Our favourite recipes without added sugar

Chocolate, ice cream, fruit gums, biscuits... sugar is omnipresent and has always been part of our diet. It not only sweetens many dishes, but also serves as essential nerve food from time to time.

But it is not only about sweet happiness: sugar in large quantities and especially in its industrial form as refined sugar is not good for us. The studies that consider sugar to be critical and blame it for a variety of health problems are becoming more and more numerous. In addition to the actual sweets, a great many come across as "hidden sugar bombs": dressings, dips, rolls, ready meals and much more often contain much more refined sugar than we consumers are aware of. And so it happens that many of us eat significantly more sugar than we should - and want to!

Low Sugar – How does that work?

More and more health-conscious people are trying to declare war on sugar. They almost completely eliminate it from their diet and often report that they feel less listless and more active. This usually involves avoiding crystal sugar (white, industrially produced sugar) and switching to other, more natural "sweeteners", as well as preparing hearty meals freshly to avoid sugar traps.

Natural sweetening alternatives are: honey, agave syrup, fresh fruit - but also dried fruit. Dried fruits not only sweeten great, but are also a great source of fibre!

If you want to eat sugar-free in your everyday life, it takes a little more time and preparation. Inform yourself, read the lists of ingredients in the supermarket very carefully!

And prepare your meals more yourself. You can also make great snacks with our 3Bears Porridge varieties and it goes without saying that all our varieties are completely sugar-free.

Here we have collected our best recipes without added sugar - from porridge to snacks and healthy baking recipes.
