    Can you give me your sources on that? a lot of people here argue over this, just wandering were you get that from.

      sure sugar is ok in moderation if you don't care about the fact that glycation is killing us

        We're talking better vs. worse. Not nescesarilly good.

        He has decided to consume the syrup or other sweeteners anyway. If that's the case, I at least recommend that he stick to the least harmful ones possible.
        "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

          Don't get me wrong i like some honey or syrup, but it's not a regular thing in my diet, just the odd-time.

            I agree raw honey, backstrap molasses, and pure maple syrup would be the most natural. usually if I ever have some its some local raw honey

              So are you also concerned about the amount of age's in cooked meat?

                But to answer your question:
                1. You won't be using enough to get any significant nutrition out of it.
                2. If you can handle 4 g of sugar well hell just cut down on sugar somewhere else and call it a day. You don't need to ask permission from strangers on a website.
                3. Sounds like you've made up your mind anyway, so it's a moot point.
                Great post! That's what I was gonna write.

                  If the sweetener is for homemade ice cream, the "is it healthy?" ship has already sailed IMO... I'm thinking if you asked most people's opinion here it would be, don't make homemade ice cream. If you're looking for a little sugar, eat something whole like an apple, a couple pieces of diced pineapple...

                  To me, primal eating isn't "how can I take SAD recipes and change them to be grain-free?" but if that's what you're trying to do, go ahead. Just don't get mad at people for pointing out that the real problem with any sweetener is the insulin response it triggers.

                    How is exactly is cream, egg and vanilla unhealthy? i obviously don't add sugar to the ice-cream, if i did i sure wouldn't have bothered posting a thread asking for opinions on a sweetener if i consumed sugar like that. And re-creating SAD recipes with primal ingredients is a far better way of eating than sticking to meat and vegetables at every meal. It's fun and interesting to re-create your old favourite dishes with healthy ingredients.

                      I guess it's fine if you're still doing the cow's milk thing. The more I hear about dairy, the less I want anything to do with it. As long as you're using organic dairy products (still the issue that cows shouldn't be eating grains, even if they ARE certified organic) and organic cage-free eggs, I guess you could do a lot worse.

                        Does it have a decent taste? I never liked things sweetened with apple or pear juice. The combo sounds kind of gross.

                        I like maple syrup and how it enhances things.

                        I dunno, there is probably no nutritional advantage, so go by taste and leave it at that.

                            Rubbish. If you want to go around spreading irrational fear mongering about foods you should at least attempt to appear as though you don't have an agenda by dismissing anything that doesn't conform to what you want to believe.

                              So what do you suggest I start eating all my meat raw lol? And the triple PHD Dr. Greg Ellis says glycation in cooked meats is total mythology. He's studied the 7,000 published papers on glycation, have you?

                                Just a word of advice..... if you shape your diet around scientific studies, there will be exactly no foods you can eat that won't harm you in some way. Our bodies can deal with small amounts of toxins, maybe not the amount the SAD throws at it, but the occasional honey or odd concoction of fruit sugars is probably no worse than the toxins accumulated in the flesh of meats.
