A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down – but why do we need the medicine in the first place?
As we become more health conscious as a nation, it’s easy to begin counting calories and paying attention to our caloric intake. The reality, though, is that the quality of those calories and the food we eat is just as important, but you rarely hear anyone discussing our intake of sugar.
Exceeding the recommended sugar intake, which almost all of us do, can lead to serious health consequences such as heart disease. So how much sugar is too much? The recommended daily intake for women is no more than 5 teaspoons and 9 teaspoons for men. Children should have no more than 3 teaspoons. To put this into perspective, a single can of cola would surpass all of these recommendations. And we’re not even talking about any desserts, dressings, carbohydrates, or any other sources of sugar. Yikes!
Now, it’s important to note that not all sugar is bad, as sugar naturally occurring in fruits and vegetables with fiber and micronutrients can actually be healthy for you. It’s the added processed sugar in our diet that has the potential to do harm.
No wonder so many people are searching for sugar free flavored syrup! But not all sugar free flavored syrup options are created equally. Remember, quality matters when it comes to beverage ingredients and the calories we consume. While excess sugar is bad, so are artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners, and artificial colors.
