I eat a lot of canned baked beans. They taste great and can easily be microwaved so they make for a very quick meal.
Unfortunately they're somewhat high in sugar. But, they're also high in fiber.
Sugar is high GI but fiber is low GI so does the fiber cancel out the sugar?
Let me clarify what I meant. I meant does the fiber counteract the negative effects of sugar consumption (insulin spikes, etc).
I know that fiber can't actually make the sugar disappear or anything stupid like that.
Don't knock it till you try it.
Besides, anything sounds terrible when you say it like that.

BPA from those fucking cans cancels out the test in your body
the way those are manufactured, they fucking boil the shit inside the can with the plastic coating, it's crazy.
Watch out for the BPA OP.
It's found in pretty large quantities in stuff like what you're eating and ravioli. Something about the fat and sodium content retaining it
Yes it does but don't eat that poisonous processed shit.
For example, the fiber in fruits along with the other macro and micronutrients makes the sugar a non issue, but that stuff in your pic is crap dude.
The ingredients label is actually pretty tame other than the sugar.
1) Not everything in the food is in the ingredients label. As others have mentioned, the lining is a big issue, god knows what "natural flavors" contains, and there are many additives that are allowed to be unlisted if they fall below a certain concentration.
2) It's not just about what's added in that makes processed foods shit, but what's taken out. Fresh beans are full of micronutrients (remember, an estimated 60% of nutrients we eat are still undiscovered), but after cooking, mixing with other chemicals, treating, sterilizing, and sitting in a can for months or years, the vast majority of those are degraded. Hence why something like fresh spinach is chocked full of vitamins and nutrients but canned? Not so much.
I personally believe it's better. In a perfect world, we'd all eat nothing but grass-fed, fresh killed meat and farm fresh fruits and vegetables, but that's not possible. I don't always have time to cook beans so yes I'll eat a can of no sodium, no additive black beans a few times a week.
Rather than splitting hairs over whether or not sodium benzoate is harmful at the FDA approved levels, just recognize that stuff like Bush's Baked Beans Hot Pockets, Tombstone Pizza, Mountain Dew, cold cuts, etc. is trailer trash food designed to exploit poor dumb people and that you'll never make it not just physically but also mentally and spiritually, if you put garbage into your body just because it has sugar and a talking dog on the commercials.
OP, there is no universal "goodness" scale for food. Food that is "good" for you doesn't counteract food that is "bad" for you.
You can't eat a tonne of sugar and crappy fats and then balance it out with a salad. It is more complicated than that.
sempai-tachi, get a pressure cooker. Beautiful beans in 30 minutes. Control the contents of your diet, get the flavors and nutrient profile you want, it's deeply satisfying.
Holy fuck anon make a bean salad. Get a can of beans of your choice, a can of french cut string, tons of onions and garlic, tons of vinegar, olive oil, italian seasoning badda bing badda boom tasty fiber and protein.
