What is sugar?

Sugars, or saccharides, are a short common name for all simple carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates are present in food products or are formed in the body after the processing of complex carbohydrates (polysaccharides, starch).

Simple carbohydrates include:

Sucrose – it consists entirely of sugar, which is made from sugar cane and sugar beets.

Glucose – grape sugar, dextrose. Found in fruits and vegetables (pumpkin, carrots), berries, honey and plant inflorescences.

Fructose is fruit sugar. Found in fruits and honey.

Galactose is part of milk sugar (lactose). Contained in milk.

Maltose is malt sugar. Obtained from sprouted grains (malt) of barley, rye, and other grains.

Natural and added sugars:

All sugars that we get from food are divided into natural (contained in unprocessed foods) and added during processing.

As Medicalforum wrote, if you can’t refuse candy, then eat it in the morning, and not in the evening, advises endocrinologist Zuhra Pavlova. The activity of the hormone insulin in the body changes depending on the time of day. The more it is stimulated, the greater the process of fat formation, the doctor emphasized. And eating sweets in the evening is precisely the stimulation of insulin synthesis.
