Understanding both healthy & not so healthy sugars with their Glycemic Index

Sugars

Glucose

Glucose is the simple sugar made by the body through digestion of carbohydrates. It is the body’s chief source of energy. Sometimes glucose is called dextrose.

Sucrose

Sucrose is what we commonly refer to as table sugar. It is made from highly processed sugar cane or sugar beets. The composition of sucrose is a combination of glucose and fructose, which separates during digestion. Pure sucrose is devoid of any nutrients.

Fructose

Fructose, commonly called fruit sugar, is a simple sugar found in honey, tree fruits, berries, and melons. But don’t be fooled into thinking fructose on a label means you are eating fruit sugar. Pure crystalline fructose comes from two sources: corn or sucrose (table sugar). Corn starch is processed to release fructose. Sucrose (table sugar) is enzymatically hydrolyzed to separate into glucose and fructose. Crystalline fructose is pure fructose from one of these two sources.

High fructose syrup

High Fructose Corn Syrup is made from starches like corn, wheat, and rice. High fructose syrups contain nearly equal amounts of glucose and fructose, a composition nearly identical to sucrose (table sugar). The reason high fructose corn syrup is so abundant in our processed food is simple-it’s cheaper than sugar. Because we highly subsidize corn and place tariffs on sugar imports, high fructose corn syrup is much less expensive.

Pure fructose is 1.2-1.8 times sweeter than sucrose so less is needed for the same level of sweetness. It is low on the glycemic index, therefore it does not lead to peaks and dips in the body’s glucose levels. But fructose is processed in the liver. When too much fructose enters the liver at once, the liver can’t process fructose as a sugar. Instead, the liver turns excess fructose into fats-triglycerides. When you incorporate these fats into our bodies cells (the cell membranes) triglycerides cause these cells to be insulin resistant. This is the reason that high fructose corn syrup leads to diabetes. Fructose is linked to significant increases of both cholesterol and triglycerides. And remember-fructose, like sucrose-is a highly refined processed sugar devoid of any nutrition.

Maltose

Maltose, also known as malt sugar, is half as sweet as sucrose (table sugar). It is produced from starch (barley, wheat, rice or other grains). It has been produced in China since 200 B.C. We use it in making beer and as an additive to some processed foods.

In our bodies, maltose is formed as the first step in digestion of starchy foods. It is then broken down into glucose.

Lactose

Lactose is the sugar found naturally in milk.

Date Sugar

Date sugar is 100% dehydrated dates ground into small pieces. It is a whole food, high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Date sugar can be substituted for granulated sugar or brown sugar cup for cup, but it does not dissolve in liquids. Most alternative health practitionars consider Date Sugar to be a healthy sugar alternative. We did not include it in the chart because we could not find its glycemic index.

Sugar Alcohols or Polyols

Maltitol, maltitol syrup, sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, lactitol, erythritol, andisomalt are examples of sugar alcohols. They occur naturally in plants, but are usually manufactured from sugars and starches. Sugar alcohols have fewer calories than sugars because they are not completely absorbed by the body. They can ferment in the intestines and cause gas, bloating, and diarrhea.

Glycemic Index

When carbohydrates are digested, glucose is released into the bloodstream. The glycemic index is a comparative measurement of the amount of glucose released by a particular food over a two to three-hour period.

Foods that rapidly release glucose rate high on the glycemic index (GI). Foods that slowly release glucose are low on the glycemic index. Mixing high and low GI foods can result in a moderate glucose release.

But the GI rating alone does not give you all of the information you need to determine a food’s effect on your blood sugar. It only tells you how quickly the carbs in a food should turn into sugar in your blood. The glycemic load or GL tells you how much of that carb the food contains. And of course the amount you eat of that particular food is also a huge factor in the rise of your blood sugar.

