Weird thought...

Watching Food TV the other day, they mentioned the amount of sugar that can be hiding in one's food. That's hardly any major surprise, but they were somewhat sensationalist about things. (A lot of what they do is pretty sensationalist, but... *shrug*) Anyhow, I already noticed the inventive 'portion sizes' companies put on their boxes having occasionally read food labels when bored and waiting for things, but I was a bit surprised at the amount of sugar per cup of apple juice: 24g / 250mL. That's 6 tsp. (10.8 tsp per 450mL bottle assuming 4 g/tsp a la sucrose.) Umm...? But the thing is that I don't know if that's a lot or not so much. It *sounds* like a lot. I certainly wouldn't enjoy eating 6 tsp of sugar (maybe I would've liked it when I was a kid, but not now). So I thought I'd look at something a bit closer to home. Lemonade:

3/4 c sugar
juice of 6 lemons/limes (+zest of 1-2 fruits)
water

Normally this makes ~1.25L. The verdict? ~7.5 tsp / 250mL (not including the natural sugars in the blueberries I add to my lemonade). ^^;; Maybe I should try cutting the sugar down to 1/2 c when making this stuff... *laughs*

BTW, is anyone else watching the 100 Mile Diet? (Odd, the one thing I will watch on TV is cooking shows. I generally watch so little else... ^^; )

Mrf. No more procrastinating. >.>
