Facts About Turbinado Sugar

Post by Ken0069 » Fri Jul 28, 2017 8:32 am

Last year in June I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus and Sjogrens Syndrome, which brought with it Poly Arthritis. One of the things the Rhumatologist I was seeing at that time suggested was a noninflammatory diet. As you might already know, diets look good on paper but they are just guideline because one size does not fit all where food is concerned.

So my Darling Wife set out on a mission to try to modify this diet to fit my tastes while still keeping my health conditions in mind. One of the things that got close scrutiny was processed white sugar, which among other things is a no no for anyone with arthritis. What she found is called Turbinado Sugar and it's probably the closest thing to raw cane sugar that you can get. So that sugar is what I've been using for the past year and I've got to say that along with the rest of that diet there is a big difference in joint pain that I was having before. That's especially important in light of the fact that I STOPPED taking the Lupus medications early in November of 2016 and now only occasionally use an over the counter meds when needed.

We also look at nutrition labels very closely and Sugar and Sodium are the two we try to minimize the most.

Ennywho, here's a link to some info on that Turbinado Sugar if you're interested in trying it and remember, you are what you eat.

I was Retired from the Army for reason of Traumatic Arthritis due to a major injury when I was 25. By the time I was 30, I was very affected from the Traumatic Arthritis and white sugar increased the pain by a large margin.

Any cooking where sugar is required, we use Turbinado Sugar in the least amount possible. Other than that, I use honey or real Maple Syurp as a sweetener. Again, as little as possible.

Corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners must be avoided also. One must read the ingredients. No white flour. For bread, I use Ezekiel bread. Made from 9 sprouted grains, no flour. Once you get used to it, you will not go back to bread from flour. No processed foods. Once you get used to eating this way, you will be much better off.

If white sugar was invented today, it would probably be a controlled substance.

Juice fasting is very effective for treating arthritis. The Army doctors told me that I would never make 50 years of age because of all the damage done. I am now 75 and I credit juice fasting to the increase, plus learning to eat right.

You are what you eat.

Eating whatever is handy and quick is OK if you want to have a shorter existence and deal with the pain. Nothing is easy. :shock:

And then the worse cooking oil of all time. All America was pretty healthy before the big push of Canola oil, which is genetically modified Rape seed oil. I think cooking with old non chemically treated crude oil would be safer to cook with. Canola always causes massive acid reflux for me. And
if it wasn't for canola the acid reflux pill industry would likely be gone.
Sugar? Then there is the pop industry, all they have to do is remove 2/3rds of the sweetener and the pop would taste much better. I can not drink straight pop, it has to be watered down with soda water.

Isn't, "Turbinado Sugar", just regular old brown sugar that is being marketed as, "new and improved"??

Don't you just love, "MARKETING", hype!!!

NO, it's not the same. Turbinado sugar is the closest thing you can get to pure cane sugar in a spoon. Buy a box of it and you'll see what I mean, ie, it's in small beeds that are almost the size of BBs and it's a translucent brownish gold in color, nothing like brown sugar and doesn't have the molasses in it that brown sugar does.
Turbinado, demerara and so-called "raw" sugars are made from crystallized, partially evaporated sugar cane juice and spun in a centrifuge to remove almost all of the molasses. The sugar crystals are large and golden-coloured. This sugar can be sold as is or sent to the refinery to produce white sugar.

Somebody tell Ken that the next time I go to the grocery store, I will buy a box of the stuff and try it.

Thanks,

PS., Years ago, while working for AP Green Refractories, I have installed refractories in three sugar plants.

Last week I turned two ppl, who suffer from arthritis, on to this stuff that also had never heard of it. Should know whether it works for them in a couple of weeks.

Here is some info you may be interested in, sometimes it's not what you eat but what you eat together.
http://www.colonhealthinfo.com/diet/separation_diet.htm

All nutritionist I have studied say to eliminate all wheat, all sugar and all dairy for 30 to 90 days and see what happens, then you can reintroduce one at a time and see what is causing issues...Sadly our food is't really food any more.

One thing I found with arthritis and muscle cramps was even though I was taking several different supplements with everything known to man none of the contained hardly any magnesium, I bought the cv brand and solved my problem, now I only take it a few times a year.

Alcohol is another no no as it converts to sugar.

Also a good source of local honey is a good sweetner to get away from sugar.
