5 Ways to Replace Sugar in your Diet


This World Diabetes Day, let us guide you to a healthier lifestyle. You don’t have to be dependent on sugar when you have these natural substitutes waiting in line for you to try them.


The best option for blood sugar problems is here. Stevia is an all natural sweetener with no calories and originates from the leaf of Stevia Rebaudiana. It can also be freshly extracted by the local markets. Try to search for the most organic and healthy brand available. Make sure you don’t use it excessively and regulate your intake.

Raw Honey

Apart from sugar, raw honey also contains some types of electrolytes and antioxidants as well as amino acids. It also contains some antimicrobial compounds that can support the health of the body. Try to limit yourself to two tablespoons per day to make the most of the raw honeys potential. It’s a perfect companion for green tea and even the morning oatmeal or cornflakes.

Coconut Sugar

Very often an ideal replacement for sugar for cooking and baking. Coconut water from which coconut sugar is extracted is rich in electrolytes, potassium and other nutrients. Try searching for an organic option in the market.

Maple Syrup

We all know that maple syrup is the perfect sweet topping on your morning pancakes, but it can also be an effective sugar substitute. It also has a more earthy flavor that adds a different touch to many recipes. The antioxidants in maple syrup provide great health benefits to the body.


Another great option is dates. High in potassium and fiber, dates are packed with health benefits with vitamins and minerals. The high nutritional value and sweet flavor is a great companion to reduce the sugar. Dates also help regulate body sugar due to the potassium levels and unlike other substitutes it is not an actual sugar, but contains sugar.
