As you may know, sugar is highly addictive, it’s found in many of the products we consume, and it is a major cause of chronic disease. But not all sugars are created equal. In today’s episode, Dr. B shares why we should stay far away from artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and sorbitol, and choose natural sweeteners like monk fruit (luo han guo) instead. Monk fruit is 200 times sweeter than sugar, contains no calories or carbs, and it tastes good! That’s why Dr. B recommends monk fruit-sweetened products (Evolved Keto Cups, for example) as a tooth-safe snack for your kids. Tune in today to hear more about this natural sweetener, other sources of “healthy” sugars, and a reminder that sugar is something that should be consumed in moderation!