Foods ranked low on the GI scale release glucose slowly and steadily without a sudden spike of glucose in the blood.  A spike in glucose results in a large insulin release, which is more likely to store glucose as fat rather than use it as fuel. Plus a high release of insulin often results in a rapid drop in blood sugar, causing hunger. So you eat candy. Your blood sugar spikes. Insulin is released. Your blood sugar drops. You eat more candy. The sugar rollercoaster ride begins.

It is important to remember that the GI scale is simply a comparative scale; it compares one food’s blood glucose response to another. There are many other factors to consider when choosing your food. Start with the basic question. Is this food dense with nutrients?

Sugars & Substitutes with their Glycemic Index
Artificial Sweeteners N/A Never a Healthy Sugar Alternative
All artificial chemical sweeteners are toxic and can indirectly lead to weight gain, the very reason many people consume them. They should be avoided. In fact, given a choice between high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners, we recommend high fructose corn syrup by far (though it’s essentially asking if you should consume poison or worse poison).
Stevia 0 Best Healthy Sugar Alternative
Though it is 200-300 times sweeter than table sugar, stevia is not a sugar. Unlike other popular sweeteners, it has a glycemic index rating of less than 1 and therefore does not feed candida (yeast) or cause any of the numerous other problems associated with sugar consumption. Read more about stevia at Organic Lifestyle Magazine (OLM). Please note that Stevia and Truvia are not the same thing.
Xylitol 7 Xylitol is a natural sugar alcohol sweetener found in the fibers of fruits and vegetables which can cause bloating, diarrhea, and flatulence with initial consumption. It’s said to be safe for pregnant women, and is said to possibly treat ear infections, osteoposis, respiratory infections, candida, and is it even helps fight cavities. In fact, in Finland, virtually all chewing gum is sweetened with xylitol.
Agave Nectar 15-30 A sweet syrup made from the Blue Agave plant, Agave Nectar is obtained by the extraction and purification of “sap” from the agave plant, which is broken down by natural enzymes into the monosaccharides (simple sugars): mainly fructose (70-75%) and dextrose (20-26%). Read more about agave nectar at OLM.
Fructose 17 Though fructose has a low glycemic index rating, fructose consumption should be limited. Fructose is linked to heart disease as it raises triglycerides and cholesterol. It is devoid of nutrition.
Brown Rice Syrup 85 It is not recommended for diabetics, since its sweetness comes from maltose, which is known to cause spikes in blood sugar.
Raw Honey 30 A Healthy Sugar Alternative in moderation
With antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, amino acids, enzymes, carbohydrates, and phytonutrients, raw, unprocessed honey is considered a superfood by many alternative health care practitioners and a remedy for many health ailments. Choose your honey wisely. There is nothing beneficial about processed honey. Read more about honey at OLM.
Coconut Palm Sugar 35 Originally made from the sugary sap of the Palmyra palm , the date palm or sugar date palm (Phoenix sylvestris). It’s also made from the sap of coconut palms. With a relatively low glycemic index, Cocnut palm sugar is the new rage among health nuts. It’s often called “coconut nectar sugar” or “coconut sugar”.
Apple Juice 40 Fresh apple juice is good for you, though we recommend eating fresh raw whole apples. Concentrated apple juice (sometimes used as a sweetener) is closer to refined sugar than fresh apple juice.
Barley Malt Syrup 42 Barley malt syrup is considered to be one of the healthiest sweeteners in the natural food industry. Barley malt is made by soaking and sprouting barley to make malt, then combining it with more barley and cooking this mixture until the starch is converted to sugar. The mash is then strained and cooked down to syrup or dried into powder.
 Amasake 43 This is an ancient, Oriental whole grain sweetener made from cultured brown rice. It has a thick, pudding-like consistency. It’s not easy to find in the U.S., but it is a great alternative to refined table sugar.
Sugar Cane Juice 43 Healthy Sugar Alternative in moderation
Sugar cane juice has many nutrients and other beneficial properties and is said by some health practitioners to be almost as medicinal as raw honey.
Organic Sugar 47 Organic sugar comes from sugar cane grown without the use of chemicals or pesticides. It is usually darker than traditional white sugar because it contains some molasses. (It has not been processed to the degree white sugar is processed).
Maple Syrup 54 Maple syrup is made by boiling sap collected from natural growth maple trees during March & April. It is refined sap and is therefore processed.  It has a high glycemic index, and though it is much more nutritious then refined table sugar and high fructose corn syrup, there are better choices.
Evaporated Cane Juice 55 Evaporated cane juice is often considered unrefined sugar, but juicing is a refining process, and evaporating refines further. Though better than turbinado, cane juice (unevaporated) is a better choice as a sweetener.
Black Strap Molasses 55 White refined table sugar is sugar cane with all the nutrition taken out. Black strap molasses is all of that nutrition that was taken away. A quality organic (must be organic!) molasses provides iron, calcium, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc, and is alkalizing to the body.
Turbinado 65 Turbinado sugar is partially processed sugar, also called raw sugar.
Raw Sugar
Raw sugar 65 Raw sugar is not actually raw sugar. It is processed, though not as refined as common white table sugar. Therefore, given a choice between raw and white, choose raw. There are many different variations of raw sugar with many different names depending on how refined it is.
Cola (and most other sodas) 70 Though cola has a lower GI ranking then some might expect, there are many other reasons to avoid cola, or any type of soda. There is nothing beneficial to the human body inside a can of soda (not to mention we should avoid drinking out of aluminum cans!).
Corn Syrup 75 Corn syrup has very little nutrition and should be avoided.
Refined, Pasteurized Honey 75 The nutrition is gone, and there is often high fructose corn syrup added to processed honey. Refined pasteurized honey is no better than white table sugar.
Refined Table Sugar 80 Conventionally grown, chemically processed, and striped of all beneficial properties, many health advocates believe that refined sugar is one of the two leading causes (high fructose corn syrup is the other) of nearly every health ailment known to man (or woman or child). Not only does it have a high GI ranking, but it also is extremely acidic to the body causing calcium and other mineral depletion from bones and organs (sugar is alkaline but has a very acidic effect on the body).
High Fructose Corn Syrup 87 Many health advocates believe that high fructose corn syrup and refined sugar are the two biggest contributors to health ailments in our society. High fructose corn syrup is a combination of sucrose and fructose.
Glucose (AKA Dextrose) 100 White bread was the benchmark, but for consistency glucose now holds the rating at 100.
Maltodextrin 150 Foods that have maltodextrin often say “Low Sugar” or “Complex Carbohydrate”, but this sweetener should be avoided!

