There are plenty of natural sources of sugar that you can enjoy, and the best thing is that they’re actually good for you...in moderation of course! Before we tell you where to find these healthy sources of sugar, first we we need to explain what makes sugar good or bad. There are two types of sugar, naturally occurring sugar and added sugar. Natural sugar is found in lots of different foods, from fruit and vegetables to dairy products like milk. Added sugar can be anything from the sugar you use in tea and coffee (sucrose) to the sugar added to processed food and concentrated fruit juices. According to the World Health Organisation, out of your daily calorie intake only 5% should come from added sugars. To put this into context that’s approximately seven teaspoons (35g) for men and five teaspoons (25g) for women. Sugar however is an essential part of your daily diet as it provides the carbohydrates your mind and body need to function. Take a look at our RDA infographic to find out more about what your body needs each day. The problem with added sugar is that it doesn't have the same nutritional value as natural sugars, it provides energy in calories rather than carbohydrates. Added sugar gives you a rush that’s fun for a while, but you soon come crashing down. When this happens your body compensates by taking nutrients from other parts of your diet, this can have a negative impact on your health and immunity. Say no to added sugar and get your fix from one of these natural tasty sources!
