Not all sweeteners are created equal. Below is a list of sweeteners to use in place of white refined sugar (and turbinado sugar). Keep in mind some are better than others.
Natural, Unrefined/Raw Sweeteners
(USE SPARINGLY. These still spike blood sugar.)
Healthy Sugar Substitutes
(Derived from plants. Won’t spike blood sugar.)
(Touted as low-glycemic. Use with CAUTION.)
