Trying to cut down sugar/sweets in my diet. Are there any alternative sweeteners that are safe and don't cause unpleasant side effects?

Trying to cut down sugar/sweets in my diet. Are there any alternative sweeteners that are safe and don't cause unpleasant side effects?

Erythritol, stevia: I agree with Dr. Jayaraj that stevia is a healthy alternative sweetener but not everyone likes its flavor. Erythritol may be the safest natural sweetener available and tastes more like sugar. See http://authoritynutrition. Com/erythritol/
Xylitol is another good choice, though large amounts may cause loose stools. ...Read more

Are there any side effects of artificial sweetners.?

Are there any side effects of artificial sweetners.?

I believe not: Other healthtap practitioners will want to share their own thinking. The enormous internet campaign against aspartame began with one pseudonymous individual offering preposterous, obviously malicious claims. Any time the public is told something is harmful, there will be anecdotes, support groups, and militants. If you must drink pop, i'd rather you avoid the sugar & obesity. Best wishes. ...Read more

What are the side effects in using dextrose sugar substitute?

Depends: There are three main sugar substitutes-equal, slenda & nutrisweet. They have been tested extensively and are believed to be safe, although some people can have some sensitivities to one or another. Then there is stevia, which is plant based. Btw-just because something is natural doesn't necessarily make it safe. The saying-everything in moderation, is the best way to go. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can you please tell me about health effects of side effects of using xylitol as sugar substitute?

Not so much: The first big randomized controlled study to determine the benefits of xylitol in reducing caries in a susceptible population found no statistically significant benefit. I think that the important lesson here is that while xylitol is not a magic bullet, there is much wisdom in limiting the amount of sugar consumed and xylitol may help. ...Read more

Which artificial sweetener or sugar substitute is not connected to cancer?

Which artificial sweetener or sugar substitute is not connected to cancer?

None of them are!: Study the evidence. The trials in the 1970s triggering cancer in rats with cyclamate + saccharin used gigantic doses & have no clear relevance to either usual dosages or humans. Study: http://www. Cancer. Gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Risk/artificial-sweeteners. However, there is evidence that real sugar is linked to a higher incidence of cancer, both directly and through promoting obesity. ...Read more

No clear answer: Theoretically no. Most artificial sweeteners are labeled non-caloric, because there is no calorie absorption and induced weight gain, but more and more studies that look at the long term effects of artificial sweeteners have shown correlations between weight gain and the use of sugar substitutes. Without long term and more comprehensive studies to support that correlation the answer is not clear. ...Read more
