3 Secretly Sugary Foods To Toss Out Of Your Pantry


We all know that consuming too much sugar is bad for teeth. It may even be linked to an increase in caries or cavities. So limiting the amount of cocktails and candies in your life is clearly a good choice.

However, there are a few foods that are often overlookedand, worse yet, considered by a fair few to be “healthy” choices.

1. Flavored Yogurt

Yogurt can indeed be great for your smile, but there is a bit of fine print. You have to go for a choice that is not loaded with “extras”, i.e. jelly, candied nuts, etc.

Why not opt for a plain option and toss on some fresh fruit to add a bit of flavor? You can also sprinkle on shredded coconut bits!

2. Spaghetti Sauce

Yup! Many brands seem to sneak sugar into their recipes. Be sure to double-check the nutritional facts before you buy (and don’t just rely on the front label). Or you can whip up your own at home with raw ingredients.

3. Peanut Butter

Sure, it’s protein-packed, but it often comes with added sweeteners and fillers too! The good news is that more and more companies have begun to address this issue, so it is usually possible to find a suitable pick, if you keep your eyes peeled.

Hope this helps!
