Unfortunately, some of the key food products which we consider as healthy are actually junk food.
1. Low-Fat and Fat-Free Food
Saturated fat and low fat is actually a misnomer and proper research needs to be done on this. Most saturated and low-fat foods are in fact rich in sugar. If consumed in excess, it can lead to health problems.
2. Salad Dressings
We often think that salad dressings are a healthy option. Most commercial salad dressings are high on sugar, Trans fats, vegetable oils and artificial chemicals. You should always check the ingredient list before you munch your favorite salad at any commercial event or ceremony.
3. Fruit Juice
Fruit juice commercially available in the market is actually rich in liquid sugar and consists added flavors. In fact, many of these are the sugar-sweetened beverage. Ideally, consume natural fruit juice in place of flavored juice products.
4. Whole Wheat
Whole wheat products are not in fact made from whole wheat. These have been pulverized into fine flour which can increase your blood sugar.
Take care while consuming sports drinks too as these also have a high content of electrolytes and sugar.
