VIDEO: Hidden Sugar in Your Foods
Sugar often hides in surprising places.
While anyone can tell you that candy bars or sodas are full of the sweet stuff, foods such as baked beans, hot and spicy McChicken sandwiches and muesli are loaded with sugar, too.
In fact, sometimes these foods are the worst culprits. In the video above, you learn that muesli has more sugar than Fruit Loops, and that a glass of orange juice will spike your insulin levels higher than a can of Coca Cola.
Diet foods can be dangerous, too. For instance, a serving of light ranch has 32 grams of sugar, while regular ranch only has 16 grams.
