Harmful Food Ingredients

Some of the ingredients lurking in our foods do not provide nutrition and are not beneficial to our health . . . some are downright harmful!

Some harmful ingredients are added to food to improve texture, flavor, add artificial sweetness, and/or to have an addictive effect - It is to your benefit to be able to identify these additives, be aware of the effects they have on your body, and then make a conscious choice to avoid products containing them.

Some food ingredients may be beneficial in moderation, but are detrimental when taken to excess - E.g. caffeine, fructose, glucose, alcohol;

In moderation this simple sugar benefits health, but in excess (>25g /day –equivalent to a few pieces of fruit/day), fructose causes metabolic syndrome - which is involved in such problems as high blood pressure, weight gain, abdominal obesity, decreased HDL, increased LDL, elevated triglycerides, elevated blood sugar, INSULIN resistance, all underlying factors in Type 2 Diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Fructose is found in:

Sodas -a regular sized can of non-diet soda supplies 23g fructose, a super sized 63g

Honey - 70% fructose

Agave nectar (a cleverly marketed highly processed sap, containing from 56-92% fructose, depending on manufacturer)

High-fructose corn syrup - ~55% and higher fructose

Table sugar (sucrose) - ~50% fructose

Maple syrup - ~48% fructose

Fruit with highest fructose grams consumed in certain fruit –Eg. raisins, mango (32g fructose), and fruit juices (E.g. Orange Juice);
