About sugar

We know that carbohydrates create energy in the body in the form of glucose, which is the only source of energy for red blood cells and the primary source of energy for the brain, the central nervous system, and during pregnancy for the placenta and the fetus.  It is recommended to consume around 130 grams of carbohydrates a day: this data is based on the minimum amount of carbohydrates (sugars and starches) necessary to supply the brain with an adequate quantity of glucose.
