Sugar Substitutes

Sugar Substitutes

Is there a healthy sugar?

Yes, and you've come to the right place! Let's be honest, these days we're all on a mission to cut down our Sugar intake and burn off those extra calories. Here at Natures Healthbox however, we can confidently say with a big smile on our Face that the quantity and quality of sugar substitutes has increased rapidly over the past few years. With this in mind, you can literally take your pick from our extensive selection below.

How many calories are in fake sugar?

Sugar is a carbohydrate, meaning it contains four calories per gram of carbohydrates. A teaspoon of sugar contains around sixteen calories, being four grams. Sugar substitutes normally contain either zero calories or pretty close to zero, unless you opt for a syrup. Most importantly, most sugar substitutes won't raise your insulin levels.

What is the most natural tasting sugar substitute?

Many consider a stevia product, like NKD Living Erythritol and Stevia - 1:1 Sugar Alternative 750g or Sukrin Gold Stevia Sweetener Brown Sugar Alternative 500g to be the most natural tasting sugar substitute.

What sweetener does not raise blood sugar?

Again, calorie-free stevia sweeteners don't tend to raise blood sugar levels.

What is the healthiest sweetener for baking?

A Raw Honey product or Coconut sugar, such as Biona Organic Coconut Palm Sugar 500g, could be the healthiest option for your home-baked goods.
