8 Healthy Foods With Ridiculously High Sugar Content

April 13, 2015 2 min read

Everyone that tries to eat clean knows that artificial sugars are a big no no in your diet plan. New studies have shown from the World Health Organization people saying that should cut their sugar intake to just six to 12 teaspoons per day (A can of soda contains more than that!) This means that even foods that are considered healthy, can put us over our recommended sugar threshold for the day. And the culprits are....


Yogurt is absolutely healthy - but only the plain kind. The fruit flavoured ones may be all kinds of taste - but they're loaded with upwards of 4 teaspoons of sugar.

Salad Dressing

You may think that because you chose salad over the burger you made the right choice, but if you're drowning it in dressing, you could be voiding your sacrifice. Many dressings are loaded with sugar. For example: Kraft creamy french dressing contains 1 and a half teaspoons of sugar per serving! Try making your own at home instead

Granola Bars

Nature Valley Honey and Oats bars have a whopping  3 tablespoons of sugar in just one package! This is definitely one category where you really need to look at your ingredients. High sugar contents from healthy brands (like Luna Bars) can come from unrefined sources such as dates and raw unsweetened cocoa and, in that case, are totally fine for you.

Pasta Sauce

Most mainstream brands are incredibly sneaky when it comes to sugar: Prego’s traditional sauce, has 2 teaspoons of sugar, while Bertolli’s Tomato & Basil has 3 teaspoons. Be sure to read the labels and look for sauces with no added sugar when you're grocery shopping.

Peanut Butter

I'm sorry to do this to you but most of your favourite childhood brands (including Jif and Skippy) have about 2 teaspoons of sugar per serving. The good news? There are plenty of all natural, no sugar added options out there for all you peanut butter lovers.

Coffee Drinks

We talk about food but have you considered what you put in your coffee at home or when you're out? Bad news Starbucks lovers - a tall, nonfat mocha latte from Starbucks has 7 teaspoons of sugar in a cup, while a tall, nonfat Chai latte will set you back 8 teaspoons. If thats your only sugar intake for the day - go nuts; otherwise stick to normal coffee.

Flavoured Waters

Soda isn't your only enemy on the sugar train. Vitamin Water contains more than 8 teaspoons of added sugar in a 20 oz bottle, while Snapple Green Tea has over 7 teaspoons in a 16-ounce bottle. You're better off just sticking to plain old water.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct!
