Carbs And Sugars Are The Same

What do you THINK are carbs? Do you think SUGAR is different than carbs?

Here’s the deal: when the word “sugar” is used, biochemically it refers to a group of carbohydrate molecular compounds made from just three elements: carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.

Carbs (carbohydrates) also called saccharides are easily identified: they end in “-ose” – glucose, fructose, lactose, sucrose, galactose, dextrose, etc. All of these sugars are sweet (some sweeter than others) and they all dissolve in water.

When you hear someone refer to “blood sugar” or “sugar in the blood,” they’re referring to glucose circulating in your blood.

So, the reality is that sugar is found in jars, broccoli, fruit, donuts, soda, and many other foods and beverages.
