There really isn’t much of a difference when it comes to sugar, artificial or natural. They are calorie dense and have little to no nutritional value. The all-natural sweetners (the ones that contain nutrients and other molecules than just sugar) are honey, maple syrup, and molasses. When it comes to the best overall choice, it’s between Allulose or Stevia. Both are natural but are refined. Which to choose? It depends on your preference: Stevia is significantly sweeter than sugar so you can use much less of it, making it cheaper. Allulose is only 70% as sweet as sugar so you have to use more of it making it more expensive. However, Allulose has a better flavor and is better for baking than Stevia. I prefer Allulose because of the superior flavor.

I spent the first part of my life playing piano and composing music. I graduated from UCLA with a degree in music composition and cognitive science. Then I became a User Interface Engineer for four years. I moved home to Raleigh, NC to be closer to my family and began to freelance. On the side, I created a company called Elemental Nutrition & Wellness that uses interactive resource calculators to give people the tools they need to lose weight and boost nutrition. Now I have my own practice as a holistic nutritionist. I help people meet their weight loss goals by fostering self-motivation. You can reach me at ross@elementalnutritionandwellness.com.
