Stevia vs Refined Sugar: Which Is Better?

Do You Know What’s Going Into Your Body?

Hello, and welcome back to the SoPure Stevia blog! As the old adage goes, “you are what you eat”, and, in our opinion, this is a face that many people tend to overlook. With the wide variety of products available to consumers today, it is more difficult now than ever for people to truly understand what they are loading into their bodies. Between all of the additives, preservatives, and additional ingredients that are found in the food on our shelves it can be next to impossible to know exactly what we are consuming on a daily basis. While most ingredients found in our food are not particularly harmful, the amount of refined sugar is, in our opinion, alarming. Refined sugar has, time and time again, been shown to be detrimental to our health and, in today’s post, we wanted to go over a few ways that stevia is better for your health than refined sugar.

Next Time, Choose Stevia

While it may be harder to control when you go out to eat or buy pre-packaged food from the grocery store, when you make food for yourself you have much more control over the amount of sugar that goes into your recipe. While we aren’t saying that you have to cut out every ounce of sugar in your life, cutting out the amount of refined sugar you ingest is always a good idea. Below, we have listed a few ways that replacing refined sugar with stevia can benefit your health.

  • Suppress Cravings: As most people already know, sugar is addictive. The more sugar you eat, the more you want to eat sugar and, unfortunately, this can quickly turn into an issue. Unlike refined sugar, stevia is non-habit forming, meaning that you can ingest it as frequently as you want without worrying about whether or not you will crave it later. Additionally, stevia also helps to suppress overall cravings that people experience. So, not only will this sugar substitute help you break your sugar addiction, it will also help you control any other cravings you may have.
  • Help Your Teeth: As people consume refined sugar, a sticky layer of bacteria forms along the teeth. As the bacteria spreads, they can cause a host of oral health issues including plaque buildup, cavities, and bad breath. Stevia, however, is unable to be digested by the bacteria in the mouth, meaning that the bacteria will not spread across the teeth like it does when it is exposed to refined sugar.
