I really enjoyed reading about all the different sweeteners. Personally, I love using the Raw or Turbino sugar; I've used it for about 7 years now instead of white, refined sugar. I use it for anywhere sugar is called for but didn't know about lowering the cooking temperature. I'm glad the article gave the replacements ratio to sugar, the flavor of each, etc. A great article!

The article was good, but too bad they didn't include Xylitol information.
Stevia is another natural sweetener that you can find in natural food stores and many grocery stores. It is classified as a supplement by the FDA. It is recommended as an alternate sweetener for people with Syndrome X (pre-diabetes).
This is a very informative article since I like to use real sweeteners (sugar). I am going to give some of these a try. One question, is the 3/4 cup of honey or maple syrup mentioned the substitutes for 1 cup of sugar?
