Bye-Bye, Sugar! Make Room in Your Pantry for These Organic Sweeteners

The alternative sweeteners space can be confusing, but it stems from a very clear problem: many of us eat way too much refined sugar. So what’s the best option if you’re trying to ditch the stuff for good? Unfortunately, there isn’t a simple answer. But Thrive Market’s line of ethically sourced, top-quality sweeteners has a great choice for just about everyone. So whether you’re looking for something that’s low-glycemic, vegan, or simply delivers some added nutrients that refined sugar lacks, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’ll walk you through each of our sweeteners, highlighting some of the benefits of each to help you find the right one for you!

Organic Coconut Nectar

Made from the sap of coconut palm trees, Thrive Market’s Organic Coconut Nectar has a texture that’s similar to maple syrup but with earthy notes that lend a subtle touch of sweetness to smoothies, teas, and desserts. While it’s lower on the glycemic index than refined sugar and contains more nutrients, it should still be enjoyed in moderation. In addition to being ethically sourced, it’s organic, vegan, Paleo-friendly, unfiltered, and raw.

Organic Coconut Sugar

Like coconut nectar, Thrive Market’s Organic Coconut Sugar is made from the sap of coconut palm trees but comes in a granular crystals that taste like a cross between brown and raw sugar. The similarity in texture make an easy lower-glycemic swap for refined sugar in recipes. In addition to being organic, gluten-free, Paleo, vegan, and ethically-sourced, it also contains nutrients that you won’t find in refined sugar.

Organic Grade A Maple Syrup

Thrive Market’s Grade A Organic Maple Syrup is as natural as syrup comes—straight from the wild maples of Vermont. It contains nutrients like manganese, riboflavin, and zinc, plus it’s a little less caloric than honey, and lower on the glycemic scale than refined sugar. Whether you opt for the squeeze bottle or jug, both are perfect for drizzling over pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, or yogurt.

Organic Honey

This widely available sugar alternative melts nicely into hot beverages, adds decadent sweetness to baked goods, and can be whisked into homemade salad dressings, sauces, and marinades. The Thrive Market Organic Honey Bear is super cute and perfectly squeezable—plus BPA-free and recyclable.

Organic, Raw Unstrained Honey

A natural source of antioxidants and phytonutrients, Thrive Market’s Organic, Raw, Unstrained Honey is unpasteurized and raw so it retains enzymes and nutrients that make it a functional food. It’s organic, Paleo, and contains no added sugar. Check out some of our favorite ways to use this versatile ingredient!

Organic Stevia

This calorie- and sugar-free and low-glycemic sweetener is perfect for those monitoring calorie intake. While some stevia products have a bitter aftertaste, Thrive Market’s Organic Stevia uses an extract that has been uniquely formulated to maximize its sweet flavor. Our non-GMO, plant-based powder comes in individually wrapped packets that are great for traveling. And it’s gluten-free and vegan, too.
