If sugar is monkeyed with, is it still real sugar? Since 2015, the World Health Organization has been encouraging adults to reduce their daily sugar intake - or no more than a total of six teaspoons of a 2,000-calorie diet. Currently, one 12 oz. can of Coke contains almost ten teaspoons of sugar. So, the race to get the best sugar out there has been going on for years.
Sugar. Is it sucrose, saccharin, or fructose? Perhaps it is lactose, Splenda, amylose, or glucose, but what the heck is allulose? Holy sugar packets, Batman. The battle is to not only get the taste of sugar right, but bakers and scientists have been battling the consistency that makes cakes, bread, candy still appealing. It would be amazing if we could continue our everyday pleasures, and yes, reduce the sugar intake, but maybe we should just…reduce our sugar intake.
