Sucrose: Dietary Sucrose and Disease

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Sucrose is present naturally in a number of foods and is one of the most common sweeteners added to the human diet. There is concern regarding the high proportion of daily calories derived from simple sugars in the modern diet. Adverse health effects associated with sucrose intake that have been proposed include facilitation of excess caloric intake, excess weight gain, dilutional effects of essential nutrients, and increased risk for dental caries, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases.
