Introduction to Carbohydrates and Physical Activity
Welcome to iLab 2.
The Week 2 iLab will challenge you, as it has to do with sweeteners and obesity. Current research has shown that there may be a relationship between the consumption of sweeteners and the rise in obesity, so this will be an opportunity to examine the facts and develop an opinion.
Please select one of the following sweeteners:
- Sugar (sucrose)
- High Fructose Corn Syrup
- Ace K
- Another one that you can find on your own
