Sometimes you can't avoid something with sucrose in it, or fructose.
I've observed that after years of doing without sucrose is overwhelmingly sweet, even sickeningly sweet. Fructose, however, is simply sweet ~ and that means there are fewer carbs of sugar i will need to worry about and, besides, it's a better tasting product by simply being less sweet than sucrose.
well thats just it - the corn sweeter is so ubiquitous that
those of us who need to avoid it cannot do so easily without giving up a lot of foods we used to eat as a matter of course.
I discovered I was diabetic quite by accident and have been
eating few or no sugars (other than raw fruit) or starches
(other than brown rice) since ‘06.
Fortunately I am type II and can control glucose levels by
‘diet and excersize’. So I spend a lot of time in the gym and have forgone my midday Payday bar ;-)
