Which sweetener do you think wins when it comes to good nutrition: Agave or honey? Or should we go for stevia, the other natural sweetener that’s big on health foodies’ lists? What about xylitol and other sugar alcohols? Then there’s blackstrap molasses, which contains the same antioxidants found in nuts and berries (although you’d have to eat 32 1/2 teaspoons of the stuff to get as many as in one serving of nuts or berries). Are artificial sweeteners taboo for healthy eating?
It’s a confusing world out there, but we try to clear things up a bit in our latest FitBriefing “Natural vs. Artificial Sweeteners: What’s Best for Healthy Weight Loss.”
Hint about one of our conclusions: How do you think blackstrap molasses would taste in your coffee?
