I was just wondering who has now changed their sugar from refined to healthy alternatives like Coconut Sugar or Rapadura? Now that they are once again pointing out the harm refine sugar does on the human body.

Using healthy alternatives with sugar

We use coconut sugar or date paste. The date paste is delicious in baked goods!

I've looked into all of them, even though coconut palm sugar and rapadura are better alternatives to white sugar as in lower GI and more nutrients they still contain fructose which is the problem so we've just cut back on using /making too many sugary foods and just leave them as sometime foods , ill make cakes or pavlova every few weeks and use sugar but we don't have juice/ soft drinks /jams / packet food /sauces or lollies in the house , ( except party times!)
I've got coconut palm sugar I use for muffins and if I need sugar in cooking or I have stevia for tea/coffee which we rarely drink

I have stopped using sugar in baking which is where it was most appearing. Been making lots of date based things or just omitting sugar, at times use Rice Malt syrup.
If anyone has a suggestion to replace honey on porridge it would be appreciated. We have honey on our porridge for breakfast but it appears honey is as bad as sugar so any suggestions would be good!

I'd do research before using coconut sugar. A palm can produce fruit or sugar but not both which means that more land will be cleared to fill the demand of this new trend.
