I have brought up this question before and I certainly don't want to offend anyone who follows Tosca Reno's advice. I do think most of what she says is very good. But here's the question: What do you (each one of you personally, for yourself) want to "clean" out of your body?? What do you want to have "cleaned" out of the food that you eat???
So the answer to any question about whether or not a food is "clean" must have those first two questions answered before anyone can even begin to answer the question "is.....clean?
If a person is wanting to clean sugar out of their body and food then even succanat isn't clean. If, however, a person wants to get synthetic chemicals out of their body and food then they might want to stick to organic. If they want to clean highly refined (spoiled) food stuff out of their bodies then they have to look at the steps each food takes to get from nature to table.
Succanat is sugar, pure and simple. I like a little sugar once in a while and so I occasionally use organic, evaporated cane juice crystals. There are different brands of this.
Succanat is one of the more minimally refined types of sugar and so would be preferable by anyone wanting a little treat sometimes but also wanting to avoid the extra toxic effects of typical, store-bought white sugar. Just be sure that the label says "organic" and "fair trade". There are many human abuses in the sugar industry.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
