Sugars
« on: January 12, 2013, 04:07:59 PM »
Are all sugars the same or are some healthier than others?  For example, is honey or agave nectar better than table sugar?

Hi, Siltz! :)

Sugar is sugar is sugar!... They all rapidly metabolize into glucose (blood sugar).
And as you know, elevated blood glucose that is not burned right away, will make body FAT.

The only real difference between agave nectar and table sugar is their source.
The end result of consuming them is the same.

I suggest you use FTS Zero Sweetener (sucralose) to sweeten your food and beverages.
It is made from cane sugar, but does not have any carbs or the side effects of sugar alcohol based sweeteners (i.e. possible digestive distress).
