  • Just how much energy in the form of sugar these carbs release into their bloodstream

  • Foods we've got a bagel and a chocolate muffin

  • Hey, I would say that that is more sugar than this one. Maybe two cubes for that one

  • We're calling this blood sugar bingo quell our volunteers

  • Guess the equivalent cubes of sugar in each of these foods. What do you think?

  • Five two minutes got let's go five. Okay, so you've gone for the the muffin as the slightly higher one

  • I'm just gonna add to that

  • So ten sugar cubes and that muffin this one so you've gone to two so it's more starchy less sugary

  • Yeah, let's just add this one Oh what well maybe not

  • More sugar, there's eleven sugar cube

  • In this bagel. I'm shocked. I won't lie. I'm shocked. Yeah what you're saying

  • Is that in the bagel when you eat it you chew it up and start to digest it

  • Your body is breaking that starch down into that quantity of sugar. Yes, privileged sugar. Yeah. Yeah exactly

  • This is a portion of white rice and then you've got nice bowl of strawberries, right? Yes

  • Let's go for five

  • Never approach ago was right

  • Strawberries I would half of that Bowl

  • They are sweet

  • Okay, so in this amount of strawberries there is

  • Four sugar cubes

  • Oh, yeah, so we'll only taste sweet

  • Actually, the amount of carbohydrate that they contain is is quite small

  • So let's compare that to this portion of rice then so you've gone for face. Oh,

  • Really it's grains of sugar that we know more that is that's just when you should the cube equivalents

  • There's 19 sugar cubes and in this jacket potatoes almost almost double what you something I'm so sorry. How do

  • Where they hide in order sugar

  • I think one of it one of the key things to take away from this is that looks can be deceiving

  • So just because a food doesn't necessarily taste sweet

  • Doesn't mean that there's not gonna be

  • sometimes an awful lot of sugar going into your system after you've eaten it the thing that this really Rams home for me is that

  • there was a huge amount of energy in a potato and that pile of glucose there that will your body will turn the potato into

  • Will be stored as fat unless you burn it off, you have to be careful about what you're putting in your mouth
