Honey, white sugar or maple syrup. White sugar the most, for baking.

I don't think that brown sugar is significantly different. I consider thinking it's somehow healthier a self-delusion.

I've diabetes 1, so I use artifical sweetener, as aspartam if I need a lot of sweet taste in cakes and pastries. But I also use white sugar if I only need a small amount to sweeten a pancake or porridge. I NEVER sweeten tea or coffee. It's blasphemy :XD:

Honey is the best aromatic sweetener I can think of. I even use it for my coffee. :)

es ist schade, dass Stevia hierzulande solche schwierigkeiten hat zugelassen zu werden. ich hab nur gutes über Stevia gehört und bekomme es doch nirgends. wahrscheinlich hat wieder mal eine lobby die finger im spiel, wie fast immer bei guten vielversprechenden und zukunftweisenden produkten. :hmm:

Es ist in der Tat eine sehr gute Alternative zu Zucker und anderen Süßungsmitteln. Aber es ist wie mit allen gesundheitsfördernden Substanzen, sie werden entweder totgeschwiegen oder verboten. Am besten, Du bestellst es über das Internet, ich kenne einige Leute, die es benutzen.

I use either white sugar or raw cane sugar, since I am allergic to Fructose and high fructose corn syrup I gotta really watch it.

I do not use sweeteners for my coffee and tea for sometime now. I got use to the real taste of coffee and tea. It's just a matter of conditioning your taste buds. Only now that I have this sore throat. I use honey with lemon to sooth my sore throat again.

When I drink milk I add honey and sometimes sugar (I drink goats milk and it is sometimes quite bitter on its own). When I drink tea or coffee I add half-spoon sugar which I THINK is a mixture of sugar and sweetener but I'm not sure...I just know it has half the calories xD I don't tend to add sugar to much else, I have the same sugar as in my tea on top of my cereals and I like to cook my carrots in a mixture of butter and brown sugar, but that's just because I'm weird.

Usually regular white sugar, honey, brown sugar or cane sugar... it really depends on what I'm sweetening :B

I can't use artificial sweeteners though, I'm allergic to the aspartame in most of them, and I don't like the others :O

I can't use normal sugar because I have Insulin Resistance...And artificial sweeteners aren't something I actually like~
However, if I need something sweet, I can use Stevia and that's it <3

Depends on what I'm making. Lately I've been making my coffee with honey in it. However my oatmeal has white sugar in it. If I had brown sugar, I'd probably use it in coffee or oatmeal. I never use artificial sweeteners because I think they taste horrible. Also, my husband is allergic to splenda so that's automatically not used.

Es ist reine Gewohnheit, ungesüßte Getränke zu trinken und gesund noch dazu. :D
Bei sonstigen Lebensmittel nehme ich Zucker oder Honig, aber keine Chemie.

Probier mal Xylitol. Das schmeckt genauso süß wie Zucker, hat aber viel weniger Kalorien, füttert nicht unerwünschte Darmpilze und verursacht keine Karies.
