Exploring the best natural sweeteners to enhance your survival stockpile

The average prepper will likely have a decent supply of non-perishable ingredients and canned goods in their pantry.

But you also need to stock up on natural sugar alternatives so you can prepare various beverages and make sweet treats for your family. After all, a cookie is a nice treat, especially if you’ve been bugging in for a long time and canned food is all that you’ve been eating.

When buying natural sweetener alternatives, choose products that are shelf-stable since they are ideal for long-term storage. (h/t to FoodStorageMoms.com)

Agave syrup

Agave syrup is a great alternative to sugar, particularly if you have family members who are vegan or have gluten allergies.

Additionally, agave syrup is also a low-glycemic sweetener. This means it won’t cause your blood sugar levels to spike like table sugar and other sweeteners.

Agave syrup has a long shelf life and can last for several years if stored properly. Store agave syrup in an airtight container and keep it away from any heat sources.

Coconut sugar/coconut palm sugar

Coconut sugar or coconut palm sugar is a natural sugar made from coconut palm sap, a sugary liquid from the coconut plant.

Its color is similar to that of raw cane sugar, but the particle size of coconut palm sugar is usually smaller or more variable.

Regular table sugar and high fructose corn syrup don’t contain any vital nutrients and only offer “empty” calories.

However, coconut palm sugar retains trace nutrients found in the coconut palm. The most notable of these are the minerals calcium, iron, potassium and zinc, along with phytonutrients such as polyphenols and antioxidants.

Honey

Honey is probably one of the best sweeteners for your prepper stockpile because it will last indefinitely if stored properly. To make honey last long in your stockpile, store it in an airtight container and away from any heat sources.

If some of the honey in your stockpile is starting to crystalize, that doesn’t mean that it’s gone bad. To use the crystalized honey, place the container in a pot of warm water and stir the water until the honey becomes liquid again.

Note that raw honey is considered the healthiest type of honey that offers the most health benefits for you and your family.

Stevia

Stevia is derived from the stevia plant. It is considered to be a natural alternative to sugar and it has a very long shelf life.

When stored properly, stevia can last for many years. (Related: Food supply tips: 13 Natural sweeteners you can grow in your home garden.)

Stevia is often used in baking or as a sweetener for coffee and tea. Like agave syrup, stevia is also a low-glycemic sweetener so it won’t cause your blood sugar levels to spike.
