Which one are we supposed to use?
Here are some facts:
Here’s the big picture when it comes to sugar. The sugar you add to your own diet is not a big deal (like in your tea or to your plain oatmeal). That is not the problem.
The sugar that we consume from products made by corporations is the big problem. Like soda, chicken nuggets, low-fat yogurt, bbq sauce, ketchup, granola, spaghetti sauce, ice cream, flavored coffee, etc… they’re all loaded with sugar.
So when it comes to using sugar in everyday life I use unrefined sugars like honey and maple syrup. I will use applesauce, bananas and dates for sweetening baked goods.
And I even use refined sugars like organic cane sugar, coconut sugar or monk fruit. They are fine in moderation.
I think the point is to eliminate sugar from processed foods. Avoid processed foods! Try to make your food at home and use unrefined sugars as much as possible.
