Does sugar really give us more energy?

        When most people think of sugar, they typically associate it with candy, soda, and dessert . However, sugar is found in many other foods. For example, most breads are high in a type of sugar called glucose. Fruit can have high levels of sugar called fructose, which makes it sweet.

        Many people think sugar can give them more energy. The sudden boost of energy after people eat something sweet is called a sugar high. It is believed that this phenomenon happens when the amount of sugar in a person’s blood is higher than normal. Therefore, people may feel a sudden rush of energy when they eat candy. Maybe you have had this feeling after eating dessert or drinking something sweet.

        It is also a common belief that sugar makes children hyper. This idea became popular because of a book that promoted the idea that children would be less hyper if they ate less sugar. Parents loved this idea because controlling how much sugar their children ate seemed like an easy way to manage their children’s behavior.

糖真的能提供我們更多能量嗎?

當大多數人想到糖時,他們通常會將其與糖果、汽水和甜點聯想 在一起。然而,糖存在於其他許多食物中。例如,大多數麵包都富含 一種叫做葡萄糖的糖。水果含有高含量使它變甜的糖,稱為果糖。

許多人認為糖可以給他們更多的能量。人們在吃甜食後突然精力 充沛被稱為食糖後興奮感。人們相信,當一個人血液中的糖分高於正 常值時,就會發生這種現象。因此,人們在吃糖果時可能會突然感到 精力充沛。也許你在吃甜點或喝甜飲後有過這種感覺。

人們普遍認為糖會使孩子變得亢奮。這個想法之所以會普及,是 因為有一本書推廣如果孩子少吃糖就不會那麼亢奮的想法。父母們喜 歡這個想法,因為控制孩子吃多少糖似乎是管理孩子行為的一種簡單 方法。
