Cornflakes

You might have enjoyed milk with cereals for breakfast when you were a kid but keeping this morning habit as an adult might not bring you the same joy. That’s because similar to milk, cornflakes can make your fine lines more noticeable, contributing to the aging process in more ways than one.

Firstly, cornflakes have a glycemic index of 81, which means they are a very high-glycemic food, causing a rapid spike in blood sugar and insulin levels. Secondly, high blood sugar accelerates the aging process by contributing to the formation of collagen-damaging advanced glycation end products (AGEs). In a 2013 study published in the journal Age, researchers analyzed how people perceive other people’s age, based on photos and glucose readings of participants. The conclusion was that the “perceived age increased 0.40 years … per 1 mmol/L increase in glucose level in non-diabetic subjects.”
