JustinEngineer added a topic in Diet & holistic healthTypes of Sugars/Sweeteners Proven to Cause AcneHello everyone,
Here are three sweeteners that cause acne: Xanthan Gum (the worst of all), High Fructose Corn Syrup, and Corn Syrup (the lesser of the three).
I have carried out experiments with these ingredients and I can turn on and off the acne on my face by either eating or not eating foods that have any of these three ingredients.
Xanthan gum will cause large, red zits within two days.
High fructose corn syrup is slower to cause acne than xanthan gum and typically only causes whiteheads to form. However, daily intake over a long period of time will initiate red zits.
Corn syrup is the same as high fructose corn syrup, except that I have to eat more plain corn syrup to get the same effect.
Cain sugar has never caused acne for me.
Clearly, this does not apply to everyon. I strongly suggest completely eliminating these from yur diet for one month and watch what happens. It works wonders for me and it results in a heathier diet!
Summary: do not eat anything with Xanthan gum. Sparingly eat things with High Fructose Corn Syrup and the same for plain Corn Syrup. Cain Sugar is okay.
To give you my credentials: I have two engineering degrees.
