However, there is good news you can use sugar substitutes and get a sweet taste in your drinks or foods without any side effects. One of the most popular alternatives to sugar from time immemorial is honey, which you can use in a variety of beverages without any side effects.

However, some experts say that because honey also contains 'fructose', it may be harmful as well, although, in some religious literature, some scientists have described honey as harmless in the body despite its sweetness.

Some scientists have suggested that the alternatives to sugar are 'Stevia' and 'Xylitol', which are derived from plants and leaves but have a sweeter taste than even sugar.
