alternative sweeteners / natural sugar substitutes
Please note that the price of some of these sweeteners may be a littlehigher than
in the shops. This is to allow for the higher cost of postage, as these items are
heavier than other items we sell. It does not mean you will end up paying more for
these items than on other sites - in fact, it is quite likely you will be paying
a little less.
balinese coconut palm sugar(made from the nectar of the coconut tree (NOT from
palm); GI of 35; rich nutritional content; ethically and sustainably produced; can
be used as a 1:1 replacement for cane sugar; dissolves easily in liquids; not raw
but minimally processed)
yacon root syrup(pesticide/agrochemical free, ethically traded; low calorie, sweetness
comes mainly from ‘fructooligosaccharides’ which cannot be absorbed by the body and
which feed the friendly bacteria in the gut)

agave syrup(dark agave salmiana; Mexico; pesticide/agrochemical free; ethically
traded; GI of around 40)
xylitol (GM free, GI of 7-11; not raw; please note that xylitol is not yet available
as an organic product)
This agave is not raw, but is fairly lightly processed compared to most other agave syrups. Taste-wise, on my workshops it always gets a big thumbs-up from attendees when they try it against ‘normal’ processed agave syrup.
Yacon has a slightly medicinal taste so it doesn’t work in all sweet recipes. But it does work in some (for instance I specify those in which you can use it in the I Love Raw Chocolate! Recipe E-Book), and I have found that the taste does grow on you - in some recipes I now actually prefer it to other sweeteners. Can work well used in combination with xylitol for a very ‘tooth-friendly’ recipe.
Two varieties: 350g - £3.50
sweet freedom original (fairly neutral taste and a good replacement for honey or
sweet freedom dark (a more distinctive molasses like taste)
