43 grams of sugar in Skittles!

By Win T

Okay, so  there was a lady named Kristin from the University of Buffalo. She is studying dietetics and nutrition and made me see a type of food differently. Last week she came to my job at MAP and talked to us about sugar. She explained where sugar comes from, and how it is processed.

It amazed me how much sugar is in a pack of skittles. It made me love science even more than I already do.

The activity was informative and I really enjoyed it. It showed me the negative and positive effects of an everyday food item. A positive effect of sugar is that is provides us energy for our body. But, a negative effect is that too much can cause diabetes.
