Does your body process different sugars differently (eg. Glucose, fructose, sucrose, lactose, etc.)?

All are equal to 4 calories / gram. ...Read more

Read that Sucrose has very low GI compared to glucose. When sugar breaks in body, only glucose gets absorbed to bloodstream. So sucrose better sweetener?

Read that Sucrose has very low GI compared to glucose. When sugar breaks in body, only glucose gets absorbed to bloodstream. So sucrose better sweetener?

Better =?: Glycemic index (GI) is how fast a food raises your blood sugar, i.e. the glucose level in your blood. Sucrose has a lower GI than glucose, AND sucrose tastes sweeter than glucose. Also, higher GI is generally considered less healthy. So, I’d have to agree that sucrose is a “better” sweetener than glucose. Note: sucrose is still pretty bad, from a GI standpoint, just not as bad as glucose. ...Read more

My 8.5 mo daughter is on formula and begun solid foods. Can we feed her formula with added sucrose? Adding sugar to simple starch, any implications?

My 8.5 mo daughter is on formula and begun solid foods. Can we feed her formula with added sucrose? Adding sugar to simple starch, any implications?

Please don't do it: Adding sugar to formula will only cause trouble. Formula is made to address the needs of infants. If babies have additional caloric requirements or starch needs, it isn't accomplished with sucrose. Adding sugar will cause not only weight gain but will also cause dental trouble, even if the baby has no teeth yet. Other metabolic consequences may also occur. Please discuss with pediatrician. ...Read more

Can I use pure fruit juice/juice concentrate to sweeten dishes so as to avoid bad effect of sugar? Is the fructose, glucose in fruit better than sucrose

Can I use pure fruit juice/juice concentrate to sweeten dishes so as to avoid bad effect of sugar? Is the fructose, glucose in fruit better than sucrose

Not really...: Sugar is sugar. That's why people who are avoiding sugar should not drink fruit juice. They are usually ok with eating small servings of fruit. Processed foods from the store that say "naturally sweetened with juice" and use grape juice (or another juice) are bad like products using sucrose. The best thing to do is to train oneself to enjoy unsweetened or only slightly sweetened foods and drinks. ...Read more

Does sweetener zero calories contain lactose sucrose leucine crosscarmellose sodium which is diet sweetener effect on triglycerides like sugar?

Does sweetener zero calories contain lactose sucrose leucine crosscarmellose sodium which is diet sweetener effect on triglycerides like sugar?

Sweeteners: Don't have calories, I agree. The trouble is that our taste mechanism is made up of 6 stimulants--- sweet, sour bitter, salt, astringent, and metal. All god made food provides flavor from permutations and combinations of the 6. A single sweet input provides a jolt of pleasure that is addictive. It is brain signals that govern our ability to adapt to our environment. We need to obey diet rules. ...Read more
