Is sugar bad for your vocal chords?

Ad

Yes, sugar can harm to your vocal chords when you are trying to sing. It is recommended that you stay away from foods and drinks that contain sugar.

Sugar is food for bacteria. Bacteria reproduce rapidly in ideal conditions. Warm, moist conditions like your throat is ideal. Add a food source like sugar and a population explosion is very possible. Your body, of course, knows how to handle this situation. One of the body's responses is to release phlegm. The buildup of phlegm and mucus in your throat may prevent you from being able to sing clearly. In addition, your throat and vocal chord area may become mildly inflamed which you may not feel but will affect your vocal tone quality.

You can however use a sugar substitute like Stevia or Aspartame but they come with own set of health problems, however they will not damage your voice.
