So not all aminos reduce your brain to particulates. Rest assured.

The Romans used honey.  We need processed sugar for what?  Reelecting Marco Rubio?

That's a good point. I use honey and molasses exclusively in cooking now.

Stop using sugar for awhile, and when you go back and eat some, it tastes like poison.
Fortunately though, it soon gets to taste good again.
Maybe 'fortunately' isn't quite the right word, here.

Is it real sugar or corn-fructose?

Well I don't know. If it tastes sickly-sweet, I call it sugar. The stuff that's in almost everything you didn't make yourself.
If I do use sugar, deliberately, it's always either soft-brown, or demerara.
And lots of honey - the kind with royal jelly in it - :)

Both HFCS and white sugar are added to just about everything along with soy (though, I suspect there is less white cane sugar out there than most would admit) but I think it is interesting that real sugar, even sugar like demerara (careful of the fact that most "brown sugar" out there is white sugar with molasses added back in, demerara is the best choice) is "sickeningly" sweet to you. If you can work exclusively with demerara, I would. It has all the nutrients kept in it that you need to actually digest the sugar.
