The effects of sugar
Over the past few decades, more and more research has been done regarding the short-term and long-term effects of sugar consumption. As with many things, consuming in moderation is fine. However, sugar has become an ingredient that is used in many things, as our taste has grown used to sweetness. In comparison to 100 years ago, we have raised our daily sugar consumption by 700%. As an alternative, sweeteners can be used as a replacement for sugar.
What are sweeteners?
Sweeteners are food additives used to stimulate a sense of sweetness during consumption. The use of sugar has become decreasingly popular in the last few decades and researchers have found and developed new ways to sweeten our food without the actual use of sugar. Sweeteners are used as a replacement of sugar.
