The important thing is not to use any sugar at all, as sugar (glucose, sucrose, and etc) will give you a spike in your blood sugar. Sugar is poison! Well, actually, according to Paracelsus, everything is poison, its just a matter of dose. Drink 20 litres of water at one go, and its a lethal dose. The problem with sugar is that it has such a narrow therapeutic window; exceed the limit ever so slightly and your health will very quickly end up in trouble.
Many thanks to my biochemist foodie and juicer buddy Adibah Azhari for her many hours of patient tutorials explaining the basics and differences between fatty acids, MCT and polysaccharides, to Datuk Dr Hashim Bin Abdul-Wahab for his inspiration and kind advice when I visited him at his home in Bangi last year. You all have been so kind, helpful and so sharing of your learned knowledge and wisdom — I’m so blessed to have such wonderful friends…
