9) Sauces

In the case the sauces contain a low amount of sodium, they are packed with high sugar content. That applies to all sauces and condiments worldwide, including America, India, Italy, and Mexico. The manufacturers can either choose to go big on salt and low on sugar or add a high amount of sugar and go low on salt.
So, you need to double-check the canned sauces label before purchasing them. To be on the safe side, simply cook your soup at home using fresh tomatoes, vegetables, and choice herbs.
All in all, the best way you can avoid consuming high levels of sugar and salt is to eat only home-cooked food. Fortunately, manufacturers and restaurants are adjusting to the increased demand for healthier meals by customers and are reinventing their ingredient sourcing process. Thus, through some research, you may be able to find a healthy alternative to homecooked meals. However, changing your salt and sugar consumption will mostly depend on you and requires discipline.
