Natural alternative to sugar

Zylosweet contains the natural alternative to sugar, Xylitol.  It tastes like sugar but has 40% fewer calories (one teaspoon supplies 9.6 calories), so it’s ideal as part of a weight management programme. Used to sweeten drinks, desserts and cooking, ZyloSweet has a low glycaemic index (GI) so it has minimal impact on blood glucose levels. Xylitol can safely be used by diabetics. It may also help maintain teeth free of decay. When first using ZyloSweet, increase your daily intake gradually until your body has adjusted. Large quantities of Xylitol may have a laxative effect, so build up slowly.

  • Contains Xylitol which tastes just like sugar but has 40% fewer calories
  • Ideal as part of a weight management programme
  • Use in exactly the same way as sugar and is perfect for making jam
  • Minimal impact on blood sugar, therefore ideal for those monitoring blood sugar levels

Why is this a superfood? Because it provides a healthy alternative to sugar and is useful as part of a weight management plan

Since ZyloSweet inhibits yeast, it cannot be used to raise yeast in baking. It is also not suitable for making meringues.

Do not feed xylitol to dogs; if consumed, seek veterinary advice.

    Great sugar substitute

    By Ms A - 27 February 2017

    Finally made the switch to using a sugar substitute after my dentist recommended it. This one is by far the best I've found, once you get used to the taste, it's great in hot drinks or even sprinkled on food!

    Cannot do without sugar in tea and need to lose weight, so in order to help me on both fronts, I gave this a try. It is excellent in baking as well as in drinks Unlike oversweet stevia, it does not taste of anything other than normal sugar, which means you can have your cake, and eat it.

    The Product is Quite Elite!

    It's not very far off from normal sugar if off at all. I think it's a matter of getting used too it at first it was like hmm this is different but then at times it tasted just like sugar so it's kinda hard where to place it. But it defiantly tastes closed to sugar as alternative I've ever known. I'm just about to buy it for the second time as I write this.

    Love this

    This product is ideal for me as ordinary sugar is a no no for as I have a yeast intolerance, so I find this substitute enables me to still sweeten my food and drinks, very pleased with it.
