Unrefined | Why We Opt for Natural Sweeteners Over Refined

November 17, 2017

 

There's no denying that sugar in excess is not healthy, however smaller amounts of natural sugars such as pure maple, local raw honey and dates offer excellent health benefits, especially when compared refined sugars. 

 

So what makes them healthier? Here are the health benefits of the 3 natural sweeteners we use in our Mylks:

 

PURE MAPLE SYRUP

Not only does maple syrup taste amazing, this natural sweetener is high in antioxidants, helps with inflammation. helps protect skin health and offers vitamins and trace minerals such as zinc, manganese, potassium and calcium. 

 

LOCAL RAW HONEY

When sourced ethically, we love honey! It is an excellent natural way to relieve allergies, chalked full of antioxidants, which fight off free-radicals and boost your immune system, as well as assist in fighting off diseases. For example, honey contains polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidants that have been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer.

 

Honey also promotes sleep by fostering the release of melatonin, which stimulates the release of tryptophan. Melatonin can also boost immunity and repair tissue during times of rest.  

 

DATES

Packed full of vitamins, trace minerals and fibre, we love using dates in our Mylks! Dates have been known to help combat high cholesterol, aid in digestions, particularly with people suffering from constipation and can boost bone health through key nutrients found in dates such as calcium and phosphorus. 

 

We love the hint of sweetness these natural foods bring to our fresh Nut Mylks!
