What is cyclamate?
Cyclamate was discovered in 1937 and has been used safely by people ever since. It is 30 – 50 times sweeter than sugar.
What is dextrose?
Dextrose is a natural carbohydrate derived from corn. Many sugar substitutes in powdered form contain dextrose. Dextrose (or another carrier) is used to dilute the very potent sweeteners to make it measurable for consumers.
Is EZE-Sweet safe to use for people, on diets and with diabetes?
It can easily be incorporated into the diets of people. It may also be used in conjunction with food programs for people with diabetes, as well as with guidelines, for people with diabetes, who use carbohydrate counting. People with diabetes are advised to check with their registered dietician or physician.
What is the Glycemic Index (GI) value of EZE-Sweet?
Glycemic Index (GI) is a measure of how fast carbohydrate foods are metabolized into glucose and thus affect the blood sugar levels. Most sugar substitutes contain a very small amount of carbohydrates and are not classified as foods. Assigning a GI value to a sugar substitute is not a proper use of the GI concept. The Glycemic Load (GL) is a more appropriate concept for sugar substitutes.
What is Glycemic Load (GL) and how does it relate to a sugar substitute like EZE-Sweet?
Glycemic Load (GL) refers to the impact that a food’s carbohydrate content has on the level of glucose in the body, taking into account the type and amount of carbohydrate consumed. Using EZE-Sweet in place of sugar can help to reduce the Glycemic Load (GL) of the foods you consume.
