Natural Alternatives to Refined Sugar

Refined sugar is not only poor for our health, but it also put a strain on our environment as well.  There are natural alternatives to refined sugar that will fit into your balanced diets as well as the balance of our environment!

Refined sugar is made by extracting the sucrose from the sugar cane plant.  Once that is done, they use a purification system so to speak, to get out all of the stuff that comes in the plant, such as insect parts, and fibers from the plant.  This is how white sugar is made, the same type of sugar that we put on our cereal, or in our coffee.  White sugar is the most common type of sugar that is used today.  Sugar causes weight gain in us, and it takes up a lot of energy to actually make, which is why it is not too healthy for the environment.
