Recipe: Sugar Free Glazed Fish
Indulging in sweetened meals or desserts can be tempting, but we can all agree that sugar is not great for our health, and artificial sweeteners aren’t any better.
There are natural sweeteners that can replace sugar in a variety of recipes, from baked goods to beverages. Not only do they provide sweetness without the added calories and potential negative health effects of sugar, but they also have other benefits, such as being low glycemic, and not causing spikes in blood sugar levels.
Recommended Natural Sweetener
The Body Ecology’s BE Sweet ™ is made from a specialized blend of three of the safest sugar substitutes. This blend is delicious, bitter-free, and satisfyingly sweet without an aftertaste. BE Sweet is made from monk fruit, stevia, and allulose. Let’s take a closer look at these sugar-free alternatives.
Derived from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant, Stevia is a natural sweetener that is significantly sweeter than sugar. As a result, only a small quantity is required to achieve the same level of sweetness. Stevia is versatile. Use it in baking, cooking, and beverages. It is accessible in various forms, including powder, liquid, and granular.
Monk fruit is a natural sweetener obtained from the monk fruit plant. It is comparably sweeter than sugar and can be used in similar ways to Stevia. Monk fruit is accessible in powder and liquid forms, and certain products may incorporate other natural elements such as erythritol to maintain consistency.
Allulose is a unique sugar that is naturally present in specific fruits and vegetables. While it tastes and feels similar to regular sugar, it has substantially fewer calories. Allulose is versatile. Use it in baking, cooking, and beverages. It is available in liquid and granular forms.
