Sugar: Pure, white and deadly

Pure, white and deadly

What makes sugar pure, white and deadly? It all has to do with how sweeteners are broken down in the body.

Both sugar and high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) are made up of both fructose and glucose (sugar is a 50-50 mixture while HFCS is 55 percent fructose.)

And it is the fructose that is causing the problems.

For example, if you were to eat 100 calories of glucose in the form of a potato or 100 calories of sugar (which is half glucose and half fructose), they will be metabolized very differently once they enter the body.

Glucose is broken down by every cell in the body, whereas fructose is metabolized primarily by the liver.

More fructose means more work for the liver, and when the liver gets overworked, it starts converting sugars to fat.

So even though the same amount of calories were consumed, it is more likely that the calories from sugar would be converted to fat than those that came from the potato.
