Diets in Review Question

Can you recomend a reasonably good tasting, fair priced, lower glycemic sweetener that isn't poisonous trash?

I buy Agave from Costco because I was under the impression it would make a healthier lower glycemic sweetener for my coffee and cooking than sugar. Sucked into the hype, maybe?
My question is this: Is there a difference between types of fructose? Is there the bad "high fructose corn syrup" type product and other fructose products that are not so damaging? Or is a fructose a fructose a fructose? A 76 year old Type Two Diabetic wants to know...
I have been looking for a reasonably good tasting, fair priced, lower glycemic sweetener for a long time. Hate stevia! Tastes gross! I thought Splenda might be the answer for a while, but the Internet renegade Medicos slam it as poison, like most of the rest of the artificial sweeteners. Can you advise me before I croak on this trash?

fructose is fructose and it's highly concentrated type of sugar that is hard on the liver. coconut sugar is a bit lower on the glycemic index and tastes fine (i use it in my coffee and in baking). the best option, just cut back on sugar!
