“Freshly squeezed orange juice is healthy and natural,” says the food industry.
The fact is:
Orange juice contains the same amount of sugar as a cola.
Incredible – and still true!
One deciliter of orange juice and one deciliter of cola each contain 9 to 10 grams of sugar!
In terms of nature, both are table sugar (sucrose). This is naturally contained in oranges. In the case of sweet drinks, it is obtained from sugar beet and added to the drink.
Orange nectar contains even more sugar than pure – just as freshly squeezed – orange juice or orange juice from concentrate. According to the law, this may contain up to 20 grams of sugar per deciliter. That’s twice the sugar content in cola!
Now you can say: “But the vitamins!” And of course, there are vitamins and nutrients in oranges and orange juice. If so, you should always eat a fruit such as an apple whole, because then you also get fiber and the pulp.
With a glass of orange juice – just as freshly squeezed – you consume the sugar of 3–4 oranges, which is a lot of fructose. Fructose can be the cause of non-alcoholic fatty liver.
If vitamins are your thing, eat greens or an apple.
What is the difference between the natural fruit sugar found in the fruit and fructose?
- What is the difference between fruit sugar and fructose? I’ll give you the answer myself. Fruit sugar is the sugar that occurs naturally in the fruit. Fructose is high fructose corn syrup made from GMO corn.
- “Fruit sugar does not drive the insulin level through the roof like ready-made industrial sugar.” My answer: This knowledge is long out of date – this is matrix knowledge from the 1970s. Today diabetologists know that fruit sugar is responsible for reduced insulin sensitivity and the development of fatty liver. Fruit sugar is also responsible for the increase in uric acid in the blood. Why is that? Because fruit sugar consists of simple sugars and simple sugars are acid-forming because of their high number of positively charged ions.
- Table sugar is a disaccharide, a double sugar. Fruit sugar is a simple sugar. Which goes into the blood faster? The answer is clear.
- “Even if you eat fruit all day, you won’t get fat because of the natural fruit sugar.” That’s not an argument. A person does not gain weight if he eats the whole fruit – yes that is true. A person gains weight when their caloric balance is too high. Input – output. But a person gets sick and is totally unbalanced if he eats fruit all day. That’s not a good recommendation. Fruits are a dessert and should be consumed accordingly.
Sugar provides the organism with large amounts of empty calories, 4000 kcal / kg, and that in a ruthless manner, because its acidic effect immediately imbalances the metabolism.
A comparison of the glucose and fructose formulas makes the big difference in the structure of these two sugars sufficiently clear. The fact that sucrose-sugar does not get directly into the blood has nothing to do with this problem.
Rather, its transformation and its acidic reaction are very negative (strong Yin), because it has to be neutralized by calcium and magnesium reserves, which causes alkalosis of the blood.
From a physiological point of view: sugar is very yin (expanding) in its effect, requires base-forming, and produces increased “robbing” of base-forming minerals. It also has a strong expanding effect on organs such as the heart (the heart is a Yang organ).
From a psychological point of view: sugar causes, among other things, depression, anxiety, loss of trust in the natural order, and confinement in one’s “shell” – all of which are psychological yang results of physical yin generation.
Why is fruit sugar acidic?
Because fruit sugar consists of simple sugars and simple sugars are acid-forming because of their high number of positively charged ions.
Why do people rebel so violently when it comes to sugar cessation and withdrawal?
“Because sugar is at least as addictive as heroin – this has been known for decades.”
Prof. Dr. med. Meyrin-Berger, Germany
I do not believe that! Yes, the heroin addict says that too!
“Sugar is eight times more addicting than cocaine.”
Dr. med. Nicole Avana, USA
I do not believe that! Yes, the cocaine addict says that too!
