How do I calculate added sugar if the item also contains natural sugar like fruit?

  • For instance, a bar that contains dried fruit and nuts. It may say 17g of sugar but what is the actual added sugar and what is the sugar from the fruit?

    I don't know how you would seperate the added suger from the naturally occuring sugar, but so that this isn't an issue I eat Lara Bars. They are all fruit and none of the evil 6, including added sugar.

      I looked again while I was at the store today. I guess it's the ones with chocolate that might have added sugar???

      I looked at the ones I bought and all of the fruit and nuts bars have no added sugar, so yes I'd have to say, stay away from the chocolate. Phew that was a relief, I thought I'd missed something on the label, i would have been really disappointed.
