Sugar has earned a bad reputation, while sometimes this is for good reason other times it is not. Sugar can be found in almost everything we eat ranging from fruit to desserts, bread and soda, to candy and processed foods. Sugar has been linked to all sorts of ailments and health conditions such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
It is almost impossible to avoid sugar, and nutritionists may actually caution against eliminating sugar from your diet completely as it is the major fuel source for cells and it has been found to help boost brain health. But it is worth noting that sugar comes in many forms, and this sugar is most likely not the sugar that comes to mind when you think sugar.
