¿Cuánto azúcar estás consumiendo sin saberlo? Esta cuenta de Instagram te lo recuerda


Hace ya tiempo que el azúcar ocupa muchos titulares cuando se habla de nutrición y de problemas de salud. Al menos en otros países, porque mientras en lugares como Reino Unido la regulación del consumo de refrescos azucarados ya está en el punto de mira de las autoridades, en España, por ahora, no se habla demasiado de los riesgos asociados al exceso de azúcar en la dieta.

No hablamos de las cucharadas de azúcar que le echas al café, sino de ese que se consume sin ser consciente de ello. De hecho, como ya hablamos en su momento, muchos alimentos con fama de ser saludables, en realidad están muy lejos de esa categoría precisamente por la cantidad de azúcar que contienen.

¿Y cómo hacer calar ese mensaje antes de que el azúcar se convierta -como ya alertan algunos nutricionistas desde hace tiempo- en la nueva epidemia? Los mensajes, campañas y discursos están muy bien pero, como suele decirse, una imagen vale más que mil palabras.

De eso se encarga una cuenta de Instagram decidida a alertar sobre el contenido de azúcar de algunos productos de una forma muy gráfica. Yogures aparentemente sanísimos, bebidas energéticas, pasteles y bollerías industrial, zumos que prometen ser muy naturales… Hay hueco para todos en la cuenta de @dealerdesucre, que usa unos simples azucarillos para explicar de forma muy sencilla la cantidad de azúcar que estamos ingiriendo tal vez sin ser conscientes de ello.




Y es que un yogur puede contener 3 azucarillos (15 gramos de azúcar), una bebida de esas que te da alas casi 7 azucarillos, un bote de tomate 2 azucarillos y medio -sí, el tomate también lleva azúcar, y mucho más del que imaginamos- y un zumo hasta 30 gramos de azúcar. Traducido a azucarillos, media docena.



¿Nos tomaríamos todos esos productos con la misma alegría si supiéramos la cantidad de azúcar que contienen? Mas allá de las presiones de la industria, en algunos lugares parecen cada vez más cercanas las medidas para controlar el tema, desde una especie de impuesto para el azúcar -similar al del tabaco o el del alcohol- hasta exigir un etiquetado más claro que incluso alerte sobre los riesgos del exceso de azúcar y su relación directa con la salud.



De momento, un repaso de vez en cuando a esta cuenta de Instagram seguro que ayuda a tener presente lo que estamos comiendo.
