I always thought the Ministry of Health should do something to promote proper nutritional education and practices.

I think they could start by imposing stricter false advertising penalties with extremely heavy fines.

- No more "Made with 100% Juice" when they know they use 2 drops of juice, artificial flavouring, ascorbic acid and 20g of sugar
- No more "Fat Free" when they know they pack it with a bunch of sugar
- No more "Sugar free" or sugar substitutes marketed to diabetics when they know they just packing it with maltodextrin which just as bad (if not worse) than sugar. I'm looking at those boxes of Stevia in price mart. I think about 50% of it is maltodextrin which means they are just making people pay more for no added benefit.

A good idea would also be warning labels like what you see on cigarettes. So on the stevia box you will have something like "This product contains ingredients known to cause or worsen the effects of diabetes and pancreas disfunction". Idk how to word it, I'm not a doctor.

Americans gone full crazy

There's this Health At Every Size (HAES) movement making inroads into social media, where overweight people claim they are healthy.

Full on crazy...

I think stevia is the name of the plant the the sweetener is derived from. As far as I know that sweetener is supposed to not be bad for you at all. However, if you look at the nutrition facts of the Stevia sweetener in price mart (and many other places) you would see that it is about 50% maltodextrin.

Maltodextrin is at least as bad as regular sugar but it's cheap and easy to make so it is used as a filler in many stevia sweeteners. The problem is that these products market the "Stevia" over everything else so much that I can't even recall the actual brand name.... or if Stevia is also the brand name.

The thing is, food companies know people want to be healthy and purposefully make crappy products seem like health products so that they can increase their profit margins at our expense.


Another trick some companies use is the "0g Trans Fat" trick. The catch is that this is per serving and they are allowed to round off their numbers. so if they make a bag of potato chips with 1.2g of trans fat, they just have say that 1 bag of chips is 2.5 servings. That means each serving is 0.48g, rounded to the closest whole number gives 0g. Now multiplying 0x2.5 gives you 0g trans fat per serving per bag of chips!... and they didn't even have to change their formula.

Think about it. Why is a 20 Oz. coke 2.5 servings? How often do you drink less than half a bottle of coke and save the rest for another day?

Maltodextrin is glucose.

It's a glucose polymer. Isn't regular sugar 50% glucose and 50% sucrose?

Regular brown sugar/white sugar is sucrose which is a polymer of 1 unit of glucose and 1 unit of fructose.
Glucose isn't that bad for you if you eat it in small amounts.

Diets that just contain glucose, like rice diets (Japanese/Chinese) of mostly starch (a polymer of just glucose units) is safe for those populations that are carbohydrate tolerant. It's fructose that's such a big problem. Only the liver can carry out fructolysis.

maltodextrin is not as bad a sugar in terms of glycemic load, it takes longer
hence it is used in many sports drinks, gels etc
