Hidden Sweeteners: You could be consuming more than you realize.

It's nice to treat yourself every once in a while with a sweet snack. Everything in moderation, right? But what if your daily sugar intake is a lot higher than you think?
According to the American Heart Association, the daily sugar intake for adult males should be less than 36 gram (9 teaspoons) and less than 25  grams (6 teaspoons) for females. These numbers seem reasonable  if you're not reaching for ice cream, and cookies on a daily basis. However, many products on grocery store shelves that seem healthy are actually chock-full of sugar. 

Sugar content for common food items (on average per serving)

Salsa 4g
Flavored instant oatmeal 14g
Granola 7g
Sports drink 21g
Ketchup 4g
Pasta sauce 8g
Greek yogurt 14g
Protein bar 21g

To help monitor sugar intake, pay attention to food labels. Try to avoid foods high in fructose, sucrose, glucose, corn syrup, and cane sugar. Consume in moderation such items as organic cane sugar, agave or honey. Even though it may sound healthier, sugar is sugar, no matter what form it comes in.
