Sugar is the generalized name for sweet, short-chain, soluble carbohydrates, many of which are used in food. They are carbohydrates, composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. There are various types of sugar derived from different sources. Simple sugars are called monosaccharides and include glucose (also known as dextrose), fructose and galactose. The table or granulated sugar most customarily used as food is sucrose, a disaccharide. (In the body, sucrose hydrolyses into fructose and glucose.) Other disaccharides include maltose and lactose. Longer chains of sugars are called oligosaccharides. Chemically-different substances may also have a sweet taste, but are not classified as sugars. Some are used as lower-calorie food substitutes for sugar described as artificial sweeteners.
Hi I am Candice I graduated as a holistic nutritional practitioner from the College of Naturopathic Medicine in central London. My own health issue led me to study nutrition, as my change in my diet and mindset greatly improved my health….a great personal achievement. A mostly green diet leaves me feeling energized and enthusiastic for all that life has to offer. Seeing the results of clients eating habits change as well as their healthier relationship to food has inspired me to work with Nosh Detox to holistically improve families wellbeing. Geeta said it was an awesome idea!
