Sugar is part of our diet, something we need in our diet but something we often have too much of.
here are lots of different words for it – but they all mean one thing - SUGAR
Corn syrup, dextrin sucrose
fructose, FRUIT SUGAR, agave syrup,
glucose/fructose syrup, Glucose.
Sugar, particularly in its refined form, sucrose, has a big impact on the body and its ability to function to full capacity.
Refined sugar causes a sharp increase in the glucose level in our blood which then causes the body to work hard to reduce it again. It can also interfere with the body’s ability to absorb proteins and can change their structure so altering the way they act in our bodies.
By decreasing refined sugar intake we can increase our emotional stability which in turn will boost our health and wellbeing.
Not all sugar is bad. It’s just a case of knowing how best to eat them and in what context. The recipes contained in this book contain natural fruit sugars, which when eaten whole (not just as juice) with the pulp and fibre of the fruit itself, slow down the digestion and absorption of the sugars.
