All over the world there is an increasing tendency towards consuming natural products and thus living a more natural life. At the same time our lifestyles have changed so much over the last four to five decades that sweeteners (either high-calorie natural or processed sugars or high potency and low-calorie synthetic sweeteners such as aspartame) have become an integral part of our natural daily diet. Due largely to the sedentary lifestyles that we all tend to lead these days, the incidences of obesity and diabetes are increasing dramatically. In India, for example, the number of diabetics in the age group of 25-45 is now about 15 percent and is increasing at an alarming pace. The USA is the largest consumer of sugar in the world, which has contributed substantially to a dramatic increase in its diabetic population.
