Like to use applesauce or natural fruits blended as the substitute.
If I'm baking and I want to cut the sugar, I use applesauce.
Agave nectar or stevia, honey are the only ones I feel safe to eat.
i could not and would absolutey not put an artificial sweetener in my body... i would rather take the full calories of granulated sugar than use anything like equal, nutrasweet, sweet n low, etc... i have learned to take my iced and hot tea without sugar... my coffee with cream, and then blended in a personal blender to take away the bitterness... in my smoothies i used local honey or dates if i want added sweetness... most of the time the fruit i add to a smoothie is enough... i am surprised that a site that promotes healthy living would offer/promote sugar substitutes as an option...

Isn't this a useless article today. No updates. No new info. Then why did it appear in the newsletter?
Waste of time when I saw it was written in 2013!!!!!
I use Xylitol crystals (at Sprouts) if I need something on top of anything. (like cinnamon sprouted raisin toast, I use coconut oil for 'butter'. REALLY helps me when I am craving those HUGE cinnamon rolls, like at fairs.I might do this 1 time a month) GREAT for healthy gums, too!
No sugar subs for me except in soft drinks. I don't like other sweetened drinks.
This was written 7 years ago as of my reading, maybe revisit this and update some of the information and add info re: the sugar alcohols ie erythrotol (sp?) That is the first substitute I will use. Don't want the cancer from the pink stuff, the headaches from the nutrasweet, and the aftertaste from the yellow stuff.
Thanks, good need-to-know information!
