For centuries, pure cane or beet sugar (sucrose) has been the most common form of sweetener in our foods and beverages. Avoiding sucrose or high fructose corn syrup entirely is a nearly impossible task these days. However, many people need to find alternatives to sugar, either for medical or dietary reasons. Pure sugar is high in carbohydrates, which can cause unwanted spikes in a person's blood glucose level and is stored as fat in the body. Fortunately, there are a number of sugar substitutes on the market today. Many are derived from natural sources and can be swapped out for sugar in recipes without sacrificing taste. These sugar substitutes also have the benefit of being much lower in calories than sugar, and they will not create unwanted glucose spikes in the bloodstream. Diabetics and dieters alike will benefit greatly from the introduction of these sugar substitutes into their daily routines.
