Sugar is a form of carbohydrate created in a variety of foods, together with fruits and vegetables. Since the beginning of agriculture and the industrial age ingesting of sugar has increased fast, leading to a wide-range of obesity and other sicknesses. Like carbohydrates, excessive eating of sugars can lead to type II diabetes, and also cancer. Here is the list of high sugar foods, you might inform 'healthy' however it turns out it has the highest sugar content that is harmful to our body.

Hovis Whole Meal Loaf

Perhaps the most unanticipated food on the list, a 40g serving of wholemeal bread is equivalent to half a teaspoon of sugar, and some bread contains a whole teaspoon.

Apples

"One apple a day, keeps doctors away" familiar, right? Fruit is scandalously full of sugar, and with 10g per piece, too much of apples is not that healthy.

Raisins

These dried fruits are in between 67 to 72 percent sugars commonly known as fructose and glucose.

A small box of 1.5 oz of "Sun-Maid" raisins has 129 calories, 0g fat, 34g carbs, 1g protein which is the carbohydrate equal to eight and a half teaspoons full of sugar.

Bran Flakes

Another shocking entry, Bran Flakes are 22 percent sugar, and any add-on like milk maximize the sugar content.

Heinz Tomato Soup

We love tomato ketchup, however behind it, is sugar. But tomato soup, often hyped as a healthy meal, reveals an equivalent of up to four tablespoons of unseen sugars.
