Pasta sauce with as much sugar as a Mars bar and soup as sweet as cider: We reveal how much of the white stuff is lurking in your favourite foods

Do you have any idea how much sugar you're eating? It's probably a lot more than you think.

As this shocking graphic reveals, millions of us are unwittingly eating everyday foods packed with sugar - and getting fatter in the process.

While some culprits, such as Coca-Cola and ice cream are well known (and used here for comparison purposes), there are many other less obvious foods - such as pasta sauce, soup and so-called healthy granola - that are loaded with the white stuff.

For example, a 500g jar of Dolmio bolognaise sauce contains more than six cubes of sugar - the same as a Mars bar.

And Heinz tomato soup is on par with Bulmer's cider in the sweetness stakes, with five cubes.
