14-05-2010 Sugar Sweet, Sweet Alternative
We are always looking for new ways to sweeten our lives without adding extra calories and now we find there are new and healthy sugars without chemical additives. The Stevia plant has been used as a sugar alternative for hundreds of years. Turbinado sugar is a brown and crunchy sweetener similar to brown sugar but completely natural. Fruits can also be used to sweeten our food, such as Rambutan and mangosteen which are sweet fruits native to Asia, and while you may have tried agave in a tequila, now its nectar can be added to sweeten tea and coffee.
