So, if you have diabetes or you are a health-conscious person and looking for a natural sweetener, then these sugar alternatives are for you. Have a look and feel healthier:

Stevia – Stevia is the newbie among sugar substitutes. More and more people suffering from diabetes are making a paradigm shift towards the usage of stevia to manage their blood sugar levels as it has a low GI and low calories. Derived from a shrub native to North and South America, it can help you manage the diabetes condition, but do make sure to change your diet and lifestyle habits and take medications on a regular basis. It may also help lower blood pressure amongst people suffering from hypertension. From several studies, it has been found that among all sweeteners it has the least amount of Glycemic Index.

Organic Coconut Palm Nectar – Another natural sweetener for diabetics that is the powerhouse of all essential nutrients such as potassium, magnesium, iron, phosphorous and is a natural source of Vitamin C. It is naturally low in the Glycemic Index which helps in weight control and improves glucose and lipid levels in people with both types of diabetes. It is the perfect liquid sweetener that is easy to use, tastes great and is the perfect healthy sweetener for you and your family. The nectar has a rich buttery caramel flavor. It is the perfect ingredient used in the baking of delicious pancakes, yogurt or tofu.

Agave – Agave syrup is derived from a cactus that releases an all-natural sweetener rich in calcium and has a low content of calories. Agave is low in glucose, and therefore, does not spike the blood sugar levels. This gives the agave syrup low glycemic index. As it is high in fructose, it is recommended to consume it at a moderate level. Remember, too much of anything is bad for your health.

Heritage Palm Sugars – Subtly sweet and with an aroma of smoke and caramel, Coconut Palm Sugar is the perfect natural sweetener for diabetics. This is the world’s first certified organic coconut sugar. It is a pure and unrefined evaporated nectar that is naturally high in nutrients and has a glycemic index rating of 35.
