Determined to be up to 150 times sweeter than sugar, stevia has been touted for many years as a natural substitute for white refined sugar as well as the various artificial sweeteners.
Stevia has the added benefits of being pH-stable, heat-stable, and non-fermentable. The two primary active compounds — stevioside and rebaudioside — are known as steviol glycosides.

For most people the idea of giving up sugar for an entire year is more than daunting. It isn’t as if you would just give up your favorite dessert, but you would also have to give up almost every food sold in the grocery store (…almost every food). To a woman named Eve Schaub, this was not an insurmountable task, but her family’s journey into no-sugar-land was quite eye-opening.
Eve used to think that being tired all the time was just part of the over-worked American’s lifestyle – s [...]

There’s Big Pharma, Big Ag, and now Big Sugar – all industries too sweet on the smell of money to be truthful about their products to the public. New information has come forth that proves the sugar industry knew their products would cause dental and health issues since the 1950’s, but they worked with our government agencies (cigarette-ad-campaign-style) to make sure we wouldn’t know the true damage sugar could cause until we were all addicted.

A favorite meal among children of all ages, cereal has become a primary focus for food producers to push on children through sly marketing and advertising. Unfortunately, Tucan Sam and Tony the Tiger don’t represent anything that children should be eating.

Worse, the amount of sugar used has often increased over the past 2 years, despite promises from [...]

Chocolate-producing giant Hershey offers many highly processed chocolate candies and products, and that most definitely won’t change anytime soon. The mega-corp is, however, considering an ingredient transition which would replace the highly vilified (for good reason) high fructose corn syrup with old-fashioned sugar. It doesn’t change much in terms of the health-qualities of the company’s chocolate products, but it is a sign of how our collective voice is causing companies to [...]
Having a healthy pantry doesn’t mean that you have to skip all things sweet and tasty. A spoonful of sugar doesn’t just help the medicine go down. It can add a sense of normalcy and a little touch of luxury in a bad situation. Can you imagine celebrating a special occasion without dessert? Sugar can be used to activate the yeast in breadmaking, and in home preservation and jam-making.
It’s important to be particular about the source of your sugar, however. The white sug [...]
I have to admit, this video really cracked me up. I get the feeling that if I ever have kids, I’ll definitely mess with them on occasion.

It should come as no surprise that companies like Coca Cola, Pepsi, and others are putting GMO sugar in sodas, and then calling them natural. These companies are involved with the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association (the political front of biotech and food manufacturers that support GMOs). After all, they don’t even think you have the right to know what is in your food, so why should they label it as such – even if the word ‘natural’ is entirely misleading.
That’s exactly what comp [...]
