Natural / Minimally Processed Sweeteners

Sweeteners

Natural sweeteners / Minimally processed sugar

Better sweetener choices

(but still in moderation)

 

         Dehydrated/Evaporated natural sugar cane juice

         Raw Honey – “Natural Antibiotic”

         Maple syrup

         Date sugar

         Blackstrap Molasses

         Malt sugar

 

 

NATURAL SOURCE SWEETENERS

 

         Stevia  (a non-nutritive sweetener (NNS))

         Luo Han Guo  (a non-nutritive sweetener (NNS))

         Xylitol (low glycemic sweetener)

 

 

 

      Even natural high carb sweeteners should be consumed sparingly – be “ball-park” aware of your intake of carbohydrate  grams to avoid blood sugar roller coaster rides and eventual INSULIN resistance.

 

(Figures in parentheses gives carbohydrate grams per teaspoon. Regular white sugar (99% sucrose)  has 5g carbohydrate/tsp; Fructose has 8g/tsp.)

 

         RAW (unfiltered) Honey (6g) - ~ 53 % fructose, but used in moderation in its raw form has many health benefits.

 

Raw Honey – “Natural Antibiotic”

                                                                  

         Grade B Maple Syrup (6g)

 

         Dextrose (glucose) (3.2 g) has an advantage over sucrose (50% glucose/50% fructose) by avoiding fructose and its detrimental effects on health

 

         Dehydrated (i.e. dried) Sugar Cane Juice -  Rapidura®(4g)  , Sucanat® (4g) (contraction of sugar cane natural) - retain the minerals and balance of sucrose, fructose and glucose in the whole sugar cane; impart brown color and flavor. However, being 5-10 times the cost compared to white sugar they are probably not worth the minimal extra nutrients.

 

         Evaporated Sugar Cane Juice – E.g. Muscovado Sugar (4g)  – retains only a few of the sugar cane’s minerals; not that much different to white sugar

 

         Date Sugar (2.5g)     

 

         Blackstrap Molasses (unsulfered)    (6g)     

 

         Cocoa (Dark Chocolate, unsweetened)   (6g)   

 For enlightenment: Regular hot chocolate cocoa with whole milk contains 30g of carbs!     

 

         Sugar alcohols (neither sugar or alcohols) -  E.g. Stevia  (0g), Xylitol (4g), glycerol, sorbitol, maltitol, mannitol, and erythritol are neither sugars nor alcohols. These popular sweeteners are not well absorbed from the  small intestine,  so provide fewer calories than sugar. Can cause some bloating, diarrhea and flatulence when consumed to excess.
