How Sucralose helps in the Sugar Free Lifestyle
Tastes Like Sugar
Sucralose tastes like sugar and has no unpleasant aftertaste. Independing research groups have tested it in scientific taste tests and sucralose was found to have a taste very much like sugar.
Stable in high temps
Sucralose is heat stable, and OK for use in baking, canning and other manufacturing processes that require high temperatures. In tests, no measurable loss of sucralose occurred during processing and among a range of baked goods, canned fruits, syrups, and jams and jellies.
Helps control calories
Probably the biggest benefit is that since Sucralose is not metabolized for energy, it has no calories. It passes rapidly through the body virtually unchanged. As a result, it is unaffected by the body's digestion, and does not accumulate. Using sucralose instead of sugar in foods and beverages reduces and practically eliminates calories in many products.
Acceptable for Diabetes Diet
Since Sucralose is not recognized as sugar or a carbohydrate by the body, it has no effect on glucose utilisation, carbohydrate metabolism, the secretion of insulin, or glucose and fructose absorption. Studies of persons with normal blood glucose levels and those with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes confirmed that sucralose has no effect on short or long-term blood glucose control.
Better for your teeth
Studies indicate that sucralose does not support the growth of oral bacteria and does not promote tooth decay.
Lasts a long time on the shelf
Sucralose combines sugar-like taste with the heat, liquid and storage stability for use in all types of foods and beverages. It is stable in carbonated soft drinks and in other beverages. Sucralose is also stable in hot beverage mixes, instant desserts, and tabletop sweeteners.
