Why Do We Use Cane Sugar in Svetia® Calorie – Free Sweetener?
San Antonio, TX. Svetia® Calorie -Free Sweetener is a non-calorie sweetener of natural origin, made with cane sugar and Reb A (97% purity), the best tasting part of the stevia leaf. Svetia® is the best-tasting option among stevia extract sweeteners; it does not contain calories or artificial ingredients.
Non-caloric sweeteners are also known as high intensity sweeteners, because they sweeten more than cane sugar, they are consumed in small quantities and they make it possible to produce or consume foods with less caloric input.
All sweeteners without calories now in the market have two main components:
1) The high intensity sweetener which is present to a lesser extent because of its high sweetening power (at least 200 times sweeter than sugar).
2) A bulking agent or “carrier” which, as its name implies, allows a product of suitable size and flavor to the consumer. The most used ones are: sugar, dextrose (glucose), maltodextrins (which are converted to glucose) and polyols (isomalt, erythritol).
The high intensity sweetener in Svetia® Calorie -Free Sweetener is Reb A, obtained from the stevia leaf, which can be anywhere from 200 to 350 times sweeter than sugar – but all without calories.
Svetia® uses cane sugar as a bulking agent or carrier because of its natural origin and because its glycemic index is lower than the one of dextrose and maltodextrin, providing an excellent profile of flavor and natural sweetness. Cane sugar as bulking agent provides so few calories per serving that Svetia® Calorie -Free Sweetener meets the Food and Drug Administration’s criteria for no-calorie foods (less than 5 calories per serving).
Each packet of Svetia® has 1 gram (0% of the Daily Value) of carbohydrates and only 4 calories per packet, which the FDA considers dietetically zero calories per serving, so that Svetia® Calorie -Free Sweetener can claim to be a calorie-free sweetener. People with diabetes are advised to check with their registered dietitian or physician if the consumption of Svetia® Calorie -Free Sweetener is recommendable for them.
