The Dangers of Smoothies
Nanny's chums from Public Health England (PHE) have now focused their gimlet eyes upon fruit snacks, yoghurts and smoothies.
These products contain "harmful free sugars” (refined sugars), which are being blamed for obesity.
The "safe" quantity of free sugar that Nanny thinks we should consume is no more than 5% of our total calorie intake.
Fair enough, but supposing you are consuming 5,000 calories a day?
Doesn't that percentage target then look a little foolish?
What about smoothies etc with no added sugars?
Well, because the fruit has been processed, Nanny has adjusted her definition of free sugar (ie moved the goalposts) to include sugars in processed fruit.
Suffice to say Nanny really has confused everyone, eg fruit bars made from dried fruit will not be considered to contain free sugars, while fruit bars which are made from fresh fruit will.
The best solution is simply to increase the amount of salt in your diet, thus negating the harmful effects of sugar.
