That's like saying, OMG, the salt container contains 100% sodium!!! We use sugar and salt with lots of things, but just add a little. We're not eating a bowl of this stuff. It's an add-on. Eating a piece of fruit is still eating sugar.
Salt container does not contains 100% sodium though

About 40%

His concern would be completely justified if it was 100% sodium

Sugar on the other hand is awful and its just empty calories. So you'll age quicker which brings on disease and terrible quality of life. Food corporations really don't care, they just want to force feed us this junk and profit Confused Face
Have you taken a biochemistry course? You probably should. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the human cell.

Mine shipped last night and was to be delivered today, but now showing "undeliverable". Going to take a while guess and say there was some leakage :D

I've heard that "sugar" is a generic name for sucrose, fructose, maltose, glucose, and may others molecules.

I've heard that excess glucose gets stored in the liver as glycogen or, with the help of insulin, converted into fatty acids, circulated to other parts of the body and stored as fat in adipose tissue.

Is biochemistry no longer teaching this?

The keyword here is excess. Don't eat 4 liters at once and everything will be fine.

oh boy this is probably the dumbest thing i've ever read on RFD or at least top 5 all time. What does needing glucose for energy have anything to do with anything? Practically 100% of the population consume too much sugar, not 1% not 2%, practically the entire population. thus the solution according to you is we shouldn't avoid it? List the top 10 cause of death. Is not consuming sugar 1 of them? No all 10 of them involve consuming too much. lol

Yes, 4 litres does seem like too much, but will everything be fine if I consume 3.9?

What is a reasonable amount of this product to consume?
How much sugar is contained within that amount?

What is the maximum amount of sugar for a healthy human to consume per day?

Aside from you being a foremost authority on Szechuan sauces. The rest of the forum may want to see how much sugar is in a product before purchasing.

Unless you are getting a royalty on all Szechuan sauces sold.

RFD people are so petty and annoying. This is a 4L jug for restaurants.

Can you look at the FDA or whatever site yourself? Or at least look at the label on the Amazon site:
Image

13 g of carbohydrates constitutes 4% of the recommended daily value. So, 13/0.04 = 325 g (or about so due to rounding) of carbohydrates is the recommended daily value. If you eat 30/0.04 = 750 mL of this sauce per day and nothing else with carbohydrates you should be fine according to FDA. The key words are "nothing else". But there will be a (big) problem with sodium intake. Due to high amount of sodium in this sauce you should not eat more than 30/0.23 = 130 mL of it per day and nothing else with sodium.

https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/ ... ch2020.pdf
"The Daily Value for total carbohydrate is 275 g per day. This is based on a 2,000 calorie daily diet — your Daily Value may be higher or lower depending on your calorie needs."

I guess due to rounding it calculates 325 g from the label. It's bad rounding because 13/275 = 4.74% which should be rounded to 5%. Somebody, sue Heinz :)

I guess I didn't see it as a joke and I'm tired of all the nutrition and fashion experts on RFD saying some incredibly asinine things.

Doing statistic is a big part of my job and I'm quite good with epidemiology.

I'm quite sure I've never seen sugar listed in top cause of death.

Obesity yes, sugar no.

Literally any excess energy from any of the four macronutrients will be stored as fat...
