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.
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.
