One time when you actually cite the grams of sugar in a recipe, you lie! There are 4.36 gr of sugar in each tablespoon of hoisin sauce, therefore in this recipe, which calls for 2 tablespoons, there are almost 9 grams of sugar! Did you never wonder why hoisin sauce tastes so sweet? (And I didn't even look up any of the other ingredients, but I know there is sugar in carrots and peas.)
