What is YOUR Milk Preference?

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

Whether it comes from a carton, a glass jar, or a plastic jug, cow’s milk is generally what most people are used to drinking. Did you know there are different kinds of milk? So, with so many different kinds of milk in grocery stores how do we know which ones to choose?

  • Soy Milk – Made from an extract of soy beans and is typically mixed with water and a natural sweetener.
  • Rice Milk – Made from a mixture of partially milled rice and water.
  • Organic Milk – Comes from cows that have been fed organic feed, roam freely, or graze on pesticide free grass.
  • Raw Milk – Comes from cows but is not pasteurized.

Cow’s milk is generally pasteurized but some people believe that you should try raw cow’s milk to ensure you are getting as many nutrients as possible. Pasteurization is the process that kills all of the harmful bacteria in raw milk by heating it to a specific temperature for a specific amount of time. Pasteurization was developed by Louis Pasteur in 1864, as a means of killing organisms responsible for diseases like typhoid fever, tuberculosis, and diphtheria.

Cow’s milk that has been pasteurized offers 9 essential nutrients such as:

  • Calcium                          
  • Protein
  • Potassium
  • Phosphorus
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin A
  • Riboflavin (B2)
  •  Niacin

What if you’re a vegan or your poor tummy can’t digest cow’s milk? There are a a lot of different choices. We suggest trying rice milk or soy milk.

Soy milk is dairy-free and made from an extract of soy beans. It is typically mixed with water and a natural sweetener so it tastes and looks similar cow’s milk. Soy milk often has calcium and vitamin D added to it to increase its nutritional value.

Rice milk is also dairy-freeand is made from a mixture of partially milled rice and water. It often has vitamin A, vitamin D, B vitamins, calcium and iron added to enhance its nutritional benefits.

No matter what you choose,it is important to keep a balanced diet. To get the full benefits of cow’s milk and these nine essential nutrients, the USDA recommends adults and children to consume two to three servings of milk (or cheese or yogurt) each day. A serving size is 1 cup of milk or yogurt, 1.5 ounces of natural cheese or 2 ounces of processed cheese.

High-Fructose Corn Syrup VS Sugar – Pros and Cons

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

 What do you really know about high-fructose corn syrup and sugar? The media often portrays sugar and high-fructose corn syrup as the main culprit in obesity. But what’s the difference between high-fructose corn syrup and sugar?

High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a common sweetener. Research shows that high-fructose corn syrup is chemically similar to table sugar. Fructose, part of HFCS, is a naturally occurring simple sugar that’s produced by nature. It is more soluble in water than glucose. Glucose is another simple sugar that is also made in nature. When you put fructose and glucose together it becomes a basic form of table sugar.

Corn syrup is made from corn starch and has a high content of glucose. It is combined with fructose to make high fructose corn syrup. There is controversy over how the body reacts to high-fructose corn syrup instead of table sugar because it is made chemically.

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), there are two types of sugars in American diets: naturally occurring sugars and added sugars. Women should consume no more than 100 calories per day (about 6 teaspoons of sugar). Men should consume about 150 calories per day (about 9 teaspoons).

 

Tips from the American Heart Association for Reducing Sugar in Your Diet

* Don’t add sugar to cereal, grits, or oatmeal. Try fresh fruit or dried fruit instead.

* Instead of adding sugar in recipes use various spices or extracts to increase flavor.

* Try non-nutritive sweeteners such as aspartame, sucralose or saccharin. The FDA has determined that non-nutritive sweeteners are safe.

* Cut back on the amount of sugar added to things you eat or drink regularly like coffee or tea.

* Buy sugar-free or low-calorie beverages.

* Buy fresh fruit!

The next time you are in Bridgeport Cafe, think twice about adding lots of sugar to your breakfast and consider adding fresh fruit instead!
