Do you really know? To be able to answer that question you need to know what sugar really is. As it comes in many disguises. To start with, Sugar has 55 names.  So you are not really to blame that you are not able to give an answer to the above question.  You can find sugar in cookies, sweets but also in sauces, ready-made-meals, breakfast cereals, fruityoghurts etc.

Natural sugars are found in fruit. These sugars are healthier than refined sugars, as the body can burn them quicker and therefor they will nog make your sugarlevels peak. But watch out. Natural sugars are also sugars.
