How many sugars?

Best Bite drinks contain no added sugar and no more than 1 gram of saturated fat and 150 calories. Best Bite foods contain no added sugar and no more than 2 grams of sat fat and 140 milligrams of sodium. And any grain they have is whole. Best Bites are free of the poorly tested artificial sweetener acesulfame potassium.

Caffeine: Only Starbucks listed numbers on its Web site. Sugar: For drinks, we estimated the amount of added sugar. For foods, we listed total sugar since it's not always possible to calculate how much is added and how much occurs naturally in the ingredients. With sweets, most of the sugar is added.

Within each section, items are ranked from least to most saturated fat, then calories, then sugar or sodium.
