      Vanilla Date Paste is a great whole foods sweetener and substitute for sugar. There is no such thing as healthy artificial sweeteners. However, we can go to nature and find other alternative sweeteners that are whole food sweeteners like dates. The best substitute for sugar is anything that has not been processed and not made of chemicals. Dates are full of fiber and help the body slow down the way it digests the natural sugars.
