Sugar Substitutes

If you are like me , you prefer sweet things over a bag of salty chips. However, there are safer alternatives to ingesting the poisonous toxic dangerous white crystal called sugar.
  • Agave 
  • Yacon syrup
  • maple syrup 
  • Raw Honey 
  • Stevia
  • Dates
  • I just heard that Xylitol is a great sugar substitute.
I don't believe you have to be a vegetarian to convert .

According to Wikipedia the three primary compounds used as sugar substitutes in the United States are saccharin (Sweet'N Low), aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet) and sucralose (Splenda, Altern).
These artificial/chemical substitutes are just as bad as the regular refined sugar. Here are the sad facts :
- Sucralose, the main ingredient in Splenda, is sugar bonded with chlorine - you know, the stuff that's in bleach!
- Saccharin, a.k.a. Sweet 'n Low, is made from coal tar !
- Aspartame, is the worst and when ingested, it converts to formaldehyde, which is the chemical used for embalming corpses.

But if aspartame wasn't bad enough, NutraSweet "improved" the aspartame formula, making Neotame the newest dangerous sweetener on the market.

If you are interested and you have the time you can listen to this video about the dangers of sugar. It's over an hour long

Fact : Refined sugar is lethal for human consumption because it has been depleted of its life forces, vitamins and minerals, rendering it “empty”.
Refined Sugar - The Sweetest poison of All..

Say NO to Sugar .

Make the Switch .

This has been another edition of Alphabe Thursday . This week our focus is on the letter 'S'. 


  1. Agave nectar is quite good! I use this as well as stevia. The taste of stevia doesn't bother me too much and I even use it in coffee and tea.

  2. Hi Mary! :D I use all of them as well(the safer alternatives)but usually when I want to sweeten my green smoothie or herbal tea I use SugarTwin liquid sweetener .
    I must admit I don't like the taste of stevia or agave .

  3. I love maple syrup but hardly ever buy it!

    I think I'm right in saying that aspartame is a form of arsenic?? Delightful stuff!

  4. when i do use a sweetner
    it has to be sugar...
    i can't take the taste
    of those pink/yellow packs.
    stopping by via alphabe-thursday!

  5. you have done your homework.
    perfect presentation of sugar substitute.


  6. I use both agave and xylitol.
