Sugar: A Natural, Hopefully Minor Part of Our Diet

Whether we realize it or not, sugar is either directly or indirectly a part of our diet. Whether it’s through consuming sweet tasting fruits like dates, or using regular sugar in our cups of coffee or tea, we usually consume sugar on a daily basis.

Despite the fact that sometimes we need to consume sugar for energy, moderation is needed. As we all know, an overconsumption of sugar is not healthy for us, yet sometimes a but of sugar for a cup of coffee is fine.

As a matter of fact, it is a matter of dispute among researchers and medical experts as to how “bad” sugar is for us. Some say that as along as it’s consumed moderately, it’s fine, and sometimes, it’s even okay to “pig in” on sweets and sugary foods once a week.

Others however believe that sugar should be as avoided as possible,  and the more limited one’s consumption is, the better.

According to the World Health Organization, it is recommended to only intake sugar as 10% of one’s total energy intake.


Beware: Sugar May Be More Unhealthy Than You Think


Despite the medical dispute, there is substantial research demonstrating the fact that the everyday Xylitol Sweetenersugar we buy and use can have a negative effect on our health.

These studies do not necessarily reflect the sugars found in natural foods like fruits, but they nonetheless confirm that manufactured, refined sugar can be detrimental.

Manufactured, refined sugars have been shown to:

  • potentially lead to diabetes
  • cause diabetes
  • cardiovascular disease
  • lower our HDL cholesterol in our body, which can cause heart problems
  • directly lead to tooth decay
  • sugar addiction


Again, some of the above points are still subject to debate. But let’s be serious…

Would you want to risk your health for a transient sugary pleasure??



Xylitol Sweetener: The Natural Substitute

Instead of risking a deterioration in your health, use a more healthy, natural sweetener for your coffee, cookies, and other beverages and foods.

What type of sweetener am I talking about? Xylitol sweeteners!

Xylitol is a clinically proven sugar alcohol substance that has been using in a variety of products such as nasal sprays and toothpastes.

Since the late 60s, it has been researched, tested, consumed, and enjoyed by thousands, and when used, it has been shown to clean your teeth much better, destroy nasal bacteria that most nasal sprays fail to do, as well as decrease the heath risks found in consuming or using other non-xylitol products:



In short, it simply allows you to live healthier while still [moderately] enjoying the things we like.


Which Xylitol Sugar Product Should You Pick?


Xylitol SweetenerThere are many great quality xylitol sugar products out there such as Xlear. These products share the same characteristics such as non-GMO, all-natural, organic, etc.

However, out all xylitol sugars I’ve checked out, I saw that Morning Pep’s Xylitol Natural Sweetener stuck out.

When I first checked out this xylitol sugar online, I thought it was like all other sugars. It’s non-GMO, made from pure Birch syrup xylitol [some xylitol sugars are actually made artificially], low calorie, and has a very low Glycemic index.

But, when I examined it deeper I saw that Morning Pep’s xylitol natural sweetener is:

  • kosher**
  • vegetarian and made without any animal products
  • can help with weight loss
  • does not have an aftertaste
  • wheat, gluten, soy, and dairy free**
  • one of the only, if not, the only xylitol sweetener made in the USA. Not like other xylitol product that are made in Asian countries.
  • 40% less calories than regular sugar
  • looks and tastes EXACTLY like sugar
  • safe for diabetics**
  • 75% fewer carbohydrates
  • allergen free
  • safe for tooth and even fights plaque**


Xylitol Sweetener


Now, even for a xylitol sugar, thats a lot of nutritional benefits!

Most xylitol sweeteners are not kosher, all natural, sugar free, made in the USA, or have most or any of the above mentioned pluses like Morning Pep. Simply put, it’s almost unmatched


Cons: $$$

Quality-wise, this is a tremendous natural sugar product. But honestly, it is a bit more pricy than other xylitol sugars.

Other xylitol sweeteners can easily go for between $8.00-$14.00. As awesome as Morning Pep is, it does cost more than your average xylitol natural sweetener.

That being said, those sweeteners that are cheaper also come in smaller bags and are usually not as good of a nutritional or taste quality as Morning Pep.


Final Verdict

Despite the price, I still would choose Morning Pep’s xylitol sweetener as my number one choice. Though it is less popular than other brands, it outdoes it’s competition in quality and quantity.

And, considering it’s tremendous benefits, you may even save more money with this brand than others, considering it can better protect your teeth by fight plaque, as well as being safe for diabetics.

It tastes just as good as sugar, even in equal measurements to regular sugar. And it’s one of the few kosher xylitol products that are purely 100% from birch xylitol.

  • I enjoyed reading about the Xylitol vs. sugar debate. You make a good argument for making a change. The price can seem a little prohibitive for some, but what price good health?

    I like the graphics unhave used on you site also. Keep up the good work, I wish you every success.


    • Hey Josette,

      The price may be slightly higher, but the product I listed, you get a larger bag that will last you longer and it might ultimately cost less than buying multiple packages of sugar.

      Additionally, by consuming healthier products, you will ultimately save more money from going to the doctor, homeopath, hospital, etc.

      I appreciate your comments about the site and this specific post!



  • I have never heard of this brand of sweetener but will definitely try it. You are right about how much sugar we are consuming every day and the adverse effects it can have on our health. The only thing that worries me about artificial sweeteners is that they may be made up of unnatural chemicals. Is this true of Xylitol?
    Personally I have been using honey because it is natural and because I have eliminated most other sugars from my diet with the exception of milk and fruit sugars. This is a very timely article with the incidence of Type 2 Diabetes rising alarmingly.

    • Hey Margaret,

      To the best of my research and knowledge, xylitol does not contain chemicals. It is generally made 100% out of birch tree syrup, which is completely chemical free and 100% straight from G-d’s Creation :-). For those seeking weight loss and looking for a healthier substitute to sugar, xylitol is the way to go.

      Honey is also an awesome alternative to regular sugar, especially Manuka honey. I personally prefer honey in my tea over sugar. It tastes good and is healthier.



  • Hello here, thanks for review because nowadays a sugar is portrayed as foe number 1. People look for options how to change it.
    There so many opinions about sugar, because white sugar is different from cane or organic sugar, which is made from cane too.
    I think if we use sugar in a moderation, we will be okay. Unfortunately, people used to drink sodas, where are 8 or more tablespoons in one glass of Coke or similar product.
    Your offered sweetener seems good, without bad reputation. It is great for humans with risk of diabetes or hyperglycemia.
    I think that is good when Xylitol contains less 40% calories. It is good that it contains zero fructose. Glycemic index is low to, just 7 compare with sugar where glycemic index is about 60-70.
    Your offered sweetener is a great alternative to sugar.
    Thanks again, all the best, Nemira.

    • Hey Nemira,

      Thanks again for your thoughtful comments!

      Of course it is better to limit unhealthy foods and stick to the foods that are healthier for us overall. But nonetheless, moderation is any diet is key. Even if one overeats important foods like fruits and vegetables, it can be harmful to the body, just as much as regular sugar or candy.

      Thank you again for stopping by,


  • Hi! You gave great info here but I have a question. Can Xylitol be used just like sugar, teaspoon for teaspoon, in all baking and cooking? Thanks!
