Did you know? Here are five "innocent" foods where sugar can be hidden

Did you know? Here are five "innocent" foods where sugar can be hidden

A big challenge in our daily diet is to identify foods that we consider healthy, but actually hide small or large amounts of sugar.

Only the type of a food is not enough to conclude whether it is beneficial for our body. Can e.g. cake may naturally contain sugar or other sweetener, but we wouldn't think the same of yogurt.

The nutritional label of the products, however, as well as the way they are prepared hides all their nutritional truth, which we are called to learn how to distinguish.

So what are five foods where sugar can be hiding?

Rich in calcium, protein and probiotics, yogurt is an excellent food for our body, but very often it hides significant amounts of sugar, up to ten grams per serving. Especially yogurts that are fortified with fruit pieces or juices, as well as grains or other elements that give a richer taste, are terrible in terms of sugar content, so it's best to check the nutrition label carefully before eating. we add them to our diet. If we are not sure about their sugar content, we prefer classic strained yogurt or goat yogurt.

Often commercial juices, even freshly squeezed ones, can be served without their fiber or with flavor enhancers. They contain vitamins and other valuable ingredients, but should be consumed wisely, because one serving can contain up to fifty grams of sugar. We prefer to consume juices that we have prepared ourselves and try to add vegetables, such as spinach, that do not contain sugar and significantly lower their glycemic index.

They are lifesavers, as they give us the energy we need to get on with our day and are a very popular snack found in almost every bag. However, many types of bars hide a large amount of sugar in them, especially in the form of glucose. So to control the amount of sugar in a cereal bar, we look carefully at the nutrition label and aim to consume those that include natural sweeteners, such as dates or other dried fruit.

Like cereal bars, granola is an ideal hiding place for sugar. Of course, it is a valuable source of vegetable fiber and we can keep it in our daily diet, but by choosing brands that produce granola without sugar and other sweeteners. Again, the addition of dry fruits gives a rich flavor effect and keeps us full for a longer period of time.

Perhaps the hardest track of all is dried fruit, especially the ones we buy in bulk and don't have the ability to read their nutrition labels. However, we can always ask at the store which of their products have added sugar and prefer dried fruits that are not particularly processed. Dates, plums, raisins and strawberries are some safe choices, and in case we're not sure about their refined sugar content, we prefer to reserve some unsalted almonds for a snack.
