Have you tried yacon syrup, it is not as sweet as agave, but kind of carmelly. It is good if you need watch blood sugar or sugar in general.
Raw agave is always a winner.
100% Pure Maple Srup is okay, but those calories can add up quick!
you can always soak dates and blend them if they are cheaper.
I hear its good. you could even use Stevia, but its so strong.. I think there are some health risks.. getting cancer, but you probably are risking getting cancer by walking outside anyway... :)Agave is great, here in denmark its too expensive so im looking for alternatives too
As far as I know maple syrup is only available cooked (it goes through quite a lengthy process to go from sap to syrup). I couldn't find any references for raw maple syrup, and every raw site I went to said it is only available cooked.
Careful with dates…they soak them into glucose and add E(forgot which one ) plus a sulphur,i check the whole sell boxes those comes from from Tunisia…the shinny ones may have glucos.use only organic and even those be sure are glucose free
All maple syrup is heavily cooked. Raw sweeteners: RAW agave (it can also be cooked) Madhava brand is widely available in the US, yacon syrup, yacon root powder, mesquite powder, stevia (SweetLeaf flavored stevias are fabulous, Now brand liquid stevia does not have the bitter aftertaste). Stevia is the best choice, it does not feed candida yeast in the GI tract and heals the pancreas. It absolutely is NOT a carcinogen. See healing.about.com/cs/uc_directory/a/uc_stevia_jones.htm or www.stevia.net/safety.htm, or Google "stevia carcinogenic"
Most Americans (including raw foodists) have issues with candida, molds, fungi, parasites, and pathogenic bacteria and viruses. All sugars feed them. Stevia technically is an herb and chemically is not a sugar. Stevia does not taste good mixed in fats, oils, or nuts. Mixing other sugars with fats feeds these pathogens. When you truly get rid of candida and other pathogens, you generally lose your taste for sweeteners or even much fruit.
Although not vegan, raw honey has healing and antiseptic properties.
