Can anyone tell me what kinds of food contain high concentrate of glucose?
outsider said:i guess so... thats for people who have insulin problems? diabetics?
Hmm.. :surprised: Are there any sugars we cannot digest!!??Ouabache said:Many foods contain other sugars such as; sucrose, maltose, fructose and lactose. When consumed, these sugars can raise your blood-glucose levels and if metabolized further are converted to energy, carbon-dioxide and water. Starches (pasta, bread, rice, potato) are complex carbohydrates and do not contain glucose as such, but larger molecules. When metabolized, starches will also increase your blood-glucose level.
Yes, but glucose is not bad at all and it only contains a little bit of glucose. Glucose is good because it activates your brain to know it is getting food in. What is wrong with all those things is the fructose in it. fructose becomes for most of the part fat and it doesn't give a signal to the body that there is comming in nutritions! So think twice before giving your kids a coke; coke is hitting the liver, even better coke = ethanol (beer) without the buzz!Candy / soft drinks / anything sweet... but you probably knew that.
The only thing why an atkin's diet works is because it's cutting out all fructose by it! So actually eating small amounts of glucose and complex carbs is good for you.pasta, rice, bread things of that nature. basically a lot of stuff that is cut out of an atkin's diet.
