Foods and Beverages with Hidden Sugars 

Weight Loss: Names for sugar you may not know
Disguise: Names for sugar that you may not know
1. Soda - Everyone knows that soda is packed with sugar. A typical 20oz (600ml) soda contains 16 packet of sugar. Drinking one soda each day can shorten a white blood cell's telomere, which is often linked to human lifespan.

2. Refined or processed foods - White foods like white flour, white rice, and white pasta act like sugar in the body. They spike blood sugar but we don't think them as a sugar. We should substitute with better options like brown, or as they call it, whole-grain rice instead of white rice.

3. Packaged and processed foods - It is in bread, ketchup, salad dressing, pasta sauce, many labeled whole grain cereals, flavored or fruited yogurt (especially those with clusters), ready-to-eat foods (i.e. frozen meals, canned foods or pre-packaged snacks) BBQ, marinades and more. These foods are full of sugar but hidden by all sorts of name.
