I'm almost done with my whole 30 (currently on Day 30. Feeling great results. I realized a brand of salsa I bought nine days ago has sugar listed as it's ninth ingredient (three are 13 ingredients). I usually use 1-2 tablespoons (2 tablespoons are in a serving) a day and the nutrition info lists one gram of sugar per serving (which I think some of that sugar comes naturally from the tomato and tomato paste). At the most I am getting 1g of added sugar a day. Is that enough to stop my metabolism from healing?
I will be sure never to buy that salsa again.

There are much more important things to worry about than <= 1g of added sugar in 2tbsp of salsa. :-)
Next time, make the salsa yourself or just buy a brand without any added sugar.
As a side note: "fruity salsa" like a spicy mango salsa, will undoubtedly have added sugar as fruit puree, but in those cases, you're sort of getting what you'd expect to get.
