White sugar or regular sugar or just sugar, whatever you may call it, but it is a devil soaked into the sweetness that can cause some serious damage to our bodies. I have been suffering from a sweet tooth since forever and I know that most of you might as well. And, if you are looking for an alternative to sugar, then you are at the right place.
Many researchers have called sugar, one of the worst ingredients, you can have in your diet. Most of the people around the globe, including myself, tend to eat sugar a lot without even realising the damage it can cause to our bodies. Large intake of sugar is directly linked to diseases, including diabetes and also contributes to weight gain. Another thing that most of us are unaware of is that sugar is an addictive ingredient. It helps in releasing dopamine in our body, which is often the case with addictive drugs. And, this often leads to overconsumption of sugar.
Now, the question is what can you do? Well, here are some of the alternatives that I came across and they are healthier than sugar.
This is one of the well-known natural replacements of sugar. Erythritol contains just six per cent of sugar calories per gram. One of the best things is that it tastes exactly like sugar, so you will not face difficulties in switching. It also doesn’t contribute to raising blood sugar, insulin, cholesterol or triglyceride levels.
# Coconut Sugar
I don’t know if you heard about it or not, but this is something that I tried recently. As the name suggests, it comes from the sap of the coconut palm. It is higher in calories as compared to Erythritol. But, it can be used as an alternative to white sugar.
Stevia is one of the well-known sugar alternatives that you can opt for. It is considered the safest natural alternative to sugar that comes with some health benefits. It can help in lowering the blood pressure levels. You can get Stevia in either liquid or powder form as you desire.