Please note that the glycemic index numbers here are estimates. There are many variables that help determine how quickly a sugar is absorbed. These numbers represant an average of many different respected studies. In addition, it is very important to note that the glycemic index does not define what is a healthy sugar and what is an unhealthy sugar. There are many other variables.

My juice fasting experience

The Journey into juice fasting

After studying nutrition for managing disease and reading heaps on books on various ancient healing methods I concluded that fasting seems to speed up the process. No matter if you are trying to cure cancer, diabetes, a chronic condition or just lose weight and get you health on the right track it seems that starting this process with a 3-7-10 days of fasting is a sure recipe to speed up recovery.
There are so many books and articles written on the topic of doing a juice fasting so I thought that is doable and relative easy to stick with it. After all it’s only a 7 days from your life when you are going to avoid eating your normal diet.

As easy as it seems on paper I hit a wall when tried it in the real world. It looks that the all around temptations combined with human primary sense of “instant pleasure” make a dynamic duo. Every single time when I tried it I couldn’t go over the first day. I must confess that I wasn’t trying to overcome major disease just wanted to lose a few extra kilos I shed over the years and to get my health on the best. It was more a preventative method to assure my children will have a mother to nourish them for many years. I am a strong believer in prevention rather than cure as I think the changes you need to make when you are already in the middle of an illness are too dramatic and carry a lot of stress.

