The Difference Between Nature Sugar Vs Added Sugar Story

We all know that sugar isn’t good for us. However, there are different types of sugar in the foods you eat. Here I explain the differences between natural sugar vs. added sugar,! 

Sugar is an ingredient we all know that we should eat sparingly — too much is never good. But there are actually two very different types of “sugar”: naturally occurring sugars and added sugar.

Added sugar includes any sugars or sweeteners that are added to foods during processing or preparation (such as putting sugar in your coffee, or eating flavored yogurt).

Below are some of the other names for added sugar.   -Agave syrup – Barley Malt – Brown Sugar – Cane Juice – Cane Sugar – Caster Sugar – Coconut Sugar

Different Names For Added Sugar

Fruit Has Natural Sugars

How Much Natural Sugar Should I Eat In A Day?

I recommend 2-3 servings of fruit per day for most healthy adults; and for dairy, as long as you’re choosing plain, unsweetened dairy like regular milk, plain yogurt, cheese, etc. the lactose is not bad for you.

The kind of sugar that you want to limit in your diet are the added sugars — since these sugars provide unnecessary calories and no helpful nutrients
