Articles vedette / ᓄᐃᑎᑕᐅᔪᑦ ᑕᑯᔭᒃᓭᑦ / Feature articles I can still take foods with sugar but I limit my sugar intake, so I look at the amount of sugar in the nutrition panel. Our body, and especially our brain, require sugar in order to function. I choose to eat foods like vegetables and fruits, fresh or frozen. It was a challenge to change my eating habits. Fortunately, Inuit Nunangat, our homeland, is rich with wonderful foods such as seal meat, fish and seafood, as well as the fruits from the tundra like crowberries, cloudberries and blueberries. That is what we need to bring back so that our future generations will be healthy. The next step is to have people with knowledge in every community. We need to have dedicated, trained individuals to serve their community through sharing information and helping. When we understand, we can take action and this improves lives. Anyone can make a fresh start too. I consider myself as an example of this since I can do more things today than before, though I am older. I want to be well, so that is why I am trying my best!

Il en existe aussi d’autres types comme le glucose-fructose, le fructose, le lactose, le miel, la mélasse, et le sirop de maïs. La quantité de sucre qui figure dans le tableau de la valeur nutritive tient compte de ces autres types de sucre. On retrouve environ 4 grammes de sucre dans une cuillère à thé. Chaque cuillère à thé de sucre contient environ 16 calories. Une grande consommation de sucre peut entraîner une consommation calorique excessive qui constitue un facteur contributif de l’embonpoint et de l’obésité. Or, puisqu’elle augmente le risque d’importantes maladies chroniques telles que les maladies cardiovasculaires, le diabète de type 2 et le cancer, l’obésité suscite aujourd’hui une préoccupation de santé publique au Canada. Une alimentation riche en sucre ajouté risque aussi de se révéler faible en vitamines et en minéraux essentiels dont le corps