We all love sugar or sweets. It’s practically written in our caveman genes. Sugar is highly addictive. It is ranked way more addictive than some of the most addictive drugs out there. No wonder it is the direct culprit with growing cases of obesity & the diabetic epidemic. Here are some examples of natural sweeteners. Sweeteners such as isomalt, xylitol, and maltitol are called sugar alcohol. They provide fewer calories than regular sugar because they are converted to glucose more slowly. Stevia is made from the leaves of the stevia plant. It has no calories and provides about 100 to 300 times more sweetness than table sugar. Monk fruit extract is another popular natural sugar alternative. It made from monk fruits that have been used for centuries in Eastern medicine. It contains no calorie and provides around 150–200 times sweeter than table sugar. Coconut sugar is made from coconut palm sap. With a now growing variety of sweeteners on the market, which one should you choose from.
