Sweets Vs dry fruits. It’s an ongoing, closely fought battle for demand this Diwali.
Fructose (fruit sugar) is broken down slower by the body allowing the body to react more efficiently to the sugar you have just eaten, sucrose (sweet sugar) is broken down quicker by the body and can cause your body's natural sugar levels to change more quickly.
Thus dried fruits are always better an option than sweets in this Diwali. But Dried fruits has some disadvantages. If these disadvantages are not kept in mind then one tend to consume more calories than consuming sweets or fresh fruits.
Key points to remember:
To conclude when consumed in moderation dried fruits are far better than sweets this DIWALI. Just keep an eye on the portion size of the dries fruits you consume to restrict yourselves from consuming more calories and more fructose.
