Sugar Free Diets
Sugar free diets have grown in popularity in recent times thanks in part to epidemics like childhood obesity but also because of greater research into the effects of high sugar diets on our health.
1 teaspoon of sugar contains approx 16 calories and 4 grams of carbohydrates. When you multiple this by the number of grams of sugar intake in your daily diet it can be very concerning.
Artifical sweeteners were all the range until a number of reported health scares caused consumers to turn against them and favour natural sweeteners like Stevia. Stevia has quickly become the world's most popular sugar alternative for a number of reasons.
- Unlike most natural sweeteners, Stevia doesn't contain Fructose which means it naturally has zero calories
- It maintains the benefits that natural sweeteners posses such as carotenoids, flavonoids, and other plant substances that have antioxidant properties
- Unlike other sweeteners Stevia offers these benefits and is great tasting
