Beautiful harvest weather yielding some surprising results

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Jeff Duling, Putnam CountyThis is probably one of the best autumns we have had in a long time. There has been no damage to the ground from combines or grain carts. I think Mother Nature must have felt sorry for what she did to us in June and July and now she is helping us out. It wouldn’t be any fun combining 150-bushel corn and mudding it out.Corn is all over the board. In eastern Putnam County, Henry and Hancock we are hearing about and seeing some 200-plus bushel yields, but you still have the water damage in places. We have just over 600 acres of corn to go and by the end of the week we could be getting close to done. We are in Putnam County now and are working to the west. When we get to Van Wert County it could get a little uglier.My worst field of beans was in Van Wert and it was 25 bushels an acre. The population was way down and there were drowned out spots. Otherwise, we have been pleasantly surprised with beans. There have been some 50- and 60-bushel beans and we are happy with that. Beans are pretty well done. All we have left are a couple of fields that were planted in July. They are just getting a tinge of yellow to them.Wheat planting is pretty well wrapped up. The wheat could use a rain. It is dry out there and a shower wouldn’t hurt around here. There is wheat and cover crop seed around here laying dry.Tillage is all done. We did some strip-till yesterday and that was our last field. We saw some compaction in conventionally tilled fields and we went in and addressed that. In our no-till, it seems like Mother Nature is helping the soil crack open. We just went in and put some cover crop on top and went over it with an Excelerator and just tickled it in. Now we are going to inject manure on 30-inch centers and try to plant on that next spring. We have been doing that for a couple of years and it has worked really well. Next week we’ll start ditching if the weather holds up.For the rest of this week’s reports, click here.last_img read more

Sweeteners- sugars

first_imgDefinitionThe term sugar is used to describe a wide range of compounds that vary in sweetness. Common sugars include:GlucoseFructoseGalactoseSucrose (common table sugar)Lactose (milk sugar)Maltose (product of starch digestion)Sugars are found naturally in milk products (lactose) and fruits (fructose). Most of the sugar in the American diet is from added sugarsin food products.FunctionSweeteners do the following things:Provide sweet flavor when added to food.Maintain freshness and food quality.Act as a preservative in jams and jellies.Enhance flavor in processed meats.Provide fermentation for breads and pickles.Add bulk to ice cream and body to carbonated sodas.Foods containing natural sugars (such as fruit) also include vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Many foods with added sugars often add calories without nutrients. These foods and drinks are often called “empty” calories.Most people know that there is a lot of added sugar in soda. However, popular “vitamin-type” waters, sports drinks, coffee drinks, and energy drinks also contain a lot of added sugar.Food SourcesSome sweeteners are made by processing sugar compounds. Others occur naturally.Sucrose (table sugar):Sucrose is made from a low-sugar beet juice or sugar cane. It is made up of about half glucose and half fructose. Sucrose includes raw sugar, granulated sugar, brown sugar, confectioners sugar, and turbinado sugar.Raw sugar is granulated, solid, or coarse. It is brown in color. Raw sugar is the solid part left when the liquid from the juice of the sugar cane evaporates.Brown sugar is made from sugar crystals that come from molasses syrup.Confectioners sugar (also known as powdered sugar) is finely ground sucrose.Turbinado sugar is unrefined sugar made from sugar cane juice.Other commonly used sugars:advertisementFructose (fruit sugar) is the naturally occurring sugar in all fruits. It is also called levulose, or fruit sugar.Honey is a combination of fructose, glucose, and water. It is produced by bees.High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and corn syrup are made from corn. Sugar and HFCS have almost the same level of sweetness. HFCS is often used in soft drinks, baked goods, and some canned products. There is a lot of scientific debate about the role of HFCS increasing risk of type 2 diabetes as well as contributing to escalating rates of obesity.Sugar alcohols:Sugar alcohols include mannitol, sorbitol, and xylitol. These sweeteners are used as an ingredient in many food products that are labeled “sugar-free”, “diabetic”, or “low carb”. These sweeteners are absorbed by the body at a much slower rate than sugar. They also have about half the calories of sugar. They should not be confused with sugar substitutes that are calorie free. Sugar alcohol cause stomach cramps and diarrhea in some people.Erythritol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol found in fruit and fermented foods. It is 60 to 70% as sweet as table sugar, but has fewer calories. Also, it does not result in as much of a rise in blood sugar after meals or cause tooth decay. Unlike other sugar alcohols, it does not cause stomach upset.Other types of natural sugars:Dextrose is glucose combined with water.Invert sugar is used in a liquid form to help keep candies and baked items sweet.Agave nectar is a highly processed type of sugar from the Agave tequiliana (tequila) plant. Agave nectar is about 1 1/2 times sweeter than regular sugar. It has about 60 calories per tablespoon, compared to 40 calories for the same amount of table sugar. Agave nectar is not healthier than honey, sugar, HFCS, or any other type of sweetener.Other types of natural sugars:Glucose is found in fruits in small amounts. It is also a syrup made from corn starch.Lactose (milk sugar) is the carbohydrate that is in milk. It is made up of glucose and galactose.Maltose (malt sugar) is produced during fermentation. It is found in beer and breads.Maple sugar comes from the sap of maple trees. It is made up of sucrose, fructose, and glucose.Molasses is taken from the residue of sugar cane processing.Side EffectsSugar provides calories and no other nutrients. Sugar and other sweeteners with calories can lead to tooth decay.Large amounts of sugar-containing foods lead to obesity in children and adults. Obese people are at much higher risk for type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and high blood pressure.Sugar alcohols such as sorbitol, mannitol, and xylitol may cause stomach cramps and diarrhea when eaten in large amounts.RecommendationsSugar is on the U.S. Food and Drug Administrations (FDA) list of safe foods. It contains 16 calories per teaspoon and can be used in moderation.advertisementThe American Heart Association (AHA) recommends limiting the amount of added sugars in your diet. The recommendation extends to all types of added sugars.Women should get no more than 100 calories per day from sugar (about 6 teaspoons of sugar).Men should get no more than 150 calories per day from sugar (about 9 teaspoons of sugar).The Dietary Guidelines for Americans also recommends limiting added sugars. Some ways to reduce your intake of added sugars include:Drink water instead of regular soda, “vitamin-type” water, sports drinks, coffee drinks, and energy drinks.Eat less candy and sweet desserts such as ice cream, cookies, and cakes.The American Diabetes Association nutrition guidelines state that you do not need to avoid all sugar and foods with sugar if you have diabetes. You can eat limited amounts of these foods in place of other carbohydrates.If you have diabetes:Sugars affect blood glucose control the same as other carbohydrates when eaten at meals or snacks. It is still a good idea to limit foods and drinks with sugar, and to check your blood sugar levels carefully.Foods that contain sugar alcohols may have fewer calories, but be sure to read the labels for the carbohydrate content of these foods. Also, check your blood sugar levels.ReferencesJohnson RJ, Appel LJ, Brands M, Howard BV, Lefevre M, Lustig RH, et al.
