5 foods and drinks that surprisingly have high sugar level

Several foods and drinks such as cereals and fruit juices are packed with sugar. Here are some foods and drinks that are surprisingly full of sugar. 

Fruit juices

Fruit juices contain natural sugars and very little fibre, that help improve sugar absorption. Therefore, opt for having fruits rather than drinking juice to reduce your sugar intake.


Honey contains a sugar called fructose, which is sweeter than sucrose or glucose. Therefore, it should be consumed in moderation.


Most of the cereals found in stores are processed and mixed with sugar and refined grains. Make sure to read the ingredients' composition on the packet before consuming cereals.


Ketchup is often loaded with sugar. 1 tbsp of ketchup can contain 7 percent or more of your daily consumption of sugar. Therefore, one must avoid excessive consumption of ketchup.


Jaggery is loaded with sucrose like all forms of sugar. It is not a safer alternative to sugar and should be consumed in moderation.
