Americans (kids included) consume staggering amounts of refined sugar every year. And since it sometimes seems like it's everywhere and in everything, it’s easy to forget that eschewing refined sugar doesn’t mean depriving your sweet tooth.

These sugar alternatives should be consumed in moderation as well, but they will hopefully bring some more wholesome sweetness into your life! Read on for sugar alternatives including agave, brown rice syrup and maple sugar.
