Before we analyze the amount of calories in baklava, we will first see what it is made of. Baklava is made of Phyllo dough, nuts and sweetening agents, and all these ingredients have carbohydrates, sugars and proteins. Baklava doesn’t contain so much fat, but it has large amounts of sugar. Carbohydrates and sugars are dominant in the baklava recipe.
so baklava which is eaten a lot in countries such as Turkey, Greece etc since centuries one would expect due to hype about sugar obesity, diabetes is much more prevalent there since centuries
hmmm…. no exceptional increase… weird. Must be something wrong with the sugar is bad theory.
