Unboxed: 10 low- or no-sugar snacks
Welcome to the latest edition of Unboxed, where Delicious Living's Senior Food Editor Jenna Blumenfeld reviews the latest natural food and beverage products that have crossed her desk.

What's causing this criticism of sugar? For one, many popular diets and eating patterns such as paleo, ketogenic and Whole30 preach the health benefits of consuming minimal added sugar. Plus, most health professionals agree that sugar is best consumed in minuscule quantities to stave off type 2 diabetes and inflammation-based diseases.
Natural food brands, such as these 10 smart companies, lead in formulating products with less than 5 grams of sugar per serving while still covetable and craveable.
