3 Diabetic Friendly Sugar Substitutes

Learn about 3 Diabetic Friendly Sugar Substitutes that taste great and swap out easily for plain old sugar in everything from quick breads, to puddings, to coffee

With diabetes and metabolic syndrome on the rise, there likely isn’t a Thanksgiving table out there that couldn’t use a little modification in the sugar department. Plus, once we have a good nap, and get up early for Black Friday, the holiday baking bonanza begins!  With that in mind, I’ve published a quick video on my favorite 3 Diabetic Friendly Sugar Substitutes.

In this video, I talk about the texture, taste, application and uses of each of these all natural, diabetic friendly sugar substitutes. You won’t find any sucralose or aspartame here! These sweeteners are naturally derived from plants, one of which I grow in my own backyard!

Cutting sugar out of a baked goods recipe can lead to less than optimal results. If you haven’t used one of the sweeteners listed in the video before, and you are not diabetic, I highly recommend substituting in a portion of the sugar called for. For example, if grandma’s favorite cookie recipe calls for 1 cup of granulated sugar, try swapping out one quarter to one half of that amount with one of the sweeteners I’ve recommended, note the results and go from there.

    Where do I buy green stevia. I heard about it, supposed to be better than reg. stevia. Thanks

  2. How does Coconut Sugar compare to the three that you referenced above

    • Coconut sugar really is a different beast entirely, as it DOES affect the blood sugar. That being said, it is a great alternative to regular sugar (especially brown sugar) for those who are sensitive to sugar, but not diabetic.

  3. Please are you able to tell me whether fructose content is a concern with Swerve? Other than consuming whole fruit in moderation I do seek to avoid consuming isolated and concentrated quantities of fructose for health reasons. Thank you.

    • It is a sugar alcohol so it contains no fructose. It lists “oligosaccharides” if you’d like to look that up to see how it differs from fructo-oligosaccharides.
