Over the centuries, various foods, like honey or sugar, have been used to sweeten our food. Today, many of us choose to use sweeteners as an alternative to sugar.

Sweeteners can play a role in contributing to the healthfulness of a diet without having to sacrifice the pleasure of eating sweet foods.
