sugar

I was wondering...fruits and stuff seem to have a lot of sugar. I was eating a box of raisins and it had like 30 grams of sugar, yet the food label just says "raisins" as the ingriedients! What is this....fruit is now bad too? and fruit juice and stuff? This is crazy!

Re: sugar

No no no!!!

The term is *REFINED SUGAR*, not anything
sweet. Fruit juice and fruit is sweetened
by Fructose, which is a naturally-occuring
sugar. If you're worried about something
being bad for you, ask yourself if it is
man-made / processed or not. If it's not,
eat it..

Re: sugar

Wow...thanks for clearing that up! I was like woah...this box of raisins has more sugar in it than a ******* candy bar! And cereal and stuff like Oatmeal Crisp Raisin...(this is real god) has lots of sugar...but its just sweetened flakes w/ oats and rasins...so it has good stuff in it so I think its ok to eat too! I have been doing pretty well with my diet...I had a cherry muffin the other day, but atleast it wasn't a cup cake! I eat rice, chicken, pasta, crackers, rice cakes, lots of fruit, carrots, fruit rolls, raisins, bagels, pita, cheese (*not too often) ...stuff like that and its really not that hard. Sometimes i am tempted to eat something....and i'll have it on my fork..and then will be like NO and stop myself...so atleast i have the will power! Its not only for acne...its to stay healthy also. I'm into a major health kick now! Anyways...take care all! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Oh..is SKIM MILK bad for you ?(could it cause acne) I have heard of like 2% and whole milk doing it but what about skim...I haven't had milk in i can't even tell you..i eat my cereal w/out it now because i don't want it to cause me to break out. Sorry so long!

Re: sugar

Fruit juice and dried fruit (like raisins) are considered to be ``refined sugars''. The type of sugar (glucose, sucrose, fructose) is irrelevant. The reason it's ok to eat fruit is that the sugar is much more slowly absorbed into the blood stream.

Re: sugar

An unrefined carbohydrate has not had the sugar or starch isolated from the rest of the product. Examples include: fruit, whole grains, unpeeled potatoes, etc.

If you're interested, there's a great book on this subject (which includes recipes consisting only of whole, unrefined foods):

``The Healing Power of Whole Foods,'' by Beth Loiselle.

Re: sugar

CottonCandy you really shouldn't sacrifice you milke cereal like that, i'm sure a little skim milk with your cereal would have little effect.
