What is the best sugar substitute these days?

When it comes to alternatives to sugar I must admit I have come a little late to the party.   I just don't use sweeteners in my house as a rule.  Sugar is not my thing.  I am German mostly and I love fats and salts.  Never met a sausage or salami I didn't like or potato chips either. Those are my issues to stay away from.

But a few years ago I did research on a new sugar that lowers tooth decay and even helps remineralize your teeth.   I have been using a tooth paste with this sugar ever since.   The sugar is called Xylitol.

Now recent research suggests that it has many health benefits and perhaps is the best choice for most of you as an alternative to table sugar or honey.  

Also hearing great things about Coconut Palm Sugar, but haven't tried it yet.

Here are some links to look at for your own research:

They have told you sugar is bad, but surprise
