While it varies on the type of dressing (oil based or cream based), salad dressings are just one of those food items you just don’t think much about… especially when you’re eating something as healthy as a salad.
However, did you know salad dressings like Italian or vinaigrette can contain up to 10 grams of sugar per serving? The best thing you can do is either make your own salad dressing (using lemon juice and just a little bit of salt and oil) or cut back on how much you douse your salad with.
When it comes to soup, we’re usually more concerned about the sodium count more than anything. While the sugar count might be lower (compared to sodium), the average canned tomato soup can contain up to 13 grams of sugar per serving.
We can’t deny how delicious fruit juices are but they’re actually really high in sugar.
According to researchers, fruit juices can sometimes have as much sugar as a can of soft drink. While it might contain plenty of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, the fibre content lowers when a fruit has been juiced.
