They have a good variety of foods and it’s very accurate. It’s also mind blowing how much sugar there is in average foods. One of the coolest parts of this is that if you scroll down you see how you blew the sugar, you can see how much sugar is in each piece of food.
I had some members at Sugar Kills and Kiva try this and there was a big variety of amounts. Some had 10 grams, another had 46 grams, one even had as high as 151 grams of sugar! I personally got 25 grams of sugar, but something tells me that we all won’t follow that exactly.
You may be asking, “What is this fiber and how does it make a smoothie better?” Basically, fiber is a carbohydrate your body cannot break down, so because of that it leaves your body feeling much fuller. When you make juice, although you get a lot of nutrients, you don’t get the filling fiber, making you want more food.
So basically, both are fairly healthy choices, but if you want to be filled, smoothies are you best choice.
You thought all fruit and vegetable juice would be healthy for you, well you thought wrong!
Those bottles, those 15.2 ounce bottles labeled, “Naked Juice” claim to have no added sugar, which is true, but it doesn’t mean it has low amounts of sugar. One bottle has 46.9 grams of sugar! That’s almost double the amount of sugar you should have daily. Granted that is mostly natural sugar, which is healthier, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t healthy for you.
You may ask why those juices are so unhealthy for you when they don’t even really fill you up. The reason is because when you juice a fruit, you lose the fiber content of the fruit but you still get all of the sugar. That’s why you can eat 2 apples and feel near full, but when you drink the juice of 2 apples you still want more.
Looking for an exotic fruit to impress your friends? Here’s a list of a few with the sugar stats! Remember… all of these fruits contain natural sugar which doesn’t count for your daily 24 grams.
5. The Rambutan is a sweet Malaysian fruit that contains 0 grams of sugar! This a great tasting exotic fruit option.
4. The Dragon Fruit is an East Asian delicacy that contains only 8 grams of natural sugar! This is a good option to eat, and it will impress your friends with its bright outer pink shell.
3. Number 3 has 7 grams of sugar in an average serving size. It’s the Philippine Carambola, or “Star Fruit.” You may have heard of this sweet, tangy fruit in the classic video game, Fruit Ninja.
2. The Ackee is an African fruit that was smuggled over seas to the Caribbean and it has flourished its way into the Jamaican food culture. It can hold up to 2 grams of sugar in the buds, which is the only part you should eat since the other parts are highly poisonous.
1. The odd Squared Watermelon. You might think that its is a fake, but it actually is grown in Japan’s local markets. This awkward melon packs the same amount of sugar as a normal melon’s serving – 9.4 grams of natural sugar in one slice.
This concludes our post on exotic fruits. We hope you make a good decision, and if you chose the Ackee, make sure to only eat the buds!
This video is about an edible tablet that has zero grams of sugar is supposed to make sour things sweet. That is amazing!
We all enjoy sweet things, but sometimes sugary food is not healthy for us. This video shows us a pill that will change your taste buds so that sour things taste sweet. Now instead of eating sugary foods, we can trick our taste buds into thinking sour foods are sweet.
One of the only problems is the price, and the amount of times you would have to eat it to keep things sweet. Also, someone might get addicted to the tablet. Those are the only problems that we came up with that could affect your body or mind. I think the fact that a tablet can make a non-sugary food taste sweet without adding sugar is incredible!
After school, you open the refrigerator door looking for a healthy option…
You find a banana and a Granny Smith apple. Both look good, but you want to choose the most beneficial option. You go on the Sugar Kills blog, and find out that the apple has 10.5 grams, while the banana only has 6.7 grams!
