What are the differences between the sugars we use every day? Experts give advice that we should all know
Written by SOT.COM.AL 19 Tetor 2021
Those who are careful when reading food labels are probably familiar with terms such as "no sugar", "no added sugar" or "no added sweetener".
For the sake of truth these terms are confusing.
Regarding the role of sugar in our health, we must accept that sugar is not bad, as long as it comes from sources like fruits and vegetables.
Excess sugar in beverages and processed foods is harmful and should be consumed in limited quantities.
Scientists say that man should not consume more than 10 percent of added sugars per day.
If this rule is violated, the person faces heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
But back to the difference between "no sugar", "no added sugar" or "no added sweetener".
These sugars are found in fruits (fructose) and bylmet products (lactose.)
Fortunately, it is impossible for man to overdo it with such sugars because they are consumed with fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals.
Foods rich in these sugars like pineapple, banana or sweet potato are part of any healthy diet.
Processed foods, cakes and fizzy drinks contain the extra sugars needed to improve taste or texture.
Extra sugars are found in supermarket products such as processed honey, brown sugar, maple syrup, corn syrup and others.
Foods that are usually 'sold' as 'sugar-free' such as low-calorie drinks or other sweeteners such as sucralose, aspartame and saccharin.
According to scientists, a food is considered 'sugar free' as long as it contains 0.5 grams of sugar / ration.
It is very important to be careful with the number of servings of a food because despite being described as 'sugar free' it can still contain small amounts of sugar.
Although a product may be labeled 'sugar free', this does not mean that it does not contain added sugars or artificial sweeteners.
Për shembull mund të vëreni produkte si çamçakizi, shurupet, kompostot, reçeli i frutave dhe ëmbëlsirave të ndryshme.
Produktet pa sheqer të shtuar
Ky term nuk do të thotë se një ushqimi të caktuar nuk i është shtuar sheqer.
Është e gjitha një lojë fjalësh sepse ai mund të përmbajë sheqerna natyralë, sheqerna artificialë dhe ëmbëlsues të tjerë.
Këtë term mund ta gjeni në produkte si gjalpi i kikirikut, lëngu i frutave, prevedetë, konservat e të tjerë.
Produkte jo të ëmbëlsuara
Nëse e shikoni këtë term në etiketën e një ushqimi të caktuar, duhet të dini se ky term shpjegon që ushqimi nuk përmban sheqerna të shtuar apo ëmbëlsues artificialë.
Por kjo nuk do të thotë që ky ushqim nuk përmban sheqer.
Shembuj të produkteve të tilla mund të gjeni tek qumështi i bajames, qumështi i arrës së koksit, salca e mollës, çaji i ftohtë e të tjerë.
Which of these alternatives do you think is the best choice for health?
According to AgroWeb.org none of them are valid.
Products without sugar, unsweetened or without added sugars can not be selected on the basis of sugar alone.
They should also be selected based on the entire nutritional profile which should include fiber, protein, minerals and vitamins.
Although unsweetened foods sound best, AgroWeb.org recommends choosing natural sources of sugar such as fruits and vegetables./AgroWeb.org
