The Top Five Natural Sweeteners

When switching to a whole food diet, one of the first changes I made was cutting out processed sugars- I said goodbye to supermarket sugar and high fructose corn syrup for good! The switch was easy when you consider all of the great natural sweeteners available. I use maple syrup for marinades, coconut sugar for cupcakes, sucanat in my tea, and honey in my smoothies! If you see a recipe that calls for the natural sweetener of your choice, refer to this infographic for the top five in my book!


If you’re looking to purchase natural sweeteners online, Whole Some Sweeteners (featured in our 2013 Forest of Fame) has a variety of organic and fair trade options.
