Food Restrictions, Limitations and Allergies

Sugar and Sweeteners    Previous - Next

Issues related to weight control also affect the type and amount of sugars and carbohydrate consumed. These are, of course, differences for every person. Many diets restrict various forms of carbohydrates. Many other diets are based on or use the so-called “glycemic index” which deals with the way the body supposedly reacts to various individual carbohydrates. Other diets try to balance carbohydrates, proteins, fiber and fats.
