Where do I even start with this beast of a topic? It should come as no surprise to hear that refined sugar is the single biggest dietary contributor to the rise in chronic disease and also leads to nutrient deficiencies. Sugar is liked to: diabetes, PMS, Alzheimer’s disease, ovulatory dysfunction, brain fog, gut dysbiosis, irritability & behavioural problems in kids. But, where do the noncaloric sweeteners stack up? Are things like Stevia, Monk Fruit, Maltitol, Sorbitol, etc.
