How you can benefit from the cane sugar in our Belvas Chocolate
Potential Health Benefits of Cane Sugar
Did you know our Belgium Chocolate has only cane sugar in it. Many people believe that alternative sweeteners like honey, brown sugar, or molasses are healthier than cane sugar. However, that’s not necessarily true. Sugar is a type of simple carbohydrate that your body uses for energy.
Honey, brown sugar, and other sugars have no nutritional advantages over cane sugar.
Some of the ways you can benefit in Cane sugar can help you:
Have more energy. Your body’s primary source of energy is a simple sugar called “glucose,” which comes from the breakdown of sugars. You'll usually find sugars in fruits, dairy products, and grains. But your body processes cane sugar the same way it processes sugar found in any other kind of food. It splits both into two simple sugars— fructose and glucose. The glucose molecules are then carried to the cells to be converted into energy.
Store energy as healthy fats. Much has been said about fats, but as much as we try to cut them, we need them. When you take in more glucose than your body needs for energy, the excess gets stored as glycogen in fat cells and the liver. This process helps your body’s blood glucose level return to normal
As long as you don’t take in more calories than you use, this storage of energy is healthy — like having a big gas tank in your car so you don’t have to fill it up as often. It allows your body to keep functioning without needing to eat constantly. As with everything in life you should always enjoy in moderation.
It can also help you to have a better mood. Cane sugar triggers the body to create serotonin, a feel-good hormone that raises your mood. Dips in your body’s serotonin levels are why you crave sugar, especially when you’re tired or unhappy. You get a mood boost from serotonin when you eat sugary treats.
You also help your body manage your stress levels. Under stress, your brain needs about 12% more energy, and the glucose from cane sugar can help provide the fuel you need.
