Is Sugar in Fruit Different Than Sugar in Soda?


If you look at a cookie or a soda versus an
apple, you can be less concerned about the sugar in an apple. There’s a lot of other
things besides just fructose. All sorts of bio active compounds, some of them probably
haven’t even been discovered yet, that do positive things to our health. The soda and
the sugar sweetened beverages have pretty much only one thing in them and that’s the
sugar. From many, many epidemiological studies, we do know that the people who eat the most
fruit are the healthiest and have least risk for metabolic disease. The other thing is,
you have to eat a lot of fruit to consume a comparable amount of sugar as is in three
cans of soda. Or two cans of soda and two cookies. Chances are you’re not going to be
able to overeat fruit to the point you’re going to have a high sugar diet just from
fruit. Unless you eat a lot of honey, it’s actually heard to be on a high fructose diet
if you are depending on nature only to get your fructose.
