Does Brown Sugar Feed Cancer Cells?
By: Bingjie Hong
The main cause of cancer of black sugar is acrylamide produced by Maillard reaction during processing. In fact, acrylamide does not only exist in brown sugar, but also can be produced in foods after frying, roasting, frying or heating. The visual expression of Maillard's reaction is that the color of food becomes darker. On the contrary, the darker the color of food becomes during heating, the more "severe" the Maillard reaction is generally, and the more acrylamide will be produced. However, the content of acrylamide in brown sugar and the limited amount of brown sugar normally consumed by the human body are not enough to cause harm to the human body, so we don‘t need to be worried.
Brown sugar, black sugar, yellow granulated sugar and white granulated sugar are almost the same. The main component is sugar, and the content of other nutrients is very few. Red granulated sugar, brown sugar, black sugar, yellow granulated sugar and white granulated sugar all belong to sucrose. Their nutritional components vary slightly depending on the degree of processing. The nutritional components of red granulated sugar, brown sugar, black sugar and yellow granulated sugar, such as iron, are relatively higher than white granulated sugar, but these differences can be ignored.
Therefore, it is recommended that a small amount of brown sugar, black sugar, yellow granulated sugar and white granulated sugar be occasionally eaten as a flavoring agent in daily diet.
