We all think that we always eat healthy because we don’t eat sugar.But in real it’s not like that because we should keep in mind that Sugar is in the air, because sugar is everywhere.Yes,many people might be confused if you would ask them about their sugar labels.You should remember that too much sugar intake is unhealthy for you.People get 400 calories from sugar per day.And I know that you eagerly want to know about hidden sugar label in your diet that you have everyday.Sugar is a simple carbohydrate since it is metabolized a lot easier.So that to be digested it doesn’t need any additional time.
I am here with some tips to help you to identify hidden sugar in you daily food labels.So here we go..
TIP-1:It’s important to check the no. of servings are there in each container. We should know that a big container has more than 2-3 servings which we don’t want to realize.But the fact is that but the number of sugar listed in only per serving.
TIP-2:Just prepare yourself to find hidden sugars labels in the ingredients list.Here I have a list for you:dextran,beet sugar, brown sugar, golden syrup, grape sugar,ethyl maltol, ffructose,corn syrup, date sugar,high-fructose corn syrup, cane sugar,barley malt, cane-juice crystals,buttered syrup,sugar, turbinado sugar,malt syrup, maltodextrin,fructose corn syrup, honey,xylitol,yellow sugar,raw sugar, refiner’s syrup,sorbitol, sorghum syrup, sucrose
TIP-3:Before using a product don’t forget to read the amount of sugars per serving that product contains.Realize that 1 teaspoon has 4 grams,it will help you to understand how much is too much.Remember a small container of blueberry yogurt contains 34-40 grams of sugar which means about 10 teaspoons!!Oh my god!! isn’t it too much??
Tip-4:Don’t forget to compare the number of sugar grams to the number of total carbohydrate grams.It’s good to buy those foods which contain at least one-third and less of their total carbohydrates coming from sugars.Our body system needs complex carbohydrates from unprocessed foods which is necessary but not the simple carbohydrates that the refined unhealthy foods contain.No need to think that you have all that cravings,develop diabetes, heart attack,suffer from candida and gain weight.
Tip-5:Don’t be fooled with the term “Reduced sugar” or “No added sugar” on the labels.The product can contain 25% less sugar according to the FDA( US Food and Drug Administration),this is what “Reduced sugar” meant to be and when the sugar isn’t added to the foods that naturally contain some sugar, like jams, jellies, tomato sauce,milk and other preservatives that “No added sugar” meant to be.
So if you want a healthy life then avoid eating the foods which contain much sugar.
