The answer to the question “Why is fruit sugar a better alternative than processed sugar?” is because of these reasons: Processed sugars contain sucrose, high fructose and high glucose. Although our body needs sugar, as what we commonly hear when we were still kids, too much sugar is bad for our health. Hence, a lot of people recommend eating fruit so that it supplement natural sugars that our body needs to function properly.
Natural sugars are what we can get from fruits, vegetables and honey and they are all known sources of glucose and fructose. Both sugars are neither better or worse for the body, but since fruits are also know sources of vitamins, water and antioxidants, it helps our body to process these natural sugars and prevent or slow down the release of insulin.
