  1. Raw and Unrefined Sugar

Sugar has bad ingredient because, as it has nothing but only empty calories. This is due to the fact that during processing, all the natural nutrients are stripped off, and further chemicals are used to remove impurities. Raw and unrefined sugar, on the other hand, still retains natural nutrients such as iron, magnesium, etc. and is therefore a better choice. This natural granulated sugar is golden in colour, tastes almost like honey and is free of any kind of chemicals or pesticides.

However you won’t believe if someone says Sulphur in sugar? Yes, most sugar processing units around the world use sulphur to remove impurities from the sugar crystals. In India, sugar is refined using the Double Sulphitation method. The result is often not desirable, as some quantities of sulphur are retained in the sugar crystals. This sulphur coated sugar when consumed over a period of time, can lead to health hazards.  

Sugar increases the bad cholesterol level which results into heart attack. True

One study is frequently cited as proving the effects of sugar on cholesterol levels. Researchers found that sugar consumption raised several markers for cardiovascular disease.

They determined that people who consumed more added sugars had lower “good” cholesterol, or high-density lipoprotein (HDL). HDL actually works to take up extra “bad” cholesterol, or low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and transport it to the liver. So, we want our HDL levels to be high.

Sugar increases the body weight excessively which results into obesity. True

Sugar is a carbohydrate. Too many carbs can lead to weight gain mainly due to extra calories in the diet. Watch your sugar intake whether it comes from sweets, candy, potatoes, breads and rice. Sugars in any form especially forms without fiber can lead to blood sugar fluctuations and cause cravings for more carbohydrates.

Aside from the calories it contains, sugar is a highly addictive substance. Some argue it is as addictive as drugs like heroin. When we eat sugar, it causes a neurotransmitter response that makes us feel good, and we experience a mild "high". Once this feeling subsides, we end up craving it again. Studies are even showing that, like drugs such as heroin, we build up a tolerance to the sugar and end up needing more and more to produce that same high. Therefore, the calories add up and we end up gaining weight.

Since 2003, the World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended that intake of "free" sugars be limited to 10% of calories daily. The WHO is in the process of updating that recommendation, and it commissioned the review of this research to help that process.
