    Thanks everyone, I will check out the local co-op for it. And one of my daughters has a chemist friend she will ask about splenda for me. When I told her about the side affects in mice she wasn't all that happy either. Talk to you more when she gives me some more info.

    I 'm with ya cant stand artifical sugar and have heard bad things about it. Some are even banned in Canada. So I use Stevia.

    I use brown sugar in place of white sugar in everything. I try to find raw honey for tea and I use about a tsp. It's not super sweet, just enough. I have also heard that for honey, the darker the honey the more nutrients in it, but it's really trace amounts, so I don't worry too much. You can also use maple syrup in place of sugar in recipes. I've been subbing it cup for cup, but it's trickier, since it can change the texture.

    I am pretty sure that brown sugar is just white sugar mixed with molasses.

    Try Honey instead, I believe it has more health benefits than refined sugar.
