View Full Version : Isn't Fruit Full of Sugar?

I know this question has probably been asked a gazillion times, but the site won't let me search "fruit."
Just curious as to why fruit is allowed as I have often read that "sugar is sugar." Thanks!

Fruit and many vegetables have natural sugars which the body can digest better than the cane & beet sugars which are processed. I read somewhere that the people who live in the areas that grow the cane sugar do not eat it processed like we do and I must admit that gave me a pause for thought. The labels on the cans will show the ingredients listed and we need to watch that no processed sugars (or other starches or other foods that are bad for food addicts) are added. The labels also show the sugar content and a can of just tomatoes will show a high amount of sugar, but this is natural sugar. And like others have pointed out, the fruits and vegetables have lots of fiber and that is an important part of this food plan. Our bodies need this fiber and can digest the natural sugars to get the nutrients from them. The processed sugars - like cane and beet - rob our bodies of nutrients to help digest them.
