Is The Sugar In Fruit Good Or Bad For You!!!

I believe the consumption of fruit can be advantageous. Once you eat up a fruit, you are not just consuming fructose, however, you are also consuming fiber and also a lot of minerals and vitamins. Indeed, fruits can have an effect on your blood sugar levels.


Sugar in fruit is not harmful to us. As a matter of fact, fruits contain a natural sugar- fructose, which is beneficial for you should you have diabetes. This is due to the fact the body digests fructose less quickly compared to it does to sucrose or table sugar. Due to the slower digestion, fructose does not result in the same high glycemic swings as other kinds of sugars. In the year 2008, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN) recommended diabetes patients to make use of fructose instead of sucrose based on research.

Few fruits contain adequate sugar to make them unhealthful.

Look at this as a 20-ounce bottle of soda made up of about 240 calories, 65g of added sugar, (typically high-fructose corn syrup), and also few nutrients. However, a cup of strawberries has 50 to 60 calories, approximately 7g of natural fructose, 3g of fiber, as well as lots of vitamin C and minerals- all healthy for you.

However, you do have to watch which fructose you are Consuming. There is natural fructose and also high-fructose corn syrup. The second is not natural and will result in your blood sugar to increase. This is something you must look out for when purchasing can fruit. Much of it is packaged in that high-fructose corn syrup. If it does not state packed in natural juices, buy your fruit either fresh or perhaps frozen as an alternative.

Few fruits high in sugar are below:

Banana

Mangos

Grapes

Figs

Cherries

Pomegranates

One must keep an eye on how much sugar he or she are consuming, even though it is a fruit that largely has fructose. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends up to 24 grams of sugar on a daily basis for females and also 36 grams for males. However, you can surpass that if you do not make the appropriate selections. For instance, 1/8 cup of sliced bananas has 30 grams of sugar independently. If you add the sugar you got from the rest of your food; you're probably far above what you should be eating daily.


Why is excess sugar bad for you?

It brings about metabolic dysfunction. Overeating sugar leads to a barrage of symptoms referred to as classic metabolic syndrome. These include abdominal obesity, weight gain, decreased HDL (High-density lipoproteins) and also increased LDL (low-density lipoprotein), increased blood sugar, increased triglycerides, and also high blood pressure. It also increases your uric acid levels.

Apparently, as we've known since the old school days, it can cause tooth decay. However, it also causes weight gain and also increases the triglycerides in the blood stream. Which has been shown to maximize your risk for high cholesterol, heart disease and also stroke

Types of Sugar That Is Good For You
1. Stevia.
2. Honey
3. Coconut Sugar
4. Brown Sugar
5. Raw Cane Sugar
6. Granulated White Sugar etc.


Bananas, Strawberries, Mangoes, oranges, kiwi, etc., Fruit is touted as a super-healthy snack alternative, but while the fiber, as well as other nutrients present in fruit, are a significant part of any diet, lots of varieties can also be extremely high in sugar.

Excessive sugar, no matter where it comes from, can have some severe adverse consequences. However, it might be smart to reduce your fruit-based sugar intake.

Typical Nigerian daily source of sugar per meal

Breakfast:
Bread. .....200g of sugar
Beans or akara.....120g of sugar
Tea (from added sugar and milk).... 100g of sugar

Snack before lunch
Biscuit .................150g

Lunch
Eba , fufu. Amala or garri with soup ....approx. 360g of sugar
Bottle of soda....200g of sugar

Dinner
Rice. ..........300g of sugar (about 20 tbsp of boiled rice)
Spaghetti
Beans
Plantain (ripe , fried or boiled) 200g of sugar

So, on average Nigerians consume about 1600g (1.6kg) of sugar daily . But the recommended amout is 25g for women and 36g for men.

Now you know why diabetis, cardio vascular disease and hbp is so common

The human body runs on sugar. Natural sugars are harmless generally.

Only processed sugars are harmful.

It depends.

If u are diabetic it's best to stay away from sugary fruits.

If not, eat in moderation.

Too much of the sugar from fruits can be bad. Just eat them in moderation. That's why vegetables are always better to consume regularly.
