How is White Sugar harmful for us?
Studies have shown that Sugar is known to depress the immune system. More consumption of added sugar leads to obesity. High blood glucose levels can even lead to deteriorating blood vessels and heart disease. Added sugar is correlated with high triglycerides and lower HDL (“good”) cholesterol. Too much refined sugar creates a cycle of intense highs and lows, keeping our blood sugar, hormones and neurotransmitters out of balance.

Do these Laddoos have Trans-fat? How are Trans-fat harmful?
These Laddoo have Trans-fat but very negligible. Besan laddoo has 0.5 g/ 100gm and Moongdal Laddoo has 0.45g/100gm only. Each laddoo weigh 30gm so practically no trans-fat is present.
All fats are not bad. We need fat to provide energy and for the absorption of certain nutrients in the body. The worst type of dietary fat is the kind known as Trans-fat. It is a byproduct of a process called hydrogenation that is used to turn healthy oils into solids and to prevent them from becoming rancid. Trans fats have no known health benefits and that there is no safe level of consumption.
Eating foods rich in trans fats increases the amount of harmful LDL cholesterol in the bloodstream and reduces the amount of beneficial HDL cholesterol. Trans fats create inflammation, which is linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other chronic conditions. They contribute to insulin resistance, which increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
