Prowling through the cereal aisle, you’ll quickly discover that nearly all store brand granolas have added sugar – brown sugar, honey, stevia, or granulated sugar are the most common culprits. This is a prime example of how many foods we consider to be healthy can actually be hiding sugar, like these.
