30 Sugar Substitutes For Any And Every Possible Situation

Greatist excerpt

The dreaded sweet tooth strikes again. Most of us know sugar isn’t the healthiest food item, but the risks go way beyond a sugar crash or a cavity [1]. And artificial sweeteners can sometimes add even more calories to a meal. Instead of going cold (and sugarless) turkey, try some of these healthier sugar substitutions that’ll still satisfy our stomachs— and potentially make us sweeter, too.
[hear are the first three]
1. Agave Nectar History lesson time: The Aztecs used agave thousands of years ago and praised this syrup as a gift from gods. A derivative of the same plant as tequila (cheers!), this golden sweetener tastes similar to honey and is perfect in hot or iced tea. But be sure to use in moderation — agave's high fructose content can sometimes cross it in to the dangerfood zone!
2. Maple Syrup The benefits of maple syrup are aplenty: It comes directly from a plant’s sap and contains over 50 antioxidants. Make sure to grab the real stuff (sorry, Aunt Jemima) and spread it over waffles or use it in homemade granola.
3. Honey Thanks to bees, this scrumptious stuff packs an antioxidant punch. Enjoy some in hot tea to help soothe a scratchy throat, or get creative and add a spoonful to homemade salad dressing.
