RAW Sugar? IS it healthier?

 

Many people are paying more money for RAW- is it hype, scam?

Teaspoon for teaspoon, raw and white sugars are calorically comparable. The difference lies within the presence of and quantity of minerals, because raw sugar contains molasses, hence retains small amounts of calcium, iron and potassium.

HOWEVER, sugar is sugar! Don’t be duped into believing that because the moniker RAW is used, there is a HUGE nutritional advantage. Limit your daily intake of sugar added. Remember the body converts all carbohydrates and fats into sugar for fuel and EXCESS sugar and acid form the base for diseases to feed.

We all like a little sweet, and over time your taste buds adjust to the lower levels- it did for me!

Currently I use coconut sugar.  Its made from the coconut palm sugar blossom, and contains  B vitamins, potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron. Although still a carbohydrate, it fails to raise blood sugar as much as traditional sugar so diabetics can use it. It also contains fewer calories than traditional sugar. The artificial stuff, rruuuuunnnn away from them FAST!
