Sucrose, sucrose , cane or the most widely-known so-called. The "white gold", ie sugar . This fresh illustrators, as well as the infamous ravinnoton nutrient - which is, unfortunately, a large part of our food culture - has been, is, and will be an interesting topic of discussion in today's society. Why this is the case, what this particular nutrient medium is so unique that most of us silently to know this when eating to do something, the effect of which is almost useless or even harmful to our health, but we neglect the practice?
Sweetness history to be most helpful to understand the history of sugar . Sweetness itself is meant in the history of the human source of energy. We made use of natural ingredients, such as honey and dates, for thousands of years. Honey is old, found in Spain, cave paintings, the oldest we use sweet food? for finishing in about 12,000 years of history. Since then, honey has been used in baking, for making mead and for cleaning wounds. At first, we used only natural honey of wild bees' nests, and later began to build up the bees honey to capitalize on a more regular basis, as we do today.
Sugar, which arrived in Europe around the year 1100, spread to wider use in practice until the 1700s, and only the rich could afford it. They used the "white gold" to sweeten food and as a medicine. Both of these uses mentioned match still to this day, although the latter is not necessarily the case that the individual consciously, or any medically approved point of view. Namely, in addition to Seek fresh happy to create the ants could ever, the fact is that it is easier to ask the question "What food does not contain sugar" as "which includes"? Today is not easy to escape the sugar in various forms, but it is also not the impossibility of any explanation or justification.
With the exception of honey and dates, so about 400 years ago, we had no other so-called. processed, that is, the rapid carbohydrate sources. We ate mostly natural, structurally complex, or slow carbohydrate sources. These slow carbohydrates along with natural oils and fats, protein and fiber provided with a relatively long-lasting energy in support of our everyday. This kind of diet aid well-being, "the old days" and supports / support to this day.
About 100 years ago, people spent an average of about four pounds (1.8kg) of refined sugar per year. This means that about five grams of sugar per day. Modern American and -britti consume an average of about 160 pounds (72,6kg) refined sugar per year, which is the same as 198g a day! I think almost unbelievable figure, a small raejuustopurkin weights. Reporting news of the Finnish Broadcasting Company Euromonitor research to inform the Finnish consuming about 92g of sugar per day. 92 grams in sharing four meals, we get the result 23g per meal. American consumption is according to Euromonitor 126 grams of classes a day, so we are moving in any case, very high levels comparisons to figures for the relatively short history of sugar consumption. Developing countries do not necessarily spend just as much, but they do not have much behind. ( Http://www.pronutritionist.net/nain-sokerin-kulutus-on-muuttunut-suomessa/ )
In the following example, an influential party visualization of sugar in the recommended amount an individual basis. NOTE! The next recommendation also includes a "free sugars" ( Carrot = 5, 4% free, its own fruit sugar), which is not only a refined table sugar.
WHO / World Health Organisation recommendation : ' intake of free sugars should be less than 10 per cent of energy per day (<50 grams per 2000 kcal of energy level ) " .
Another specifically mentioned in the so-called. conditional (not completely obligatory / optional) increase in the previous include ... "The free sugars restriction <10 E% consisting of the recommendations of good reasons for obesity in perspective. A further reduction in free sugars to less than five per cent of the daily energy intake should be in addition to the benefit of the health of the teeth. " In short, the less refined sugar, so it better!
