The Truth About Sugar | Accent by Chubb

  1. 1. The Truth About Sugar Find the right balance in your daily diet.
  2. 2. Remember how fat was vilified in the 1980s, and a trend toward fat-free foods had people using salad dressings, cookies and other foods with more sugar and salt to compensate for the lost taste? Well, now the latest villain in the health wars is sugar. Among other things, it’s been blamed for non- alcoholic fatty liver disease (a disease caused by overloading the liver with fructose); insulin resistance, the gateway to diabetes; sugar addiction; heart disease; and even cancer.
  3. 3. A study last year from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that the average American diet contains enough added sugar to increase the risk of heart-related death by nearly 20 percent. Of course, it’s impossible to give up on all sugar. After all, many of the sugars we eat naturally occur in foods. And humans are hardwired to like sweets (after all, science tells us that carbs stimulate the release of feel-good serotonin in our brains).
  4. 4. On the other hand, though it may seem like sugar is being singularly targeted, the American Heart Association (AHA) does say that we’re eating and drinking far too much sugar right now. In fact, the latest studies show Americans consume about 20 teaspoons—almost a half-cup—of added sugar each day, in contrast to the AHA’s recommendation of six teaspoons per day for women and nine for men. All that sugar adds up to an average of 152 pounds of sugar per year for most Americans.
  5. 5. According to the CDC study, about 37 percent of the added sugar in our diets comes from sugar- sweetened beverages. One 12-ounce can of regular soda contains nine teaspoons of sugar; that one can is the AMA’s recommended max for men. Other obvious culprits, of course, are cakes, pies and dairy desserts, but added sugar can be found in many foods that aren’t thought of as sweets, such as bread, ketchup, “healthy” breakfast cereals and yogurt, which can come with as much sugar as candy.
  6. 6. To give some perspective on how to visualize a gram of sugar on a nutrition label, about ¼ teaspoon constitutes a gram. So each teaspoon of sugar you add to your coffee, for instance, is four grams. And as most know, sugars such as high-fructose corn syrup and brown rice syrup may sound healthy, but in fact they’re almost chemically and nutritionally identical to table sugar. (Corn syrup is cheaper to make than sugar, which is why it appears on so many labels.) When you’re checking ingredient labels, perhaps the simplest hack is looking out for ingredients that end in –ose.
