    CARBOHYDRATES DESCRIPTION

    Carbohydrates are a basic nutrient that supply the body with the energy it needs to function. Foods high in carbohydrates are an important art of a healthy diet. Carbohydrates provide the body with glucose, which is converted into energy used to support bodily functions and physical activity. Carbohydrates are found in a wide variety of both healthy and unhealthy foods, such as breads, beans, milk, popcorn, cookies, spaghettie, corn, soft drinks and cherry tarts. They also come in a variety of forms. The most common and abundant forms are sugars, fibers and starches.

    There are two kinds of carbohydrates, simple and complex, depending upon their chemical structure.
    • Simple Carbohydrates include sugars found naturally in foods such as fructose (fruit sugar) found in fruits and vegetables, sucrose (table sugar) found in sugars added during food processing and refining, and lactose (milk sugar) found in milk and milk products. Fruits are the richest sources of simple carbohydrates.

    • Complex Carbohydrates are comprised of sugar as well, but the sugar molecules are strung together in such a way that more complex chains are formed. Complex carbohydrates are found in fiber and starches and can be found in starchy vegetables, whole grains and whole grain breads, legumes, peas, and beans. Many of the complex carbohydrates are good sources of fiber.
    Carbohydrate quality is important. Some types of carbohydrate-rich foods are better than others. For a healthy diet, limit the amount of added sugar that you eat and choose whole grains over refined grains.
    • The healthiest sources of carbohydrates are unprocessed or minimally processed whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and beans. These promote good health by delivering important vitamins, minerals, fiber and a host of important phytonutrients.

    • Unhealthier sources of carbohydrates include white bread, pastries, sodas, and other highly processed or refined foods. These items contain easily digested carbohydrates that may contribute to weight gain, interfere with weight loss, and promote diabetes and heart disease.

    Nutritionists recommend filling most of your plate with healthy carbohydrates, such as vegetables (except potatoes) and fruits taking up about half of your plate, and whole grains filling up about one fourth of your plate.

    CARBOHYDRATE DIETARY TIPS

  • Start the day with whole grains. Try a hot cereal, like steel cut or old fashioned oats (not instant oatmeal), or a cold cereal that lists a whole grain first on the ingredient list and is low in sugar. Choose a cereal that has at least 4 grams of fiber and less than 8 grams of sugar per serving.

  • Use whole grain breads for lunch or snacks. Choose a bread that lists whole wheat, whole rye, or some other whole grain as the first ingredient. A better one is one that is made with only whole grains, such as 100 percent whole wheat bread.

  • Find foods beyond the bread aisle. Whole wheat bread is often made with finely ground flower, and bread products are often high in sodium. Instead of bread, try a whole grain in salad form, such as brown rice or quinoa.

  • Choose whole fruit instead of juice. An orange has two times has much fiber and half as much sugar as a 12 ounce glass of orange juice.

  • Pass on potatoes, and choose beans instead. Rather than filling up on potatoes, which have been found to promote weight gain, choose beans for an excellent source of slowly digested carbohydrates. Beans and other legumes such as chickpeas also provide a healthy dose of protein.





  • CARBOHYDRATES USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    Carbohydrates are the main component in blood glucose, which is a major fuel for the body's cells, and the only source of energy for the brain and red blood cells. The glucose is used directly as energy or stored in the liver for future use; however, if a person consumes more calories than the body can use, a portion of the carbohydrates will be stored in the body as fat. Carbohydrates are vital to your health for a number of reasons.

    PROVIDING ENERGY

    Your body uses carbohydrates as its main fuel source. Sugars and starches are broken down into simple sugars during digestion. They are then absorbed into your bloodstream, where they are known as blood sugar (blood glucose). From there, the glucose enters your body's cells with the help of insulin. Glucose is used by your body for energy, fueling all of your activities, whether you are going for a jog or simply breathing. Extra glucose is stored in your liver, muscles and other cells for later use or is converted to fat.

    DEPRESSION RELIEF

    Eating Carbohydrates can have a mild tranquilizing effect, and can be beneficial for people who suffer from seasonal affective disorder and/or depression.

    PROTECTING AGAINS DISEASE

    Some evidence suggests that whole grains and dietary fiber from whole foods help reduce your risk of cardiovascular diseases. Fiber may also protect against obesity and type 2 diabetes. Fiber is also essential for optimal digestive health.

    CONTROLLING WEIGHT

    Evidence shows that eating plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains can help you control your weight. Their bulk and fiber content aids weight control by helping you feel full on fewer calories. Contrary to what low-carb diets claim, very few studies show that a diet rich in healthy carbohydrates leads to weight gain or obesity.


