65 masks of sugar

Everyone knows that too much sugar is bad for you. Almost everyone knows that sugar is as addictive as drugs and alcohol. We all love it for its sweet taste and ability to make us feel good. At the same time, we all hate it for the extra body pounds and diseases associated with its consumption.

Nowadays, sugar has rather a bad reputation, and therefore, it went into shadow by using different names. Some of them are self-explanatory, but some of them are quite confusing when it comes to product label reading.

Some types of sugar are worse than the others,

 For instance, fructose is more toxic for the liver and its excess consumption destroys the body by driving the development of liver fat, insulin resistance, weight gain, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, dementia, and diabetes.

Conscious choice starts with awareness. Learn all sugar names that are used by the producers to mask its content or concentration. We are generally overwhelmed with sugar, so choosing products with low sugar content is always a good choice for the healthy body. Ideally, limit added sugars to 5% of your total daily calories, which is equal to 6 teaspoons (25 grams) for an adult of normal body mass index (BMI).