After successfully failing many times I found myself in the position of “the seeker”, the “eternal starter” of a better health. After a lot of introspection and self judgmental talk I finally settled with acceptance. I accepted that it is not an easy task to put your health on track by doing a 7-10 days juice fast and I committed to trying various methods to overcome the mental obstacles in achieving my goal. Moreover, I committed to document my trial and error in the hope that other people might benefit from it and make a “turning point” for their health.

The first attempt was to try and focus on what I can have (fruit and vegetable juice, water, clear vegetable soups, fruit smoothies, salad smoothies) and ignore the rest. It worked well until I had to cook and prepare my family’s lunches. The smell of a casserole and the look of the cheese made me break my pact of having a fast. I thought: “tomorrow is another day” I’ll start then. But everyone knows how tomorrow never comes so I kept delaying and delaying.

The very green juices and smoothies I’ve created

The next trial was to have everything ready for delicious juices and start the day with 2 glasses of green juice and have another liter or so ready for when the hunger hits.
What I found very intriguing is not the hunger because the juice manages very well the feeling of hunger but the constant thoughts of solid food that haunt your mind. I started having like a million thoughts an hour about that cheese in the fridge or about the yummy rye rolls in the cupboard. So, what have I done? I stopped all again and reverted to a solid food diet.

The subsequent challenge was to drink first thing in the morning 1.5 liters pure water and then continue as much as I could with juices, many green juices and at some stage during the day having my normal solid food. This attempt was based on the believe that water flushes out toxins from the body and the green drinks provide enzymes, vitamins and protein to the body and hoping that I could stop at some stage eating any solid food for a few days. That seems to work pretty well at least in terms of getting a normal elimination but it still didn’t stop my constant thinking of solid food and eventually at some stage in the afternoon I had “something to eat”.
That particular attempt drove me to thinking that some serious internal introspection is needed. After “being” with myself combined with meditation I have realized that my chakras are quite out of balance. That is not of surprise considering all the environmental, social and media impact. All the negative energy levels surrounding us interfere with the sensible chakra balance.
So, I have started a program of chakra healing (I’m a Reiki healer myself) and attempted to do less which means I tried to do a one day a week juice fast for as long as I need it to feel comfortable with the longer detox.
It worked wonders as one day at a time seems to be more manageable and you still can get some benefit out of it. If no other benefit at least you get to practice your discipline.

After four weeks of full body Reiki and practicing the weekly fast I came across a hypnotherapy tape on overcoming addictions. In an instant I have realized that I am addicted to cooked food so I listened to the tape as well.

The result was I stayed on a 3 days liquid fast with no cravings. How I felt is another story. Because I used smoothies mostly made of fruits I had really bad detox reactions so I mainly managed to do the basic things around the house and to lie down in bed. I also had flu like symptoms which lasted for about 10 days.

The change after the fasting was big; I switched to a gluten free diet (suspecting gluten intolerance), stopped coffee, sugar and alcohol and I lost 5 kg. The kilograms came off in the following 3-4 weeks after the fasting and it was a real surprise as I couldn’t lose a gram no matter what diet or training program I followed.

The 7 days liquid detox is still waiting for me to start it but now, I am much more confident I will be able to do it.

How about you?

Paleo home made bacon and chicken breast

For my homemade “processed” meats I used more or less this recipe posted by eazypaleo.

Image

Posted on July 24, 2013eazypaleo

It’s hard to look for a healthy version of Bacon in the market that is Nitrate free and MSG free. It is safer to make your own and wait for 7 days curing.

Here’s what you need:
-1kilo/2lb Pork belly, skin on
-2 tbsp sea salt
-1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
-1 tsp dried rosemary
-1 tsp dried thyme
-1 tsp fennel seed
-2 bay leaves
-1 glove garlic, minced
-1 tbsp raw honey

Procedure:
1. Rinse pork belly and pat dry.
2. Combine all the seasonings in a bowl, except for the honey.
3. Rub all the seasoning over the pork. Place the pork in a Big ziplock with the leftover spices and honey. Shake well.
4. Refrigerate for 7days, flipping the bag every day or so.