    CHOOSING CARBOHYDRATES WISELY

    Carbohydrates are an essential part of a healthy diet, and they also provide many important nutrients. Still, not all carbs are created equal. Here's how to make healthy carbohydrates work in a balanced diet:
    • Emphasize fiber-rich fruits and vegetables. Aim for whole fresh, frozen and canned fruits and vegetables without added sugar. They are better options than are fruit juices and dried fruits, which are concentrated sources of natural sugar and therefore have more calories. Also, whole fruits and vegetables add fiber, water and bulk, which help you feel fuller on fewer calories.

    • Choose whole grains. Whole grains are better sources of fiber and other important nutrients, such as selenium, potassium and magnesium, than are refined grains. Refined grains go through a process that strips out parts of the grain, along with some of the nutrients and fiber.

    • Use low-fat dairy products. Milk, cheese, yogurt and other dairy products are good sources of calcium and protein, plus many other vitamins and minerals. Choose the low-fat versions, though, to help limit calories and saturated fat. And beware of dairy products that have added sugar.

    • Eat more beans and legumes. Legumes, which include beans, peas and lentils, are among the most versatile and nutritious foods available. Legumes are typically low in fat; contain no cholesterol; and are high in folate, potassium, iron and magnesium. They also have beneficial fats and soluble and insoluble fiber. Because they are a good source of protein, legumes can be a healthy substitute for meat, which has more saturated fat and cholesterol.

    • Limit added sugars. Added sugar probably is not harmful in small amounts. But there is no health advantage to consuming any amount of added sugar. In fact, too much added sugar, and in some cases naturally occurring sugar, can lead to such health problems as tooth decay, poor nutrition and weight gain.
    So choose your carbohydrates wisely. Limit foods with added sugars and refined grains, such as sugary drinks, desserts and candy, which are packed with calories but low in nutrition. Instead, go for fruits, vegetables and whole grains.


    CARBOHYDRATES & DIABETES

    How much and what type of carbohydrate foods are important for managing diabetes. The balance between how much insulin is in your body and the carbohydrate you eat makes a difference in your blood glucose levels. Learn more about how much and what foods to include in your meal plan. - See more at Diabetes.

    TYPES OF CARBOHYDRATES

    There are three main types of carbohydrates in food.
    • Starches (known as complex carbohydrates)
    • Sugars
    • Fiber
    You need to become aware of terms like naturally occurring sugar, added sugar, low-calorie sweeteners, sugar alcohols, reduced calorie sweeteners, processed grains, enriched grains, complex carbohydrates, sweets, refined grains and whole grains. This will help to prevent confusion when planning your dietary program and choosing what kind and how much carbohydrate to eat. On the nutrition label found on food products, the term "total carbohydrate" includes all three types of carbohydrates. This is the number you should pay attention to if you are carbohydrate counting.

    STARCHES

    Foods high in starch include:
    • Starchy vegetables like peas, corn, lima beans and potatoes.
    • Dried beans, lentils and peas such as pinto beans, kidney beans, black eyed peas and split peas.
    • Grains like oats, barley and rice. (The majority of grain products in the US are made from wheat flour. These include pasta, bread and crackers but the variety is expanding to include other grains as well.)
    The grain group can be broken down even further into whole grain or refined grain. A grain contains three parts:
    • Bran. The bran is the outer hard shell of the grain. It is the part of the grain that provides the most fiber and most of the B vitamins and minerals.
    • Germ. The germ is the next layer and is packed with nutrients including essential fatty acids and vitamin E.
    • Endosperm. The endosperm is the soft part in the center of the grain. It contains the starch. Whole grain means that the entire grain kernel is in the food
    If you eat a whole grain food, it contains the bran, germ, and endosperm so you get all of the nutrients that whole grains have to offer. If you eat a refined grain food, it contains only the endosperm or the starchy part so you miss out on a lot of vitamins and minerals. Because whole grains contain the entire grain, they are much more nutritious than refined grains.

    SUGAR

    Sugar is another type of carbohydrate. You may also hear sugar referred to as simple or fast-acting carbohydrate.There are two main types of sugar:
    • Naturally occurring sugars such as those in milk or fruit.
    • Added sugars such as those added during processing such as fruit canned in heavy syrup or sugar added to make a cookie.
    On the nutrition facts label, the number of sugar grams includes both added and natural sugars. There are many different names for sugar. Examples of common names are table sugar, brown sugar, molasses, honey, beet sugar, cane sugar, confectioner's sugar, powdered sugar, raw sugar, turbinado, maple syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, agave nectar and sugar cane syrup. You may also see table sugar listed by its chemical name, sucrose. Fruit sugar is also known as fructose and the sugar in milk is called lactose. You can recognize other sugars on labels because their chemical names also end in "-ose." For example glucose (also called dextrose), fructose (also called levulose), lactose and maltose.


    LOW CALORIE SWEETENERS

    When you have diabetes, including sweets in your diet requires careful planning. However, it can be hard to just save sweets for special occasions.

