Thanks. For me, GMOs are a BIG concern. I avoid whenever possible, and beet sugar is almost all GMO. I do not cook with refined white sugar, but un- or minimally processed cane sugar (turbinado, sucanat, etc), and try to limit the items I purchase to those with cane sugar. Thankfully my "beloved" Endangered Species 88% cacao bars are now sweetened w/ cane, not beets. I stopped buying them for a while b/c of this. I would like to know if there is a rule of thumb for substituting honey (or, I assume agave syrup) for sugar.
