With more people taking a deeper interest in their diets, natural sweeteners have gained in popularity. Especially for people following Paleo or ketogenic diets, very few options are available to add sweetness without accompanying carbohydrates. There are a lot of sugar substitutes available, but not all of them have positive effects on health when taken in large quantities.
The natural sweeteners offered by LiveHelfi are made from sugar alcohols like erythritol and xylitol. These healthy sweeteners are found in nature, are made with non-GMO ingredients, often have a comparable sweetness to table sugar and increase blood glucose levels less when consumed compared to table sugar. This is one of the reasons why these natural sweeteners are suitable for people who wish to keep their blood glucose levels low. These natural sweeteners can also be used to sweeten beverages, desserts, and pastries.
Sugar substitutes like xylitol and erythritol can have laxative effects when the body is unaccustomed to their consumption. It is therefore important to slowly raise the consumption of these sweeteners!
