All sugar should be consumed in small quantities no matter which one you choose. If you need to have something that is low-glycemic then agave is an alternative. There are many articles for and against it as with all other sugars. So the best thing to do is consume in small amounts. :)

Agave isn't as wholesome as some want us to believe. It's fructose and has almost twice as much as HFCS - eek! I can post a bunch of articles on it but found this that cites most of the other articles www.savvyvegetarian.com/blog/health/

I prefer to use Wholesome Sweeteners Blue Agave nectar. It's great for baking with gluten-free flours because it helps add moisture. It is natural without a bad aftertaste. You can also put it in coffee and tea. It's a low-glycemic food too. Here is an article with more info exm.nr/HSUINh Hope it helps. Have a great day!

Sugar is made from beets or cane sugar so it is safe, like JENCORINNE said and that you have a fungus problem. Fungus likes sugar.

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

There's no gluten in sugar so should be safe, unless you're dealing with Candida or other sugar issues.

We normally buy organic sugar, but on a wheat/gluten free diet, can that be used in recipes?

Nothing worth having comes easy!!!!
