Are there any healthy alternatives to sugar? Can you compare 5gms of sugar,stevia,Jaggery,Honey

Question: I was wondering if there are any healthy alternatives to sugar? Can you compare 5gms of sugar,stevia,Jaggery,Honey

Answer:  Firstly sugar is sugar irrespective its coming from leaf (Stevia), fruit(Fructose) , Natural (Honey), Artificial(refined sugar). Consuming fructose increases your hunger and desire for food more than glucose, the main type of sugar found in starchy foods. Excessive fructose consumption may cause resistance to leptin, an important hormone that regulates hunger and tells your body to stop eating.

Thts d reason I avoid giving even Fruits to my clients on Fatloss meal plan for the best fatloss results. Now, In a head to head contest lets see how everything fares as “Healthy Alternatives” .





JAGGERY:
"Gur" or jaggery is cane sugar. It is considered a non-centrifugal sugar because unlike other processed cane sugars it is not spun which keeps the molasses and the nutrients intact It also contains iron and other trace mineral salts. unlike traditional cane sugar jaggery has digestive benefits as it activates the digestive enzymes and changes to acetic acid once in the stomach which helps speed up digestion. Gram by gram, jaggery is more nutritious than sugar. However, it's essentially still sugar, and any extra nutrients you get come with a lot of calories. You would also need to eat A LOT OF jaggery to get a meaningful amount of these nutrients, which you can get in much greater amounts from OTHER sources.

HONEY:

consumption of raw honey may raise polyphenolic antioxidant levels in blood and reduce the risk of damage by free radicals. In addition, the glucose in honey is absorbed by the body quickly and gives an immediate energy boost, while the fructose is absorbed more slowly providing sustained energy. It is known that honey has also been found to keep levels of blood sugar fairly constant compared to other types of sugar. For these reasons it is good to include honey in your overall diet plan.

STEVIA:
Stevia is a South American plant which is also known as honeyleaf. Other than the hype of not adding calories it does not bring in any health benefits or Nutrition value man.

Refined SUGAR:
I need not tell much, everyone knows it brings in Empty calories with no vitamins and minerals and will only trigger fat conservation.

So Your order of preference:
NO SUGAR > HONEY > FRUITS > JAGGERY > STEVIA > SUGAR
