It’s no secret that sugar is hard to avoid — it’s in almost every baked good and processed food out there. (Above photo by Markus Spiske on Unsplash) While we all love sugary sweets from time to time, sugar can start to have a negative impact on our health. Those with health conditions like diabetes have to be extra cautious of their sugar intake to manage their glucose and blood sugar levels.  Luckily there are many sugar substitutes that can help satisfy your sweet tooth while reducing the risk of health complications. Some of these healthy sugar alternatives include: 

Xylitol: a sugar alcohol extracted from corn and found in many fruits and vegetables

Stevia: a plant-based sweetener pulled from the leaves of a South-American plant, Stevia rebaudiana 

Whole fruit: unprocessed whole fruits that are not sweetened with added sugars 

Erythritol: a sugar alcohol found in grapes, peaches, watermelons and mushrooms

Monk fruit: extract from monk fruit or luohan guo, which is in the gourd family
