Carbohydrates (or Carbs) are contained in almost every food we eat. Even foods labeled as “Sugar-Free” or “No Sugar Added” can have carb content as against the common notion most people have that Sugar Free Products are Carbohydrates Free. Of course, sugar of any kind has carbohydrates but it is not the sole constituent that has carbs, i.e. ingredients like flour and rice which do not have sugar but starch, are also not devoid of carbohydrates.
But why are we talking about carbs?
Well because Carbohydrates are nutritional building blocks of a healthy diet and the proportion in which they are consumed greatly matter. However, excess intakes of carbohydrates on a regular basis can cause abnormal increase in blood sugar levels leading to a condition at some point where body does not make enough insulin to meet its needs. Such condition is called Type 2 Diabetes. Whereas consuming very low carb diets also invites numerous mineral and vitamin deficiencies.
Hence, it becomes very necessary for everyone particularly people with diabetes to count and consume daily carbohydrates in the adequate quantity.