5. After 7 days, remove the bacon from the bag and rinse it thoroughly, pat dry.
6. Preheat oven to 200F.
7. Place bacon in baking pan and roast until the meat reaches 150F or about 2 hours.
8. Transfer bacon to you cutting board and slice. Let it cool then wrap and refrigerate again.
9. When you’re ready for a delicious treat, slice the meat to whatever thickness you like, and cook it the same way as you would any other bacon.

The differences for me were that I have used:

3 kg pork belly (2 pieces)

1.5 kg chicken breast

I have marinated them for about 6-8 days then half of them I have smoked in the BBQ (charcoal BBQ) with special cherry wood chips (you can buy them in shops – Bunnings in Australia). I have smoked them for about 1 – 1.5 hr then placed them in the oven (with the ones which I haven’t smoked) and cooked them for about 2-3 hrs on low temperature. You’ll have to check them to see how are they going and also you need to cover them with foil or a lid.

Enjoy!

Spirulina and Chlorella

20131105_094604

 

SOURCE: http://naturalbodylab.com.au/blog-articles/

The mighty power of green- Spirulina and Chlorella

The nutritional content of Spirulina or Chlorella make them the most powerful foods in the world. No other foods could possibly compete with them. Of the nearly 70,000 species of algae that exist, most are very nutritious. A few are toxic and a few are powerful nutraceuticals capable of supplying the body with nutrients unimagined by most other foods. A nutraceutical is any food that provides the body with the proper nutrition so the body can heal itself.

Spirulina and Chlorella are perfect whole foods, true superfoods . They have a perfect balance of protein (60%) carbohydrates (19%), fats (6%) bio-available minerals (8%). They are not extracts or concentrates which, on paper, have high nutrient levels. In reality, if you have digestive complaints, you may not be able to absorb these vitamin supplements because they are dead, void of enzymes.
On the other hand, eating Spirulina or Chlorella is like eating any other whole food such as a banana, apple or broccoli…. Only in a SUPER-power-packed way!!

Algae are the oldest foods in the world. Fossil records show that Spirulina and Chlorella have existed for billions of years essentially unchanged for all that time. They have both developed strategies of survival against harshly unfavorable conditions such as drought, radiation and even strong man-made poisons that have driven many other plant organisms to extinction.

There are several different species of these two algae, however the ones that I refer to here are Spirulina Platensis and Chlorella Pyrenoidosa. Another Chlorella product found on the market is known as Chlorella Vulgaris, which is nutritionally inferior to its powerful cousin Pyrenoidosa. The alga found in swimming pools is a close cousin to chlorella vulgaris . It does not have the broad array of nutrients of Pyrenoidosa, its incredible fiber nor does anywhere near the same amount or quality of Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF). Don’t be fooled by price, Chlorella Pyrenoidosa is worth the extra money and why it is considered the most powerful food in the world.

A tremendous amount of scientific research has been done on both Spirulina and Chlorella from universities and medical institutions from around the world. They have proven to be one of the best solutions world hunger problems. They are also used as feed for all kinds of live stock. Once tableted, they will last up to a year with refrigeration and even longer if vacuum-packed.

Which one should you take?

Even though the nutritional profile of Spirulina and Chlorella are quite similar they are completely different foods, as different as apples and oranges. Although many of the nutrients in these foods are the same, they will assimilate and benefit the body in different ways. This is also why we should attempt to get as many different types of foods into our diet as possible. The greater array of nutrients in any food, the more nutritious it is.

Spirulina is a nitrogen based blue green algae and has the predominant smell of seaweed. Chlorella is an oxygen based green algae that has the predominant smell of fresh grass. Chlorella gets its name from the high amount of chlorophyll in it, up to 10 times that of Spirulina which is itself quite high in chlorophyll. Chlorella belongs to a class of algae called chlorophyta.

