We are in world of Marketing where Foods are supposed to “LOOK Healthy” and not be really healthy as food producer add fillers to get their cost down by compromising on the healthy ingredients.
Whats this Marketing Gimmick which has caught us? Our Team will help on foods to avoid to lose weight.
1.”No added Sugar”
We pick the product thinking it does not have sugar and sometimes gift the same to our elderly who are suffering from Diabetes. What this line really mean is the Direct Sugar is not added to your product but anything which contain sugar(Ex-Compound Chocolate containing sugar is added in sugar free cookies) can be added thus indirect sugar is infused in the final product.
2.”Sugar Free” or “Zero Sugar“
This category of food are true to their claims. No Direct or indirect sugar is been added to the product. But whats the problem with this? The Sugar replacement like Maltitol or Maltodextrin or FOS or Sucralose or Aspartame is used to sweeten the product.
Maltitol ,Maltodextrin & FOS are High in GI like Sugar thus act the same way as Sugar whereas Sucralose and Aspartame are low in GI but there complex structure
is so complex to out gut that they dont get digested in our gut and also kills the good bacteria making it worst then sugar.
