But here, we are not thinking about a reasonable amount of sugar, since this is not dangerous for our health. A lot of people are not even aware that they consume great sugar amounts, by eating various products that can be found in stores including cereals, sodas, salad dressings, drinks, candies, yogurts etc.
These products usually accumulate excessive amounts of sugar in the body. You can find simple carbohydrates in foods, like: raisins, honey, natural fruit juices, bananas and mangoes. Our organism is built to quickly use the sugars, usually as a quick source of energy. This process of the body raises the levels of blood sugar, and we are all aware that this has harmful effects on the health.
