May – Crouching Carbs, Hidden Sugar


Judy’s very own sugar spoon

May on Nourishment Network is carbs and sugar month. Look forward to a few weeks of comment and insight into these important and controversial ingredients. Never is the debate on food and health more heated, confusing and divisive that when it comes to sugar and carbohydrate, so get ready, we may be in for a bumpy ride.

Is sugar addictive? Is it toxic? Do carbs make you fat? Are the guidelines wrong when it comes to carbohydrates? Should we all be eating a low carb diet? Will a tax on sugar help fight obesity?

In all honesty, we will not be providing definitive answers to any of these questions, but throughout the month we will be sharing interesting, powerful, and insightful pieces on sugar and carbohydrates. Our contributors are set to include nutritionists, chefs, food writers, academics, campaigners and many more. All we can promise is that by the end of the month there will have been plenty of interesting stuff to read, and all of you will have learned something.

As usual, we don’t want to change the way you eat, we just want to make you think about food.
