The Top 8 Natural Sweeteners


We know that processed sugar is a no-no. It can lead to weight gain and diabetes. It speeds the aging process, suppresses immunity, causes tooth decay, can throw our hormones out of whack and leads to a whole host of other health problems. Still, try telling all that to your sweet tooth when the waiter rolls the dessert cart around. So, if you're looking to curb that sugar problem with healthy sugar alternatives, look no further than these healthy all-natural sweeteners.

1.    Coconut sugar: The coconut has been experiencing quite a renaissance lately: it's oil is no longer considered a "bad fat", coconut water is a hydrating electrolyte alternative to sports drinks, and now, a sugar derived from the coconut palm can give you all the sweet you need with a lot less sugar. Coconut sugar can be used 1:1 in place of regular sugar and is much lower on the Glycemic Index. Find it in powdered form, usually right next to sugar in your local health-minded market.
