy and quite nutritious food. But are all products that contain tomatoes equally healthy?
Not really, because most tomato concentrates have sugar in their composition.
- For every 100g of tomato pulp, about 5g of sugar is present, almost 1 package of sugar.
Tip: Always prefer the tomato to the natural one. Make your own sauce at home, and freeze it for future uses.
2. SHAPE BREAD

This option is therefore less healthy.
- Each slice of whole wheat bread has about 70 kcal and 2 grams of sugar.
Tip: Give the bakery bread (rye, whole, cereal) rather than the bun.

Therefore, there are healthier options than others.
- A solid flavored yogurt (125 g) can have about 15g of sugar, while a natural yogurt or flavorings 0% added sugars contains about 4g of sugar.
Tip: Avoid sugary yogurts and prefer the natural and / or low sugar.

Breakfast cereals are an excellent alternative to bread, but like yogurts, they have a less positive side to the amount of sugar.
Due to the great diversity of cereals on the supermarket shelves, it can be a difficult task to choose the most appropriate ones (from the point of view of the quantity of sugar).
- Breakfast cereals contain varying amounts of sugar, up to 15g per serving (30g) or more.
Tip: Look for unsweetened whole grains, even knowing that the supply is reduced, they exist and the amount of sugar is reduced.
5. CANNED VEGETABLES
Because they are legumes, it is found at the outset that they are healthy and only do good to the body. But not quite.
These types of canned goods, as a rule, contain sugar, which makes you feel that you are making a good choice when in fact you are not.
Peas, corn and vegetable springs stand out at this point.
- Some brands of canned vegetables contain more than 3g of sugar per serving (65g)
Tip: It is best to choose fresh or alternatively frozen vegetables.
