Plant-based sweeteners may help individuals control their blood glucose levels

A new study shows that it is possible to reduce the level of sugar in muffins without affecting their textural properties by replacing half of the sugar content with stevianna or inulin, which are plant-based sweeteners. Also, after individuals consumed sugar-replaced muffins, their glycemic response — or the concentration of glucose in the blood — was lower than when they consumed regular muffins.
