When you eat sugar, your glucose levels soar which gives you a short burst of energy before they come crashing back down. This typically causes you to eat more sugar to bring your levels back up again. The constant ‘yoyo’ effect of indulging in a sugar cycle can cause inflammation in the body and trigger an immune system response. If left to go on for years, it can lead to a number of diseases and chronic health conditions.
Enter the natural sugar alternative!
Natural sweeteners are a great alternative to artificial sweeteners that have been made using synthetic ingredients. Most natural sweeteners are derived from plants and are naturally sweet with no or very few calories, making them a much healthier option all round. They are also much sweeter than regular sugars, so you don’t need as much of them.
It’s a widely-accepted fact these days that refined sugar, particularly white and brown sugar, can have some seriously negative effects on your long-term health. Studies suggest that excessive and extensive use of artificial sweeteners can contribute to a number of health conditions, including obesity, heart disease and tooth decay.
Luckily, natural sweeteners are becoming an increasingly popular alternative. These beauties have been extracted from natural sources with less processing and contain no artificial chemicals, so they are much better for you and can even offer a range of health benefits.
One of the best things about natural sweeteners is that they don’t spike blood sugar levels like artificial sweeteners do which makes them a better choice for people with diabetes.
Check out some of the benefits of swapping out the refined sugar for a healthier alternative:
It’s important to remember, however, that even natural sweeteners are still sugar so it’s always best to limit your intake and consume it in moderation!
GoodnessMe offer a generous selection of natural sweeteners to indulge your sweet tooth without the sugar crash. Check out this list of natural sweeteners available online now at GoodnessMe by leading health brands:
You can use natural sweeteners in the same ways that you would normally use artificial ones. There are both wet and dry natural sweeteners – the one you use will depend on what you are making. Keep in mind that they are much sweeter than artificial ones so you may need to adjust your measurements and taste as you go.
A good tip is to swap out liquid sweeteners for liquid, granular for granular and powder for powder. There’s plenty of sneaky ways to make the swap, from adding stevia to your hot chocolate, tea and coffee instead of sugar and making a creamy cake frosting using Monkfruit Sweetener Icing Powder by Lakanto instead of icing sugar.
We’ve put together some decadent and delicious refined sugar-free recipe ideas to get the inspiration flowing and the tastebuds watering:
