Switching from refined sugar to sugar substitutes can be a great option for people with diabetes and those looking to lose weight. At the same time, it is necessary to know how such products can be dangerous.
- Sugar alcohols… These are carbohydrates that have the properties of both alcohol (but not that contained in alcohol) and sugar. Considered low in calories. At the same time, there is a possibility that you will not buy a natural product. It is also dangerous to abuse them, as they act as a laxative and in large quantities contribute to the occurrence of flatulence, bloating.
- Coconut sugar… In terms of calories, this sugar is identical to regular sugar. Therefore, you need to remember about the likelihood of gaining extra pounds.
- Allulose (psychosis)… This substitute, as the author writes, generally has a positive effect on the entire body, helps prevent obesity and increase life expectancy.
