Is there a healthier substitute to sugar?

    Lots! First, you have to be clear that popular use of “sugar” generally refers to refined sugar, as opposed to the sugars found naturally in fruits and other foods. Generally speaking, the less refined a food is, the healthier; raw cane juice is probably a lot better for you than granulated white sugar.

    Depending on what you’re doing with it, some of the alternatives to sugar are honey, stevia, fructose, and blue agave syrup. There are a lot of options around as people become more aware of issues associated with consumption of a lot of refined sugar.

    It’s important to note that while the above may be better for you than refined sugar, moderation is still key to staying healthy.

    For tons of (somewhat disputed) information on the downfalls of refined sugar, see William Dufty’s book Sugar Blues.
