Understand which is the best natural sweetener from the postural salutistico it is difficult in the midst of the numerous conflicting proposals and rumors ...
A good scientific research can finally point you with a firm and sure hand on which products of the shelf to manage.
THE EMPTY CALORIES OF THE COMMON SWEETENERS
Normally sweeteners are characterized by empty calories.
The vast majority of sweeteners are sugars (which give the body immediate calories) without no other nutrient that enriches the nutritional and micronutritional profile.
This wealth of empty calories makes most sweeteners a bad habit that produces hyperglycemia and places an excess of calories in the system.
But there are some rare exceptions!
THE BEST NATURAL SWEETENERS: NOT ONLY EMPTY CALORIES
Surely you will know that the wealth of antioxidants of a food determines its protective potential against i free radicals.
But antioxidants also have another lesser known property ...
They tend to cancel some negative effects of the fructose, which has been associated with the activation of the circuit breakersobesity.
An interesting scientific research reveals that there are a couple of particularly natural sweeteners wealthy of antioxidants.
This property makes them the best natural sweeteners which, in addition to calories, also offer a spectrum of antioxidants that are very palatable from a health point of view.

Lo oxidative stress it is related to the development of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and other degenerative diseases.
Give priority to naturally rich foods antioxidants represents one of the most effective defenses against these diseases.
Foods naturally rich in antioxidants can never be beaten effectively by any pill containing a single isolated antioxidant.
ANTIOXIDANTS IN CONCERT
The synergy between numerous protective molecules that can be found in a plant, a fruit, a seed, etc. work in concert and with lower doses they produce the best possible effect.
So why not give preference to natural sweeteners that can make a contribution in this sense instead of using the first one that happens between your hands?
Here is a very useful list of natural sweeteners (coming from the research I reported in the "sources" at the end of the article) in which the winners stand out date flour and molasses.
Following at some distance from these first two winners follow the barley malt and rice malt.
The other "losing" natural sweeteners due to their low or insignificant antioxidant content are brown sugar, maple syrup, honey, agave, etc.
Used with moderation - because they are still rich in sugar - date flour (alternatively the date concentrate) and molasses help to bring both sweetness and antioxidant protection into your body.