Spirulina is an extremely high energy food, great before or after a workout and is used widely for joint soreness and joint support.
Chlorella is excellent for digestion, heavy-metal detoxification, and is a immune system builder.
Therefore, the answer to the question as to which of these two algae should you take is that you should definitely have both of them in your diet.

Protein, the Great Regulator

Spirulina and Chlorella are complete proteins meaning they provide the body with the eight essential amino acids, yet they go much further. They are 60% protein in the form of amino acids that are in the right ratio to one another. There is a lot of confusion and misinformation about protein, how much protein is actually in certain foods and what the protein actually consists of. For instance, most people assume meat is comprised of 100% protein when it is only 22% protein on average. Meat only has eleven amino acids and is heavily weighted in only four of them, which means that the body is receiving a very lopsided version of protein. What the body needs is a broad array of amino acids that are in the correct proportion to one another such as Spirulina, Chlorella and even wheat grass. Wheat grass juice is only 24% protein (higher than meat) compared to over 60% for Spirulina and Chlorella, which is the highest amount of protein of any whole foods.

Dosages
How much to take. When to take it.

Chlorella: A maintenance dosage of Chlorella is about 3 – 5 grams per day. Although you will not see significant changes taking such a small amount of whole food, your body will be getting a broad array of nutrients unlike it has seen before. Since Chlorella is a detoxifying whole food, not a concentrate or extract, a person can eat as much as they desire without any fear of it becoming potentially toxic in any way.

Chlorella is best taken before a meal with probiotics, our friendly bacteria ( Acidophilus and Bifidus ). Chlorella causes probiotics to multiply at four times the rate of normal.

Maintenance Dosage: 3 – 5 grams/day
Significant part of the Diet: 6 – 10 grams/day
Immune System Builder: 11 – 14 grams/day
Primary Source of Protein : 12 – 19 grams/day
Healing Purposes & Heavy Metal Detoxification#: 20 – 30+ grams/day

#Please note; this should be done under Practitioner supervision only
*Best before a meal to aid with digestion.

Spirulina

Maintenance dosage: 3 — 5 gm/day

Although their nutritional profile may appear to be quite similar, Spirulina and Chlorella are completely different foods. Spirulina is great before a physical workout. Stamina, endurance and recovery are significantly improved with Spirulina. After a strenuous workout where the body is pushed to its limits, an additional 10 – 20 grams should be taken during the following 24 hours to rebuild the body and muscle tissue that has been torn down.

Spirulina should also be taken 15 – 30 minutes before a meal to help prepare the stomach for proper digestion since it also helps accelerate the reproductive rate of probiotics.

Maintenance Dosage: 3 – 5 grams/day
Significant Part of the Diet: 6 – 10 grams/day
Immune System Builder: 11 – 14 grams/day
Primary Source of Protein : 12 – 19 grams/day
Healing Purposes#: 20 – 25+ grams/day

Summer detox

20131105_094604

This summer detox is extracted from Organic Empire website.

Your body is an amazing self regulating and rejuvenating system, that requires the right nutrients to function. If the diet is lacking in correct nutrition or is overloaded with the modern nutrient deficient diet it can make this phenomenal organism we call the human body, operationally impaired.  Its at this point that cells are not replaced so precisely – this is what we call ageing.

 Let’s take a quick snapshot of in fact how amazing you truly are……

  • Your skin renews itself every 21 days
  • Your bones repair themselves in 6 weeks
  • Your digestive tract replaces itself every 4 days
  • After 7 years every cell in your body has been replaced….. new year…new you…
Impressed??? You should be, I think you are pretty amazing too!  So it only seems fair that you do your part to support your body, that’s where a detox comes in.
Basically detoxing is the elimination toxins from your body, yes your body can do this quite efficiently without a formal detox, but when your system is comprimised or overloaded (ie the kind that happens around Christmas ;), impurities are not filtered properly and are then stored.
