The truth be­hind those sugar crav­ings

Shape (Singapore) - - Eat Right -

Hun­gry for a muf­fin ev­ery time you drink cof­fee? There’s a sci­en­tific ex­pla­na­tion for that. A Cor­nell Univer­sity study found that peo­ple who drank caf­feinated cof­fee per­ceived their brew to be less sweet, com­pared to those who had de­caf with the same sugar level. Ac­cord­ing to study au­thor Robin Dando, an as­sis­tant pro­fes­sor of food sci­ence, caf­feinated cof­fee re­duces your abil­ity to taste sweet­ness, making you want more. Now that you know, go easy on the sug­ary stuff. And that cup of joe. The Health Pro­mo­tion Board rec­om­mends no more than four cups of cof­fee or tea a day.
