Unhealthy cereals and healthy grain free cereals!

30 September 2016, Friday

There are good health reasons why Raw Gorilla grain free breakfast cereals and snacks do not contain added refined sugar.

The Daily Mail online has just published a shocking exposure of the amount of cane sugar in popular cereals, that sit on most peoples breakfast tables.

The headline reads

‘Not such a healthy start to the day! The breakfast cereals that contain almost TWICE as much sugar as a chocolate-filled pastry…’

Pain au chocolat contains slightly more than 9g of sugar on average
But popular branded breakfast cereals often exceed that amount
Coco Pops, Frosties and Crunchy Nut top the list for highest sugar content
‘Healthy’ cereals Fruit ‘N’ Fibre and Jordans Country Crisp make the list

There is a reason that we have gone to the trouble to NOT add any cane sugar to any of our products. Instead we use fruits such as lucuma, and dried fruits such as dates.

The facts about refined sugar being damaging to health are well known. What is not so well known is how much is put into so many foods.

The dreadful fact about refined sugar is that it is addictive, and has no nutritional value just a lot of calories for energy, which turn to fat if not used.
Many medics have said they believe that peoples addiction to sugar is the root cause of diabetes and obesity, two of the biggest killers.

In addition sugar affects the PH of the body. We should be alkaline in PH. There is a lot of evidence that shows that a PH which is acidic leads to disease , even cancer.
To correct any type of imbalance, the body draws on mineral stores. For example, to protect the blood, calcium is drawn from the bones and teeth — enough to weaken bones. This precipitates osteoarthritis.
Refined sugar may even be damaging to the digestive system, particularly for those who have difficulty digesting carbohydrates.

Hidden sources of sugar

The trouble is in the supermarket today that so many products contain hidden sources of sugar. People think they are being healthy eating a cereal which even positions itself as healthy.
The mass produced, overly refined and processed foods are cheap because they actually contain little nutrition and are loaded with refined processed sugar, additives, colourants, all of which our taste buds become accustomed to.

Sugar has similar toxic effects to the liver as alcohol does.