a besoin. Mais attention, il n’y a aucun risque de surdose de sucre naturel des petits fruits et des fruits. ᒪᒪᕐᓴᐅᑎᒃ/ᐱᑕᒃᓴᖅ ᓄᓇᔭᕕᓂᐅᑦᓱᓂ ᒪᒪᕐᓴᐅᑎᖕᖑᓕᐊᒍᓲᒍᕗᖅ, ᖃᑯᕐᓯᓕᑎᕐᓯᒪᑦᓱᓂ, ᖃᑯᕐᓯᓕᑎᓯᒪᒐᓂᓘᓐᓃᑦ, ᑲᔫᑦᓱᓂ ᐃᒐᒍᑕᐅᓲᖅ. ᐊᔾᔨᒌᖕᖏᑑᑎᓂᒃ ᑌᔭᐅᒍᓯᖃᕐᒥᔪᖅ ᓴᓇᒻᒪᖓ ᒪᓕᑦᓱᒍ, ᑯᓗᑰᔅ-ᕗᔭᒃᑑᔅ, ᕗᔭᒃᑑᔅ, ᓛᒃᑑᔅ, ᐃᒍᑦᓭᑦ ᐊᓇᖓ, ᒪᓛᓯᓯ ᐊᒻᒪ ᑯᐊᔾᓐ ᐃᒪᖓ. ᒪᒪᕐᓴᐅᑎᐅᑉ ᐅᓄᕐᓂᖓ ᑕᑯᔭᐅᒍᓐᓇᓲᓐ ᐅᐊᕈᑎᒋᔭᐅᒍᓂ ᓂᕿᓂ ᓂᐅᕙᑦᓴᓂ ᐅᐊᕈᑎᖏᑦᑕ ᓇᓗᓀᕐᑐᒍᑎᖏᓐᓂ, ᑖᒃᑯᐊᓗ ᐊᔾᔨᒌᖕᖏᑑᑏᑦ ᑕᑯᑦᓴᐅᒋᐊᖃᓲᒍᕗᑦ. ᐊᑕᐅᓯᖅ ᖃᓗᕋᐅᑎᐊᐱᒃ ᒪᒪᕐᓴᐅᑎᓕᒃ ᓯᑕᒪᓂᒃ 4ᓂᒃ ᐅᖁᒣᓐᓂᐊᐱᓕᒻᒥᒃ ᑯ ᔮ ᒻ - ᓂ ᒃ . ᐊ ᑐ ᓂ ᓗ ᖃ ᓗ ᕆᐊ ᑎ ᐊ ᐲᑦ ᒪᒪᕐᓴᐅᑎᓖᑦ 16ᓂᒃ ᐄᓯᕐᖑᓇᐅᑎᖃᕐᓱᑎᒃ, ᑖ ᒃ ᑯ ᐊ ᓗ ᐅ ᖁ ᒣ ᓕ ᓗ ᐊ ᕈ ᓐ ᓇ ᐅ ᑎ ᖃᕐ ᐳ ᑦ ᐅᕝᕙᓘᓐᓃᑦ ᖁᐃᓂᓗᐊᕈᓐᓇᐅᑎᑕᖃᕐᓱᑎᒃ. ᖁᐃᓂᔫᓗᐊᕐᑐᖃᕈᓂ ᐋᓐᓂᐊᑖᑐᐃᓐᓇᕆᐊᖃᕐᐳᖅ ᐃᓄᒃ ᐃᓅᓯᓕᒫᒥ ᓱᕐᕃᓲᓂᒃ, ᐆᑦᑑᑎᒋᑦᓱᒍ ᐆᒪᑎᕐᓗᓂᖅ, ᒪᕐᒪᓱᐊᑎᖃᓗᐊᕐᓂᓘᓐᓃᑦ, ᐅᕝᕙᓗᓃᑦ ᑳᓐᓴᒥᒃ. ᑕᒪᓐᓇ ᖁᐃᓂᔫᓗᐊᕐᓂᖅ ᑲᓇᑕᒥ ᓇᐅᓕᒫᓂᒃ ᖃᓄᐃᖕᖏᓯᐊᕐᓂᖏᓐᓂᒃ ᓱ ᕐ ᕃ ᓯ ᒪ ᓪ ᓚ ᕆ ᒐ ᔭ ᕐ ᓂ ᖓ ᐃ ᓱ ᒫ ᓘ ᑕ ᐅ ᓂ ᕐ ᐸ ᐅ ᖃ ᑕ ᐅ ᕗ ᖅ ᖃ ᓄ ᐃᖕ ᖏ ᓯ ᐊ ᕐ ᓂ ᓕ ᕆ ᔨ ᓄᑦ . ᖃ ᐅ ᑕ ᒫᑦ ᓂᕆᔭᐅᔪᑦ ᒪᒪᕐᓴᐅᑎᒥᒃ ᐅᐊᕈᑦᓯᓯᒪᑐᐊᕋᒥᒃ ᓂᕿᑦᓯᐊᕓᑦ ᐅᐊᕈᑎᑦᓴᔭᖏᑦ ᑎᒥᐅᑉ ᓄᑭᖃᑦᓯᐊᕈᑎᖏᑦ ᖃᓄᐃᖕᖏᓯᐊᕈᑎᖏᑦ ᐱᑕᑭᓐᓂᓴᐅᖕᖏᓂᐅᔭᖕᖏᓚᑦ. ᖃᐅᔨᒪᑦᓯᐊᕆᑦ ᐱ ᕈ ᕐ ᑐ ᔦ ᑦ ᐸ ᐅ ᕐ ᙰ ᑦ ᐸ ᐅ ᕐ ᖓ ᐅ ᔭ ᓕ ᒫᑦ ᐱᔭᐅᒐᓗᐊᕋᒥᒃ ᐃᓱᒫᓗᓐᓇᒐᓛᖕᖏᑐᑦ. Sugar is refined, white, or unrefined, brown sugar used in cooking. It also exists in other forms such as glucose-fructose, fructose, lactose, honey, molasses and corn syrup. The quantity of sugars found in the nutritional facts table takes these other sugars into account. We find approximately 4 grams of sugar in a teaspoon-full. Each teaspoon contains approximately 16 calories. Heavy consumption of sugars can entail an excessive intake of calories, which is a contributing factor to being overweight or obese. Since obesity increases the risk of important chronic diseases such as cardiovascular illnesses, type 2 diabetes and cancer, it has now become one of Canada’s major public health concerns. A diet high in added sugars is also likely to be low in essential vitamins and minerals that the body needs. But remember, there is no risk of taking in too much natural sugar from berries and fruits. erratum: Dans la dernière parution de Kanguq, les tableaux de la valeur nutritive en fran