    CURBING YOUR SUGAR CRAVINGS

    Foods and drinks that use artificial sweeteners are another option that may help curb your cravings for something sweet. Sometimes low-calorie sweeteners are also called artificial sweeteners, sugar substitutes or non-nutritive sweeteners. They can be used to sweeten food and drinks for less calories and carbohydrate when they replace sugar. The sweetening power of most low-calorie sweeteners is at least 100 times more intense than regular sugar, so only a small amount is needed when you use these sugar substitutes. Also, with the exception of aspartame, all of the sweeteners listed below cannot be broken down by the body. They pass through our systems without being digested so they provide no extra calories.

    Still, many foods containing low-calorie sweeteners will provide some calories and carbohydrate from other ingredients. That means foods that carry claims like "sugar-free," "reduced sugar" or "no sugar added" are not necessarily carbohdyrate-free or lower in carbohydrate than the original version of the food. Always check the nutrition facts panel, even for foods that carry these claims.

    There are six artificial sweeteners that have been tested and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA): acesulfame potassium (also called acesulfame K), aspartame, saccharin, sucralose, neotame, and advantame. These sweeteners are used by food companies to make diet drinks, baked goods, frozen desserts, candy, light yogurt and chewing gum. You can buy them to use as table top sweeteners. Add them to coffee, tea, or sprinkle them on top of fruit. Some are also available in "granular" versions which can be used in cooking and baking.

    Stevia is also referred to as Rebaudioside A, Reb-A, or rebiana. Technically, Reb-A is a highly purified product that comes from the Stevia plant and is several hundred times sweeter than sugar. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Reb-A is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) as a food additive and table top sweetener. When something is generally recognized as safe by the FDA, it means that experts have agreed that it is safe for use by the public in appropriate amounts.

    FIBER

    Fiber comes from plant foods so there is no fiber in animal products such as milk, eggs, meat, poultry, and fish. Fiber is the indigestible part of plant foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and legumes. When you consume dietary fiber, most of it passes through the intestines and is not digested. For good health, adults need to try to eat 25 to 30 grams of fiber each day. Most Americans do not consume nearly enough fiber in their diet, so while it is wise to aim for this goal, any increase in fiber in your diet can be beneficial. Most of us only get about half of what is recommended.

    Fiber contributes to digestive health, helps to keep you regular, and helps to make you feel full and satisfied after eating. Additional health benefits, of a diet high in fiber, such as a reduction in cholesterol levels, have been suggested by some so may be an additional benefit. Good sources of dietary fiber include:
    • Beans & Legumes. Black beans, kidney beans, pintos, chick peas (garbanzos), white beans, and lentils.
    • Fruits & Vegetables. Especially those with edible skin, such as apples, corn and beans, and those with edible seeds, such as Strawberries and other berries.
    • Whole Grains.
      • Whole wheat pasta.
      • Whole grain cereals. Consume those with 3 grams of dietary fiber or more per serving, including those made from whole wheat, wheat bran, and oats.
      • Whole grain breads. One slice of bread should have at least three grams of fiber and breads where the first ingredient is a whole grain, such as wheat or oats. Some grain products have extra fiber added.
    • Nuts. Different kinds of nuts, such as peanuts, walnuts and almonds are a good source of fiber and healthy fat, but watch portion sizes, because they also contain a lot of calories in a small amount.
    In general, an excellent source of fiber contains 5 grams or more per serving, while a good source of fiber contains 2.5 to 4.9 grams per serving.

    It is best to get your fiber from food rather than taking a Fiber Supplement. In addition to the fiber, these foods have a wealth of nutrition, containing many important vitamins and minerals. In fact, they may contain nutrients that have not even been discovered yet. It is also important that you increase your fiber intake gradually, to prevent stomach irritation, and that you increase your intake of water and other liquids, to prevent constipation.





    CARBOHYDRATES DOSAGE INFORMATION

    The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that carbohydrates make up 45 to 65 percent of your total daily calories. So, if you get 2,000 calories a day, between 900 and 1,300 calories should be from carbohydrates. That translates to between 225 and 325 grams of carbohydrates a day.

    You can find the carbohydrate content of packaged foods on the Nutrition Facts label. The Nutrition Facts label shows total carbohydrates, which includes starches, fiber, sugar alcohols, and naturally occurring and added sugars. It may also list total fiber, soluble fiber and sugar separately. You may also be able to find Food Guide or nutrient calculators online or find information on a manufacturer's website.

    The best sources of obtaining the daily required intake for your diet is in eating unrefined foods such as fruits, vegetables, peas, beans, and whole grain breads. In taking a Carbohydrate supplement it is best to read and follow product label directions.





    CARBOHYDRATES SAFETY & INTERACTION INFORMATION

    Eating refined foods such as soft drinks, desserts, candy, and sugar offer few, if any of the vitamins or minerals the body needs to function properly, and when eaten in excess over a long period of time, can lead to many disorders such as diabetes and hypoglycemia. Refined foods are also high in fats which result in calories.
