The truth about artificial sweeteners!

Sweet treats are all around us in the form of candy, soda, desserts and lot more… the only thing that stops us from digging into them is the "sugar", and therefore the amount of calories.

There are so many low-cal options available from saccharin and sucralose to jaggery and honey. But which ones are the safest? Take a closer look at the ingredients in your low-cal sweetener before you buy it. Here's a low down on sugar substitutes:
Saccharin
"It is meant to be the best alternate sweetener as it does not raise blood sugar levels, does not contain calories and is up to 200 to 700 times sweeter than sugar," says Mumbai-based dietician Sushila Sharangdhar. Used in making jams, chewing gums, bakery products and confectioneries, it is said to cause allergic reaction in a few. "Saccharin was banned because it was found to be carcinogenic," says nutritionist Naini Setalvad.
Aspartame
"The calories in Aspartame are negligible. But, it could cause vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and fatigue in some," says Sushila. Also, it is up to 150 times sweeter than sugar. "When metabolised, the bi-product of aspartame is methanol, that could damage your brain in the long run," says Setalvad. It is usually used in products that need longer shelf life like soft drinks and syrups.

Those with phenylketonuria (an inherited disorder that increases the levels of a substance called phenylalanine in the blood which is found in protein foods and artificial sweeteners. If untreated, this condition can build up to harmful levels in the body, causing intellectual disability and other serious health problems) should definitely avoid aspartame.

Sucralose
Sucalose is a non-nutritive sweetener that does not raise blood sugar levels and can therefore be consumed by diabetics. "It is sold under the name of Splenda and is made of sugar. But, the calories are again negligible. However, it is treated by chemicals like chlorine, methanol and acetic acid and therefore is not safe," says Sushila. It could be eventually harmful to your health. "It was banned by the FDA (Food and drug administration) as it caused neuro-toxic side effects," says Setalvad.
Neotame
"Neotame is a newer version of aspartame. Except it does not put those with the phenylketonuria condition under risk," says Sushila. But, since it is nearly 13,000 times sweeter than sugar, it has to be used sparingly. Any long term health hazards related to neotame is not known. Low in calories, it does not raise blood sugar levels either. It is rapidly metabolised and is eliminated from the body.

Stevia
"Since it is derived from the extract of a herb, it is one of the low-cal alternates to sugar. But, since it is 100 times sweeter than sugar, its use should be limited. It does not raise blood sugar levels," explains Sushila. "Since it is completely natural too, it can be consumed by diabetics," says Setalvad. There are no known side-effects to stevia, except for the feeling of fullness and nausea.

Agave syrup
Agave syrup or agave nectar is also a plant-based sweetener. " It is upto 50% sweeter than sugar, contains 90% fructose and does not raise blood sugar levels," says Sushila. It is absorbed slowly into the body than sugar, releasing constant energy. However, the process of converting the starch in agave to the concentrated sweetener is enzymatic (produced by enzymes which are proteins that catalyze and create bi-products). Agave therefore is not considered a natural and safe substitute for sugar.

Other substitutes
Jaggery is a concentrated form of sugarcane juice. It is a healthier form of sweetener as it contains iron and fibre. However, it is advisable for diabetics to limit the intake of jaggery. The main component in jaggery is sucrose and therefore it is a good source of energy.

Honey, another natural sweetener is about three times sweeter than sugar. "It is mainly made up of fructose and glucose. Which means, if diabetics cut down the intake of sugar in other forms like processed foods, it can easily be substituted by jaggery and honey," says Sushila. Honey is also healthier as it contains vitamins B2, B6 and trace elements like copper, iron and magnesium.

Old cloths, New style

How many times does it happen that the blouse you tried on at the shop looked smart, but the moment you wear it at home, you begin to notice problems. Either it is too loose or too long, and in exasperation, you just tuck it away out of sight.

Here are some ideas to breathe new life into old clothes, but which are still in very good condition.

You must have noticed that salwar kameez suits start looking worn out after a couple of washes, but the dupattas or stoles don’t look so. Take a cue from this and turn the dupatta into a snazzy shirt or kurti? Nobody will remember the suit, but they will compliment your shirt.

Remember that XL flowery top you liked and bought immediately? Instead of tightening it from the wrong place, just trim it now. At the bottom of the top, sew on an elastic band. Not only will the elastic stop it from billowing away, it will make you look 5kgs less, and very feminine.

Pull out all the long kurtas you haven’t looked at for the last one year, chances are you won’t even now. Snip them away to make a kurti! For a completely new look remove sleeves or add sleeves made from a net fabric. They are very ‘in’ these days.

Snip away the top part of some kurta and add instead spaghetti straps. Give your wardrobe a whole new meaning.

You can even snip way one shoulder of a dress to give it a toga-look. Just make sure you either are very good yourself at this kind of handiwork or have a wonderful tailor to help you achieve the desired look.

Fancy that black dress, but feel strangulated in the Chinese collars? What are you waiting for, just pick up a scissor and change the neck shape. Make it square, round or the most sexy, boat-neck. Just snip away the collar-area and with some careful sewing, you have an almost new garment.

There are plenty of acrylic paints in the market. Buy a dozen colours and draw random figures on plain t-shirts. An inexpensive way of wearing something exclusive and very stylish.

Sew on ribbons on the edge of a collar or sleeves. They look feminine and different.

Now, a car that moisturises your skin!

It's time to stop stashing cosmetics in your handbag - now moisturise your skin while you drive. Japanese car manufacturer Nissan has developed an air filter that dispenses vitamin C into a car's cabin, moisturising the skin of its occupants. Nissan says that direct application of vitamin C to the skin helps to create collagen and elastin, which keep skin looking young and healthy. The vitamin stimulates the body's metabolism to supply more moisture to the skin.

An hour's drive is more effective than applying moisturising cream, say its creators. "We are already cleaning the air in the cabin, so we thought we could add something into the air as well," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted climate system engineer Yuzuru Yoshinami, as saying. The filter has to be replaced every 12 months and is twice as expensive as a regular filter. The idea came up after customers complained about air-conditioning drying out their skin on longer journeys. Nissan's next projects include odour-reducing ioniser and posture-improving seats that improve circulation on longer journeys. "Our [ergonomics] strategy has evolved from the reduction of discomfort to enhancement of health and wellbeing," said the company's ergonomics manager, Satoshi Kitazaki
