The most popular question when come to diet low-carb is what sweetener can replace sugar?…Most people on low-carb find that once they get used to the diet, the cravings for sugar go away. Many even claim not to use any sweeteners at all. However, you may find it hard to give up sweets, especially at the beginning. I’ve been researching for natural low-carb sweeteners as well as other healthy alternatives to sugar. As always, there are many sweeteners you should avoid.


for your information sugar is a food to the cancer…scary right?


and then come question like “why do you use artificial sweeteners?and can i use coconut sugar or sugar in the raw instead?


first off, nothing that i recommended is artificial. Erythritol is found in many fruits and vegetables and in fermented foods, and just as you can find sugarcane fields and honey in nature, you can find the stevia herb and grow it in a pot in your own home if you want to. Both are as natural as honey or maple syrup, yet they can be consumed without the negatives effects of other common natural sweeteners because they are low on the glycemic index; that is they have less effect on blood sugar.


The truth is that commonly used natural sweeteners such as honey, maple syrup, and agave all increase blood sugar. When blood sugar rises, it not only causes inflamation but also will take you out of ketosis, which is why i do not allow those sweeteners and prefer natural sweeteners that don’t raise blood sugar.


If we compared it to the present day and the first time our mother used to take sugary foods as daily energy but they can stay lean and healthy because they need to do the hard work every day. Wake up early morning and having breakfast like a king, a bowl of rice with teh tarik then after that hold a hoe to go to gardening, tapping, paddy, farming and others. So what is the issue with having sugar now and why are we seeing such a rice in metabolic syndrome not only in adult but in kids, too?


The things is, now day there no more hard work like that. It starts with breakfast. I grew up on rice and teh o because i’m kelantanise, which is what kelantanise eat for breakfast today. Did you know that one bowl of a steamed white rice contained 13-15 teaspoons of sugar? Then for snack, we grab a granola bar, which has the same sugar content as a candy bar! lunch almost always included sugary thing that did’t exist in the past like jelly pudding or juice.

According to this articles Malaysian are the 8th largest sugar consumers in the world!! so scary.

Since even natural sweeteners like sugarcane, honey, agave and maple syrup all raise blood sugar levels, i recommended sticking to others natural sweeteners that are more low-carb ketogenic diet.


LOW-CARB KETOGENIC NATURAL SWEETENERS

Million thanks for martina for this research and really helpful me. Following is an overview of healthy sweeteners you could use provided your net carbs limit allows for it. People with very low net carbs limit should avoid using anything other than “zero-carb” sweeteners, like Stevia, Monk fruit sweetener or Erythritol.
