Healthy alternatives to sugar
      Satisfying your sweet tooth and snacking healthy are no longer mutually exclusive. At Urban Remedy, we couldn’t go without our sweets and so have found yummy substitutes for refined sugars. We’re just here to help satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you slender.

What Is So Bad about Refined Sugar?

      Refined is an adjective best kept away from your sugar. White, or refined, sugar has gone through a purification process that eliminates all vitamins and minerals, with little more than a remote possibility of nutritional value, and creating a product that is “pure” and easy to duplicate. We hate to break it to you, but the only thing pure about white sugar is that it is purely unhealthy.
      Without any of the vitamins or minerals of raw, natural sugar cane, eating white sugar satisfies your taste buds and adds calories to your diet without supplying your body with any vitamins or minerals of nutritional value. What a waste!

Sweet Substitutes

      Now, finding natural sweetening substitutes for sugar has never been easier. Here are two great options for sugar substitutes!

Stevia

Stevia is a 100% natural sweetener derived from plant leaves. Free of carbohydrates, calories, and caffeine, stevia is a wonderful solution to satisfy your sweet cravings.
At Urban Remedy, we use stevia in our pineapple coconut protein shake. Drink up for a quick trip to your sweetest paradise!

Agave

Agave Nectar has a low glycemic index, which provides sweet flavor without the unhealthy blood sugar spike associated with white sugars. This sweetener is big on yum and long on fun!
You can find agave nectar in our brittles and other meals in the bottle!
Dates

Dates are high in fiber absorbing LDL-cholesterol and naturally replenish energy levels, making them the perfect natural candy. At Urban Remedy, we make our gluten-free cookies with dates, and they are sinfully delicious. At home you can throw 1-2 in a smoothie, use them as a sweetener in recipes, or pop one in your mouth for a tasty sweet treat.

          Next time your sweet tooth has you craving sugar, satisfy it naturally! Feed it a naturally sweet treat, for a satisfying snack and a healthy body! Dessert is finally good for you. What a sweet deal!
