10 Alternatives to Refined Sugar

by Skinny Ms.

10 Alternatives to Refined Sugar (1)

Sometimes life just requires a little something sweet. So with that in mind, here are 10 all natural, unrefined sweeteners you can feel better about adding to your favorite desserts. Refined sugar has no nutritional value.  Most all processed foods have loads of added refined sugar. On average, studies have shown that the average American eats 3 pounds of refined sugar per week, via processed foods.

At Skinny Ms., we use only unrefined sweeteners.  You will find that most of our baked goods contain either honey, sucanat or coconut palm sugar.  If you live in a location where these sweeteners are not readily available,  you can always shop here.

Maple syrup
Brown Rice Syrup

Dates or Date sugar
Coconut Palm Sugar 
(our favorite because of its low glycemic index)
Turbinado Sugar
Pureed bananas (great in baking!)
Sorghum Syrup
Unsulphured Molasses

If you’re looking for a dessert, be sure to stop by our dessert category!

Why choose natural sugars when the body processes sugar as sugar no matter what type it is?  Simply put, with natural sugars you are not only avoiding chemical processes but also getting at least some amount of nutrition with each bite. Can’t say that for the white sugar which has no nutritional value!
