We all theoretically know about the proven harmfulness of sugar. In practice, it turns out that we often exceed the daily dose recommended by dieticians. Not only our eating habits are vinegar, but also the fact that sugar, due to its preservative properties, is added to many other products, which we do not even know often. For the sake of your own health, it is good to replace white sugar, its healthier and less calorific counterparts. How to do it?
American scientists are alarming that sugar should be put on the list of dangerous substances on par with nicotine and alcohol. It has no nutritional value and is called "empty calories" for a reason.
Many people do not combine their health with diet at all. Meanwhile, this includes: excessive sugar intake can lead to such ailments as: hyperactivity, nervousness, irritation, difficulty with concentration, skin problems, indigestion, susceptibility to infection with yeasts and molds, or a feeling of constant fatigue.
Sugar sugar, however, is uneven. White, refined sugar, which we use at home to sweeten drinks, or baking cakes is certainly not a recommended food. However, we need natural sugar found in fruits and vegetables. In order to stay healthy, a reasonable compromise should be found between the dietitians' recommendations and their own preferences, such as sweet morning coffee or tea or a piece of cake. The solution can be sugar substitutes or the use of unrefined sugar.
Sugar is not always the same
Sugars from various parts of the world perfectly satisfy the thirst for sweet taste. They are full of vitamins especially from group B and rich in iron. Some of them are characterized by a unique, extremely original taste, typical of their country of origin. They blend well with the cuisine of the region. For example, unrefined, organic palm sugar from Indonesia fits perfectly into Thai cuisine. The sugar obtained from the coconut flower is also exotic as well as aromatic.
Natural sugars do not contain any additives (which are full of white sugar) and can be successfully used to sweeten cold and hot beverages as well as homemade cakes or cocktails. A wide range of sugar flavors from around the world is a great inspiration for your own culinary experiments and an opportunity to try dishes from around the world.
Sweet for health ...
The healthiest sweetener in the world is agave syrup. Much sweeter than traditional sugar, it is also distinguished by a high content of natural enzymes, minerals, fiber and insulin. For this reason, it can be used even by people with diabetes.
It is also worth reaching for natural cane sugar, which has a beautiful, golden color and a unique, caramel flavor. The pleasant, mild aroma is also distinguished by sugar beet syrup. It has the consistency of thick honey and a dark brown color. It is perfect for porridge, yogurt, muesli. It can also be used for baking. Beet syrup also contains a lot of minerals including calcium, iron, potassium, or magnesium.
... and for the benefit of the figure
People who care for the line can reach for xylitol. It contains more than 40% less calories than traditional sugar. What's more: it does not ferment in the digestive tract, so it is not conducive to the multiplication of yeast and mold. It can be used as a regular sugar, because even in color and consistency it resembles illusion.
