Sweeteners to Avoid

A lot of people have been curious as to what sweeteners I have to avoid. Here is the list I received from my dietitian:

  • Agave Syrup
  • Brown Sugar(made with molasses)
  • Caramel
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup(HFCS)
  • Fructose
  • Honey
  • Corn Syrup
  • Molasses
  • Mannitol
  • Maple Syrup
  • Palm Sugar
  • Sorbitol
  • Splenda(Sucralose)
  • Xylitol
  • Beet Sugar

The ones that are the hardest for me to avoid so far are HFCS and corn syrup. They’re in everything. From the ice cream you get at Diary Queen to the bread you get at the super market. It’s been a struggle to avoid that stuff. Especially when I go out to eat. But I am slowly getting better at avoiding it. It just means that I can’t eat at some of my favorite places anymore. Which is a bummer.
