However, natural sugar alternatives such as honey and syrups are only beneficial to our health in moderation: On the one hand, they often have the same calories as industrial sugar and therefore a lot of energy that heats up the metabolism and is stored in the body's fat reserves. On the other hand, their effect on caries bacteria is equivalent to sugar: by metabolizing sugar, certain bacteria in the mouth produce acid. This acid causes tooth enamel to soften and leads to cavities and receding gums: caries and periodontal disease develop. An effect that incurs cost and pain.
Better sugar alternatives would be, for example, erythritol and stevia
Sugar substitute that is already used in many foods and sweetening items. The vegetable sugar substitute stevia can score with an incredible sweetening power (rebausid = approx. 200x sweeter than sugar) - but for many people the taste of stevia is reminiscent of liquorice. The main problem with stevia: Although it comes from a natural source (leaves of the stevia plant), only the extract (highly purified rebaudioside A (Reb A)) is permitted. Stevia is therefore hardly natural and can be dosed very sensitively. Erythritol, on the other hand, has a neutral taste, no calories but lacks some sweetening power. Conclusion: Erythritol and stevia are tooth-friendly because they are calorie-free, but both are not yet the perfect sugar substitute that could replace sugar.
