Refined sugar’s been getting a really bad reputation. While the human body requires a certain amount of fructose and glucose, refined sugar offers no nutritional benefit whatsoever. Instead of adding sugar to your morning tea or coffee, consider adding honey. Honey has higher levels of fructose than refined sugar making it taste sweeter. This means you can use less.
