[Comparison of Sugar and Fiber of Cereal] It is very common for the public to have cereal with milk or yogurt as breakfast or afternoon tea. However, do you know their sugar and dietary fiber content?
According to the Centre for Food Safety, based on an adult with 2000-kcal daily intake, the intake of added sugar should be less than 50 grams. The sugar content (24g) of 2 portions of Kellogg’s Frosties is already as much as half of the sugar intake upper limit.
If you are a chocolate lover but worry about the sugar content, Mini chocos weetabix may be an alternative to Koko Krunch. With less sugar but high dietary fiber content, Nestle Cheerios Whole Grain Oat Breakfast would be a better option.
Long-term intake of added sugar not only increases the risk of chronic diseases, but also affects endocrine and your sense of hunger. Added sugar also fastens skin aging and affects your concentration.
Besides, solid food with 6 grams or more of dietary fiber per 100 grams can be defined as high-fiber food. Dietary fiber helps stimulate intestinal peristalsis and prevents constipation, and prolongs satiety. It also slows down sugar absorption and stabilizes blood sugar.
