Coconut Crystals vs. Xylitol ?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Is Coconut Crystals: http://www.coconutsecret.com/crystals2.html

Any better than sugar?

Is it better than Xylitol? http://store.xylitolusa.com/products/1lb-Xylitol-Bag.html

Having just finished the Perfect Health Diet book (which I loved), I have a growing sense that too much fructose is bad for the liver, and body overall.

What's the Paleo Party Line on the best sweetener?

Thanks, Mike

PS: I seem to recall reading that xylitol has some good properties for teeth and reducing bio-film, whatever that is.

I'd avoid the corn sourced products.

Honey can't be beat. Xylitol can be made of corn or birch, hard to know which. There is a little voice against xylitol lately. We have taken it off our shop shelves until we hear good news. If in doubt, throw if out! (ie don't do it)

Raw honey cant be beat for flavour and health properties

My line on best sweetener is the most local raw honey to wherever you happen to be or enjoy yourself going to.

Agree on the honey. Recently bought some coconut sugar for a recipe - I think it tastes pretty funky. Stick with honey or Grade B maple sauce for a smokier taste, and use it all sparingly.
