Low Sugar Diet and Dried Fruits

If you're opting to go on a low sugar diet, dried fruits may not be the best suitable choice for you.

Dried fruit is a great snack as long as you're aware of how much of it you are eating. It's packed with nutrients but the drying process removes the water and concentrates a lot of the sugar in a small bite.

Milk Isn't Added Sugar

Milk Isn't Added Sugar

If you love milk in your coffee or tea, the good news is milk isn't considered as added sugar because it has it's own natural sugar you may or may not know as lactose.

Milk isn't as overwhelming to the liver as added sugar would be. However, if you drink milk from soy or nuts, check the label because many of those products contain added sugar.

Orange Juice Is Heavy In Sugar

Orange Juice Is Heavy In Sugar

Drinking it in the morning is a poor choice because it will give you a morning sugar spike and will cause you to crash midday or in the early afternoon.

Although it is a natural food, the juicing process of it takes out much of the fiber and concentrates on the sugar content. Have it as a weekly treat instead and opt for iced water with orange wedges to keep the citrus in your daily routine.

Check your Oats

Many brands of oats have added sugar in them so it's always best to check the label for zero grams of sugar.

  • Steel cut oats are the least processed. They have more fiber in them and are usually the best choice for oats.
  • Rolled oats are partially cooked and it can increase your blood sugar levels pretty quickly.
  • Instant oats should be avoided because your digestive track will absorb them so fast that it can cause a sugar rush.

Added Sugar vs. Natural Sugar

Added Sugar vs. Natural Sugar

  • Added sugar is unfriendly to our health. It can be found in most food products we come across. It is absorbed by the body quicker unlike natural sugar.
  • Processed food is digested quickly as soon as it enters out intestine while fiber-rich foods break down slowly and travel farther down the digestive track making us feel fuller.
  • Foods containing natural sugar and fiber allow the body to feed the healthy bacteria in our gut and supports the health of our own microbiome.

Nutrition Labels Should Indicate Added Sugar

In 2020, most large food makers are asked to list their "added sugar" on the nutrition facts label and they have been required to do so.

Smaller companies are not exempted from the requirement but are given until 2021 to comply. This rule will help consumers to figure out the natural sugars from the added sugar.
