The amount of calories obtained from added sugar, such as sugar, is preferably less than 10% of the total caloric intake.
However, not many modern people maintain this number. This is because added sugars such as sugar, honey, and plum green are included in many dishes, as well as carbonated drinks and sweets.
Added sugar refers to sugar deliberately added to food or beverages. Natural fruits also have sugars, but they are not added sugars.
U.S. health media’Berry Well Health’ has outlined ways to reduce added sugar intake.
◆Sweets = Try raisins or dates instead of candy, chocolate, or cookies when sweets are pulling. Sweet, but no added sugar. As a bonus, you can also get fiber and potassium.
◆ Beware of low fat = Let’s look at the ingredients table when buying salad dressings, peanut butter, etc. that reduce or eliminate fat. This is because added sugar is often added to compensate for the lost flavor while removing fat.
◆ Fruity Yogurt = Some products contain a small amount of fruit and a large amount of added sugar. It is advisable to buy plain yogurt and mix it with fruit.
◆ Canned fruit = syrup goes with the fruit. Raw fruits are best, and frozen fruits are better if you eat them for a long time. If it has to be canned, choose a product with 100% juice instead of syrup.
◆ carbonated drink = about 40g of sugar in a bottle. It is close to the recommended amount of 50g per day. Sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweet cafe lattes are no different. It is better to substitute bottled water or non-sugar tea.
