Chef's Notes

Some examples of healthy sugar alternatives include the yacon root—a South American tuber that produces healthy fructooligosaccharides (FOS) —indigestible long chain sugars that taste sweet, but can't be absorbed through the intestinal wall. Navitas Naturals Yacon Syrup tastes somewhat like molasses and enhances the flavor of any food needing an extra sweet touch. Another excellent source of low-glycemic sweetening comes via Lucuma Powder, a South American fruit that tastes a lot sweeter than it actually is! A very popular alternative sweetener getting a lot of attention lately is coconut palm sugar. It can be used as a 1:1 substitute for regular sugar in any recipe, but with about half the actual sugars per serving.
