In the first place it comes sugar that we get use daily in our life . There are some facts one should have to know about sugar that we are eating unconsciously . The very first thing is sugar and glucose are not same where as sugar . Sugar is also known as sucrose . It is a combined form of glucose and fructose called diasacchrides . In other words a single sugar is a combination two monosacchrides ( glucose and fructose ) . Some of the functions of the body is carried out with the help of blood contains gl. So blood needs certain sugar level or glucose level to perform it’s normal functions .
when the sugar enters in our small intestine there is enzyme called sucrase which split the combined form of sugar into two independent parts called glucose and fructose. which set on lever . Later liver transform the fructose into glucose , glycogen and fat . glucose provide energy for cells , where as chemical called glycogen is store in liver for later uses energy supplier . The glucose set in liver is transformed into glycogen Thus glucose get in blood which provide instant energy to our body cells that is why we feel energized to do our work.
Sugar is a basic unit of a energy that our body needs to perform it’s functions. In other words for our every action needs the support of glucose , for example for sleeping , breathing , walking , or doing some other physical activities.
All Plants are comprised of carbohydrates that is why sugar is found in tissues of plants so that fruits and vegetable get sweet taste . In our body structure glucose is found in the form carbohydrates .Mostly sugar is converted to carbohydrates by our digestive system to support our daily activities . Another fact is eating more sugar will release the hormone dopamine which makes us feel good that is why after eating chocolates we got tempt to eat o more chocolates. In a study it reports those who consume sugar more looks old as compare to those who less consume .
In other word those who with high blood sugar level looks old as compare to low blood sugar level .That is peoples with high blood sugar looks old than low blood sugar.
As general rule of thumb limit the use of sugar as possible as much . It is advise to consume sugar 7 to 10 table spoon for men and 6 to 7 table spoon for women daily. Use sugar of low calorie value that we brought from markets . There is a simple idea , for this check the nutritional label on food stuff and see which ends on “ose” ( glucose , fructose , lactose , dextrose , galactose etc ) which contains low calorie value .
Remember a energy drink can contains 15 – 17 teaspoon of sugar . Even you can use some substitute for sugar which contain low calorie value , such as stevia , natural sweetners , honey , maple syrup , molasses , monk fruit sweetner , xylitol . Do you know our brain needs sugar of 350 to 400 calorie value for it’s functioning .
It is better to avoid artificial processed food contain sugar without any nutrition but eat natural food such as fruits , vegetable , honey , dates etc contains some nutrition. It is better to use some sugar alternatives to protect your body from many diseases . palm sugar or honey is also a best alternative to sugar . Ok guys these are some facts about sugar that we are using unknowingly.

Now a days many food items are made from white flour which is nutrition less but peoples are not aware of it . for example Bread , pizza , burger , donuts , momos ,poratta are some of the items made from white flour . And also peoples make many tasty and crispy food items from white flour during festival season . Actually white flour made from wheat in other word the waste of wheat is called white flour .
If we closely look at the anatomy of a grain we can find three sections such as outer portion of the is called the bran which contain fiber , vitamin B minerals and proteins , most often subject to damage , then the middle one called endosperm contains carbohydrates , vitamin B and proteins.
The lower one is called the germ contains vitamin B, vitamin E , Antioxidants , trace minerals and healthy fats. The germ is the portion in which farmers used to fix on grain fields for the next grain harvest. In short grain contains healthy fats , antioxidant , minerals , proteins, vitamin B , vitamin E and fiber.
After refining wheat grains we get wheat flour , but after heavy refining and processin the wheat flour we get nutrient less white flour . The science of this is when wheat grain is used in refining process then it’s outer portion bran and lower portion grain get destroy and the middle portion endosperm is left .
These endosperm get damage after refining process that is refined flour does not contain endosperm so that the nutrient present in endosperm get loss. Peoples in village grind the wheat by hand in their home so that it’s nutrients get not loss than we get wheat flour from mills .
Refined white flour is danger to our stomach , heart , brain and intestine because after refining it contains not nutrients . Do you know nutrient less white flour is one of the cause of belly fat , acidity , fatty liver , tiredness , diarrhea and stomach ache. so avoid to buy white flour / atta (grain powder). Instead use some alternative flours against white flour .
