Which sauce contains the most sugar?

I posted a fun quiz over on my Facebook page recently.

Which of these 3 sauces contains the most sugar?

There were many guesses, a few arguments and lots of questions. Then finally Julie posted the correct answer “Just check the labels”

So simple.

Stop being shocked with how much sugar, calories, fat or carbs are contained in the food items you consume. Take 5 seconds to turn the label over and read for yourself. The amount of sugar is conveniently listed there under “sugars”. Who would have thought?? LOL

In case you were wondering, the correct answer is…


This post is not to say that sugar is evil, toxic or poison (or any other scary word you associate it with).

However most of us eat too much of it at times. The World Health Organisation recommends no more than 30 grams of added sugar per day.

Each to their own, but I would much prefer to “spend” my sugar budget on something much yummier than BBQ sauce.


This post is to encourage you to take 5 seconds to turn the packet over and have a quick look at what you are putting in to your body.
