Of course the problem is that the actual amount of sugar is often hidden, so we can easily be consuming more sugar than we actually realize. So, to prove this point here are some foods that surprisingly have very high amount of sugar.

Milk

Milk is good for us thanks to the level of calcium that is in it, but it is also very high in sugar. In a typical serving you are looking at approximately 12g of sugar. Do yourself a real favor by limiting yourself to around one glass of milk per day or you are going to be able to get a large percentage of your daily intake of sugar just by drinking milk.

Coleslaw

So many people love coleslaw, but fewer people are aware of the amount of sugar that is in the average serving. If we use one cup as a serving size, then you can expect 3.5 teaspoons in each cup. This is surprising for a number of people as they are not aware of the sweetness in most varieties and do not think that the cheaper versions will be worse as this amount of sugar is pretty standard.

Flavored Yogurt

Greek yogurt is well known for being a healthy food, but for your own sake you should always buy the un-flavored option because flavored yogurt uses a lot of sugar in order to really get that taste going. In a typical pot you can expect around 20g of sugar and that really is sky high for such a small amount of yogurt.
