Delicious natural sweetener

I tried Sucanat based on Dr. Marcus Laux recommending it in his health newsletter as a substitute for white and brown sugar. I bought this brand and substituted it for brown sugar in a cookie recipe. It was so delicious, I have been using it as a sugar substitute ever since. Please note, though: while Sucanat is very nutritious compared to white and brown sugar, it still has a high glycemic index, as any sugar does. For that reason, when substituting for sugar in recipes, I also use these other natural sweeteners: stevia, FOS and Lo Han Guo, all of which were also recommended by Dr. Laux. NOW sells stevia for a great price, which I also got from iHerb. You can also use sugar alcohols as an additional substitute--and NOW sells them, too. However, sugar alcohols, because the body does not digest them, cause most people, including myself, intestinal distress, so I can't use them.

This is a very nice, mellow sweetener.
