Hidden Sugar in Dangerous Sushi.
Sushi does not seem to be sweet but the white short-grained rice contains a lot of starch that turns into sugar after digestion. Besides, some added ingredients such as hot sauce or rice vinegar also contain sugar. That’s why this dish provokes a surge of blood sugar levels. Such an influence causes high blood pressure, cholesterol plaques and obesity that can lead to much more serious health problems, such as diabetes and stroke.
