Every day people consume pounds and pounds of sugar, however there are substitutes that can sweeten just as good as sugar. These substitutes sometimes have a bad rap to them and people are often afraid to use them, so the question is what sugar packet is right for you?
There is the pink, the blue, the brown and so on but each one of these sweeteners has different ingredients. People always need to make sure they know exactly what the ingredients are before anything is consumed read the fine print and then there will not be any surprises. Be sure to do some research before hand and before consuming anything unhealthy for your body type.
Each one of these sweeteners have side effects that will vary from person to person and for some people the sweetener will be the only type that will be recommended for them depending on their health. For example, people with diabetes will most likely have to always use a sugar substitute.
One ingredient that causes some concern is the aspartame that is included in some of the sweetener brands. There is some concern that this component in the sweetener is rumored to start cancer. Another concern with Estiva or trivia according to the FDA, is that there has shown to be infertility in lab rats as well as renal disease. However, this is only if the product is used in large amounts but because all of these substitutes are quite new it is hard to tell the long-term effect of them.
Why not lean towards honey or sugar, yep that’s right is used in small amounts sugar can be harmless, so try to stay away from those extra sweet sodas or candy. Figure out some other ways to sweeten up your coffee or teas in the mornings by using extracts or mint leaves. If told by a medical professional that it is ok to use these products be sure to use in moderation. Everything today should be used in moderation because there are so many additives in foods and beverage. Be sure to always check with your medical professional to confirm that it will work with your body type.
Again, it is very imperative that someone sticks to the all-natural diets including vegetables, fruits and natural sweeteners instead of the processed foods and sweeter so that there are less additives added to your diet.
