Option #3 - Both! - Do a bit of both!

Okay, we are NOT advocating sugar here. In fact, us Mods are trying to reduce sugar in our lives. Some of us feel, despite some differing opinions in certain areas of the scientific community, that sugar is addictive. Very! The more sugar you eat, the more you want. (Crave!)

Because of that, we thought long and hard before creating this challenge. But, we figure, know thy enemy.

Lisa Kay went to a wellness resort to get “off” sugar. Not easy, but “doable” in a controlled environment. So hard back in the Real World because it is in EVERYTHING! Read your processed food labels! Also, beware of things not on the label. Some drinks say there have 0% sugar in them because they are allowed to round down to the nearest 0.5 g per serving. (Watch how many servings are in a container!) Amounts less than 0.5 g are rounded to 0 g. This is why some 0% or “sugar free water” according to the back of the label, if consumed in large amounts, triggers high blood sugar in diabetics; it isn't really sugar free. **sigh**

At the wellness center she was told that, really, “a sugar is a sugar is a sugar” as far a calories go, and as far as what your body does with it. Yes, learning about Glycemic Index (view spoiler) is a good idea, but in reality, regular table sugar does not have a high GI, it has a moderate one. Go to www.veganbaking.net and scroll down to see their GI chart. (Check out what they have to say about agava, too.) At the wellness center they advised one to use the type of sugar that best enhances the flavor the food or recipe you're using. This way, you're more likely to use less. Honey goes better with some foods than does granulated sugar, while molasses is better in others. Experiment!

At the wellness resort, we were allows 24 gms a week of refined sugar, which is equal to 6 teaspoons a week. Just to get a grasp of that, there are 16 and 1/2 teaspoons of sugar in a coke!!! (FYI: the American Heart Association allows 6 teaspoons per day, but they are also including naturally occurring sugar in fruits and milk, etc.)

According to that Sugar film, the average American consumes about 40 teaspoons of sugar a day! Most of it refined. In Australia, their sugar intake is declining, but it is still about 27 teaspoons per day. But they're better than the U.S., with about half coming from refined sugar.

Certainly, we need to to understand it better. Read more about cooking with different types of sugars from our categories below. Also, check out Nerd Fitness which has some great suggestions for how to cut back on sugar. They also have some awesome videos.

We are also not covering that artificial crap here. Scientific studies show that those really lead to addiction, as your brain can't tell the difference, and people who use them just crave more regular sugar, too. Sugar, like salt, is an acquired taste. If you cut way back on it, you will discover the natural sweetness in “real” foods.

We're not covering Palm Sugar, either. Check out Orangutan Foundation International (Australia) as to why.

Also, not covering Stevia, either, though some people swear by it. Though it isn't high on the list, check out Headache & Migraine News for how it affects some people. It is a culprit for Lisa Kay, though, it could be all the fillers often used with it. The article also tells us “Stevia may interact with calcium channel blockers and anti-inflammatory medication.”

The first 11 sugars are from (www.thekitchn.com). Other references as noted.

WHITE SUG   Granulated Sugar: Granulated sugar is a highly refined, multi-purpose sugar. It's also sometimes called refined, table, or white sugar. When people talk about "sugar," this is usually what they're talking about. Granulated sugar is made from sugarcane and sugar beets. It's also the most common type of sugar used in baking and cooking. Read a .... book.

CASTER   Caster/Castor Sugar: Caster sugar (view spoiler) is superfine granulated white sugar. Because the crystals are so fine, they dissolve much quicker than standard granulated white sugar, which makes it ideal for making meringues, syrups, and cocktails. Mods Note - It also is great for sweetening cold beverages because it doesn’t need heat to dissolve. Read a .... book.

CONF SUG   Confectioners Sugar: Also referred to as powdered sugar and 10x sugar, this is a type of white sugar that has been ground into a fine powder. To prevent clumping, a small amount of cornstarch is typically blended in. Confectioners sugar easily dissolves in liquid, and is ideal for making icing and frosting, as well as decorating baked goods. Read a .... book.

