Does it really matter what my spices are made of? My friend told me that I need to read the labels on my spices because sometimes that add a lot of sugar. Is it enough sugar to really cause health issues?

Yes, those seasonings really can add spice to our lives, filling our kitchens with tempting aromas and creating memories of people and places linked to special meals. But along with the flavor and memories, herbs and spices could add something less savory to your diet: potentially dangerous heavy metals.

Yes, consuming too much added sugar can raise blood pressure and increase chronic inflammation, both of which are pathological pathways to heart disease. Excess consumption of sugar, especially in sugary beverages, also contributes to weight gain by tricking your body into turning off its appetite-control system because liquid calories are not as satisfying as calories from solid foods. 

Above all, checking the ingredients that made up our spices are an important matter. So, we need to pay attention to it as well as choose carefully. I hope the tips for consumers help.
