In addition to stevia, some good natural sweeteners are honey, maple syrup, and blackstrap molasses. These natural sweeteners have a lower glycemic index than table sugar and thus are less likely to cause blood sugar spikes. They also have added health benefits. For example, maple syrup contains up to 54 different types of antioxidants, honey has antimicrobial properties that help you fight colds, and blackstrap molasses is high in vitamins and minerals. Agave nectar isn’t considered a good option because of its high fructose content.
Nearly every cell in the body can use glucose as energy, but only the liver cells are capable of breaking down fructose. A high intake of fructose has been associated with increases in obesity, diabetes, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, according to Harvard Health . Most fructose in the American diet comes from high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and processed foods, not fruit, so it provides little in the way of nutrition besides calories. HFCS is problematic because in the process used to make it, the glucose and fructose, which are naturally bound together, are separated. This causes the fructose to go directly to your liver, which leads to fatty liver, and in turn, diabetes. HCFS also contains other toxins from the chemical contaminants used during manufacturing.
We cannot avoid having sugar in our diet. The only way is to be smart about the type of sugar we take everyday.
Best is to select a natural form of sugar and take care not to exceed daily recommended amount. Unfortunately sugar is used in all processed and ready made food, so be wise to select those that use good types of sugar.