PEARL   Pearl Sugar: Sometimes called nib sugar or hail sugar, pearl sugar is a variety of white sugar that has a coarse, hard texture and an opaque color. It also holds its shape, and doesn't melt when exposed to high temperatures. Pearl sugar is commonly used in Scandinavian in particular baking to decorate pastries, cookies, and buns. Mods Note - Also commonly used in Belgium and Italy. You can get the imported kind from Sweden that uses natural food coloring and is 100% Vegan, which uses Beet Sugar from colorblendcreaations.com Read a .... book.

SANDING   Sanding Sugar: Sanding sugar is used mainly for decorating. It has large crystals, which are fairly resistant to heat and add extra texture and crunch to cookies and other baked goods. You can find sanding sugar in a rainbow of colors. Read a .... book.

CANE   Cane Sugar: Unlike granulated sugar, which comes from sugarcane or sugar beets, cane sugar is produced solely from sugarcane and is minimally processed. It also has a slightly larger grain, darker color, and higher price tag. Use cane sugar the same way you would granulated sugar. Read a .... book.

DEM SUGAR   Demerara Sugar: Demerara sugar is a variety of raw cane sugar that is minimally refined. It has large grains with an amber color and a natural, subtle molasses flavor. Use it to sweeten coffee or tea, or as a topping on baked goods, like muffins, scones, cookies, and cakes. Read a .... book.

TURBINADO   Turbinado Sugar: Turbinado is another type of minimally refined raw cane sugar. This sugar variety has large, medium-brown crystals, and is often mistaken for standard brown sugar because of its color, although it's not the same thing. Turbinado sugar has a delicate caramel flavor and is commonly used to sweeten beverages and can also be used in baking. Mods Note: This is a common sugar for rimming mixed drinks because it looks like little golden crystals along the rim of the glass; however, regard or powdered sugar works well. Check this out for How To... without getting it into the drink (the sugar or salt may change the profile of the drink.) Read a .... book.

MUSCOVADO   Muscovado or Barbados Sugar: Also referred to as Barbados sugar, muscovado sugar is a variety of unrefined cane sugar in which the molasses isn't removed. It comes in dark and light varieties, and has a sticky, wet, sandy texture with a rich, complex flavor. While muscovado sugar can be used as a substitute for brown sugar, its flavor is much stronger. It's especially wonderful in barbecue sauce, marinades, and savory dishes. Mods Note: It is used in sweets with rich flavors such as gingerbread, coffee cake, and fudge. Read a .... book.

LBSUGAR   Light Brown Sugar: Light brown sugar is refined white sugar with a small amount of molasses added in. It has a wet, sandy texture — although less sticky than muscovado sugar — and a delicate caramel flavor. Use it for making any baked goods, as well as in savory dishes. Read a .... book.

DBSUGAR   Dark Brown Sugar: Like its lighter counterpart, dark brown sugar is refined white sugar with molasses added in. It contains more molasses than light brown sugar, which gives it a stronger, more intense flavor. Light and dark brown sugar can be used interchangeably. Read a .... book.

Phoenix (Online Elf) | 4358 comments
SUG 01   Panela or Rapadura Sugar: In Latin American countries (Brazil and Venezuela) and the Caribbean it is known as papelón or panela; in Portuguese it is rapadura. Made from dried sugarcane juice in the form of a brick, rapadura is largely produced on site at sugarcane plantations in very warm, tropical regions. It is supposedly more accessible, cheaper and healthier than refined suger. What is know is Rapadura is the least processed of all the cane sugars, and is rich in dietary iron. (For this one, we referenced: Wiki & www.smallfootprintfamily.com) Read a .... book.

