My husband has switched to a sugar substitute due to his sugar levels being high, not outrageously high but high enough to be on meds. I'm not a big fan of an aspertaime sub., have used stivia but the after taste is not the best. On Thursday I was at the European Market and came across an organic substitute for sugar made from a tree in Mexico. It replaces sugar or honey altogether. It is called Agave Syrup. Used it today in our morning coffee's and it was great, no after taste. So for you health conscious people you may want to look into it.
