Refined white sugar is well known as one of the five white poisons. It contains zero nutrients, raises blood sugar which creates hormonal imbalances and also feeds the bad bacteria in our gut, which can lower our immune response and hamper the absorption of nutrients.
What about other so-called healthy refined sweeteners in the market such as jaggery, maple syrup, palm sugar, coconut sugar etc. ? Although a little better than white sugar as they may contain some nutrients, they are highly processed and lack fibre, hence cause the same results in our body as white sugar. (Use these occasionally – if at all).