HONEY   Honey: a sweet food made by bees foraging nectar from flowers. The variety produced by honey bees (the genus Apis) is the one most commonly referred to, as it is the type of honey collected by most beekeepers and consumed by people. Honey is also produced by bumblebees, stingless bees, and other hymenopteran insects such as honey wasps, (view spoiler) Honey bees convert nectar into honey by a process of regurgitation and evaporation: they store it as a primary food source in wax honeycombs inside the beehive. (Wiki) Check out www.epicurious.com for more info. Mods Note - Baking with honey can be very tricky, especially if you're replace it for regular sugar. Your best bet is to use recipes that specifically call for it, or use it when a recipe calls for maple syrup or agave. Read a .... book...

MAPLE   Maple Syrup: a syrup usually made from the xylem sap of sugar maple, red maple, or black maple trees, although it can also be made from other maple species. In cold climates, these trees store starch in their trunks and roots before the winter; the starch is then converted to sugar that rises in the sap in late winter and early spring. Maple trees can be tapped by drilling holes into their trunks and collecting the exuded sap, which is processed by heating to evaporate much of the water, leaving the concentrated syrup. Culinary experts have praised its unique flavour, although the chemistry responsible is not fully understood. (Wiki.) (Vegans use it a lot!) Read a book...

AGAVA Agava Syrup: Often falsely advertised as “natural,” is typically HIGHLY processed and is usually 80 percent fructose. The end product does not even remotely resemble the original agave plant. But, if you can find the original, go for it, as it has a low GI. It is much sweeter than sugar, so less of it is required in most recipes. Which is a good thing.

MOLASSES   Molasses: Molasses is about two-thirds as sweet as regular sugar. You can substitute it in recipes that call for brown sugar or even those calling for honey or maple syrup. Blackstrap molasses contains vital vitamins and minerals, such as iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin B6, and selenium. It has the lowest sugar content of any sugar cane product. Try using it in some of these methods: The dark color and full flavor of molasses is essential in holiday baking, namely gingersnaps.

COCONUT   Coconut Sugar: Also called Coconut Palm Sugar, but don't confuse with Palm Sugar. It is produced from the sap of cut flower buds of the coconut palm. Coconut sugar has been used as a traditional sweetener for thousands of years in the South and South-East Asian regions where the coconut palm is in abundant supply. Also a good idea to hear both sides; to do so, read www.livestrong.com verses www.bulletproof.com and you decide. With regards to cooking, it tastes more like brown sugar than it does coconut and is said to have a low glycemic index, which helps maintain blood sugar levels. It's an easy sugar substitute in most baking recipes.

DATE   Date Sugar: Date sugar is 100% dehydrated dates ground into small pieces. It is a whole food, high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Date sugar can be substituted for granulated sugar or brown sugar cup for cup, but it does not dissolve in liquids. Most alternative health practitioners consider Date Sugar to be a healthy sugar alternative. Fans of date sugar point out that it is more "food" than sugar. From www.livestrong.com:
In baked goods, date sugar can be substituted measure for measure for brown sugar and also granulated white sugar, if you like very sweet cakes, quick breads and cookies. Some cooks prefer using only 2/3 cup of date sugar per cup of white sugar. It is particularly good in nut or fruit breads and muffins where other ingredients also remain intact, but wonderful in cookie bars, fruit crisps and crumbles and as crumb toppings for pies. Try sprinkling it on top of fresh cinnamon rolls before baking. Because date sugar burns easily, it’s not usually a good choice for cookies that spread out flat during baking.

In batter, unlike true sugars, date sugar does not dissolve when stirred into water or liquids. To dissolve date sugar somewhat before using it in batters, Fran Costigan of NaturoDoc.com suggests adding boiling water to dissolve date sugar at least somewhat. This makes sense if water is part of the recipe anyway. Otherwise, just be aware that date sugar may show up as distinct, sweet flecks in cake, pancake or waffle batters.

Lara | 2335 comments So, is cane sugar supposed to be with a heroine who had suffered abuse?

There is also beet sugar, which is more common in Europe. That could be added and have that definition.

Or shall we just leave this as is, with cane sugar left as reader's choice?
