Sugar is an essential ingredient in bread and cake baking on account of its component, carbohydrate. However its too much intake may cause problem especially for persons of sedentary lifestyle.
Is Sugar Really So Bad?
The Harmful Effects of Sugar and Choosing Healthy Alternatives
Most sugar comes from sugar cane which is NOT an healthy ingredient. 'Sugar is to be avoided'? Definitely!
* Sugar can decrease growth hormone (the key to staying youthful and lean)
* Sugar feeds cancer
Stevia and Xylitol, Artificial Sweeteners etc. are the substitute of sugar for sweetness but may not be suitable for bread/cake baking. Google didn't help me to find a sugar substitute which can be easily found on market at low cost, approx similar to sugar, for bread and cake baking, without causing health hazard.
Any suggestion/comment would be appreciated. TIA
