What is Lite & Sweet?
Lite & Sweet is a blend of Erythritol & Xylitol – natural sweeteners derived from plant sources. Erythritol & Xylitol are similar in taste to regular sugar, but with a significant difference –Erythritol has zero calories and a virtually zero glycemic index while Xylitol has 40% fewer calories than sugar and a glycemic index of seven. Both sweeteners have a natural, cooling and moisturizing effect. The combination of the two sweeteners makes for a great tasting, low calorie, low glycemic sweetener that everyone can enjoy.
A delicious, low-calorie sweetener: Lite & Sweet is an excellent choice for those individuals looking for a natural sweetener with excellent health benefits that compares in taste to regular table sugar. Lite & Sweet is approximately 85% as sweet as table sugar and is an ideal alternative sweetener in foods prepared for weight loss or for anyone concerned about the overuse of sugar in their diet. Lite & Sweet’s low calorie characteristics are only the beginning of its nutritional benefits.
Low Glycemic Index: Lite & Sweet can be substituted for most common sweeteners without compromising taste or texture. Unlike so many other sugar alternatives, Lite & Sweet does not have any aftertaste and it is metabolized without insulin, so it creates a significantly lower glycemic effect when eaten. Regular sugar has a glycemic index score of 85 to 100 compared to Lite&Sweet’s glycemic index of 3. This is great news for anyone who has to control their sugar consumption and choose foods low in glycemic effects.
Health Benefits: Studies have found that the sweeteners blended in Lite & Sweet are easier on the digestive system than other sweeteners. Lite & Sweet may help reduce the risk of dental caries.
When cooking, replace sugar with Lite & Sweet in equal measurements. Lite & Sweet is heat-stable for cooking and baking. It also mixes and dissolves just like common sugar.*
