Apples vs Apple Juice.
March 6, 2014 Admin 1
Fruit Juice is still widely promoted as a healthy thing to consume, a dieter’s delight and generally something ideal to give to children instead of soft drinks like cola. Nothing can be further from the truth. Besides saturating the body with fructose, which if you have been following this site or our sister site robertbarrington.net you’ll know is not something beneficial to your health, it also has other undesirable effects on appetite and the mechanisms of proper weight control.
Way back in 1981, the University of Bristol in the UK used subjects to test the differences on ingestion between apples, apple sauce and apple juice. Each meal contained the same total amount of carbohydrates. Ten people were given apples, ten apple sauce and ten were given apple juice. As a point of note, it took 17 minutes to eat the apples, six minutes to eat the apple sauce and just 90 seconds to haul down the juice. It should be of no surprise to learn that those that consumed the apples reported higher levels of satiety then those who consumed the juice with the apple sauce group somewhere in the middle.
Going beyond the subjective reports of satisfaction after consuming the apples, the study also reported that changes in blood sugar and insulin levels across the three groups provided a physiological basis for the subjects personal evaluation. Blood sugar rose to similar levels after all three groups consumed their apple meals. But the insulin levels of those who consumed the juice, rose twice as high as the group who consumed the fruit ‘as is’. Three hours after the meals were consumed, those that ate the whole apples had a blood sugar level the same as before they consumed the fruit. Those that consumed the juice showed blood sugar levels distinctly lower than the levels that were measured before the juice was consumed.
