I accidentally stumbled upon this article/letter on the web today. Though it is from an agave manufacturer, I believe that not everything is always black or white. So in everything there is balance and the real driving key is the quantity of sugar — sugar in any form — that you ingest every day. I recommend that you mix it up.. some good raw agave, raw sugar, raw honey, stevia, and maybe even some xylitol if you are okay with sugar alcohols.
