Watch Out for These 6 Secret Sugar Traps at the Supermarket
After many years of hard work, you have finally managed to cut out drinking coffee with two spoons of sugar. Instead of iced tea and energy drinks, you stick to water and after lunch you skip the customary piece of chocolate. So why aren’t you losing weight? The answer is simple: Sugar is hidden in almost everything. Mainly in convenience foods, but also in many fitness products. The WHO (World Health Organization) warns against the dangers of high sugar consumption. It recommends consuming no more than 25 g of sugar a day – that is the same as 6 teaspoons or 8 cubes of sugar.
So, are you ready to expose these secret sugar traps?
One more tip before we begin: If you want to know how much sugar a product contains, look at the food label. The higher the substance is on the ingredients list, the more of it the product contains. If sugar is the first item on the list, then you should steer clear of it. Also, the sweet substance is hidden behind the words “high fructose corn syrup” and “brown rice syrup” – so keep your eyes peeled when grocery shopping.
