We are expanding our previous warning about the sodium in tomato sauces to warn that most sauces and condiments are high in sugar, too. Jarred or canned sauces and condiments from all over the world – American, Mexican, Asian, Indian, and Italian alike – can all pack a double whammy, so be sure to read your labels carefully.
You may notice that products specifically made with lower sugar have more salt to compensate, and vice versa. If all else fails, we encourage you to get creative at home. You will likely find that fresh herbs do a better job than salt and sugar to flavor sauces anyway.
