New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Table Sugar vs High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)?
so today we’re going to talk about table sugar versus I for just corn syrup okay when you read labels you’ll see table sugar you’ll say sugar pure sugar you’ll even see sucrose if it says sucrose or table sugar or pure sugar nine times out of ten it’s going to be beet sugar not cane sugar beet sugar is cheaper than cane sugar and it’s GM oh okay 95 percent of all the beet sugar in the US is genetically modified so it’s Roundup Ready and they allow up to 15 milligrams of glyphosate which is that chemical per kilogram that’s just way too much now when we get to high fructose corn syrup it’s also GMO because it’s made at a corn the process that they make I for dos corn syrup is very confidential but one big difference between high fructose corn syrup and sucrose whether it’s made from beet or cane sugar is this the way that glucose and fructose is bound so with beet sugar and cane sugar it’s kind of a 50/50 split glucose and fructose but it’s bound together 50/50 ratio high fructose corn syrup has about a 58 to 42 similar but it’s a little bit more glucose but the unique thing about this it’s unbound so the significance of it being unbound is it creates a lot more liver damage when you consume high fructose corn syrup you create a similar effect as drinking alcohol so you’re gonna be problems with inflammation in the liver eventually scar tissue so you will eventually get a fatty liver if you if you consume too much but here’s the problem kids have the highest consumption of high fructose corn syrup it’s actually 72 grams per day that’s crazy and when you consume a refined sugar it pull out the nutrients that pull its vitamins even like with cane sugar for example they pull out the vitamins and the minerals and they put that as molasses so they give you this completely empty carbohydrate what’s going to happen it’s going to deplete you of those nutrients because it takes two nutrients especially b1 and other B vitamins to metabolize and break down and use that trigger so when you consume the sugar you are depleting a lot of B vitamins and one of the conditions that you can develop from consuming too much refined sugar is a buildup of lactic acid and that’s called lactic acidosis so you might find that it’s hard to breathe you might get restless leg syndrome and there’s a lot of other issues as well but here’s the thing no nutrients in the refined carbohydrate deplete to the nutrients and it gives you a lot of oxidative stress and your arteries in the nervous system and the brain and the eyes and this is the problem with the diabetic they have high levels of sugar in the blood and it’s oxidizing the tissues mainly for the eyes the kidney the heart and the nervous system and brain and then you get the complications of diabetes if you were to at least consume sugar with the nutrients let’s say for example you ate sugar cane with all the vitamins and things in there or you had fruit for example or even if you took nutrients while you’re eating the sugar you would actually experience less side effects or less complications you would get diabetes but it wouldn’t you wouldn’t have the degree of complications and side effects not that I’m recommending that but if you are a diabetic and you’re on keto and doing in a minute fasting and you’re healing it’s very important to add more of the nutrients in the body to lower the complications so even though your blood sugars might still be high in this transition phase the nutrients that you’re taking are protection against this oxidative stress so in summary there is absolutely zero benefits of consuming any of these sweeteners and even exposing your kids to these sweeteners there it’s so easy to use the alternatives xylitol for example tastes almost identical to sugar arethe rotol is a great alternative sweetener stevia some people don’t like that but it’s it’s good and certain things but not others monk fruit the same thing so if you’re new to this I put a link down below for more data on alternative sugars so you can completely avoid beet sugars you Piper just corn syrup thanks for watching hey before you go would you mind putting a comment down below to tell me what you think about this video

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about table sugar versus high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). If it is sucrose, table sugar or pure sugar, it means it is beet sugar and not cane sugar which is cheaper and also a GMO. 95% of all the beet sugar in the US is GMO and allow up to 15mg/kg of glyphosate. HCFS is also GMO and is made up of corn.
High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)
• Creates liver damage
• Consuming HFCS creates a similar effect when you consume alcohol
• Kids have the highest consumption of HFCS – 72g/day
Consuming a refined sugar, it pulls out the vitamins and nutrients could deplete you of the nutrients especially B vitamins to metabolize and breakdown to use that sugar and it also gives you a lot of oxidative stress. One of the symptoms you can develop from consuming too much refined sugar is a buildup of lactic acid and is called lactic acidosis.
