Keep reading to see what ones we think earn the top spots! 

Top 5 Sugar Replacements

1. Stevia

  • Contains zero calories due to the way your body metabolizes the sweetener
  • Raw leaves of stevia plant are approximately 40 times sweeter than sugar, while the powdered sweetener is up to 200-300 times sweeter

    2. Erythritol

    • Contains 0.25 calories per gram and does not spike blood sugar or insulin levels
    • It has 70% of the sweetness that sugar has.

    3. Sucralose

    • Contains zero calories, and is 400-700 times sweeter than sugar.
    • Has no effect on short or long term blood glucose control. 

    4. Yacon Syrup

    • Contains 1.33 calories per gram.
    • Effective against constipation.

      5. Xylitol

      • Contains 2.4 calories per gram.
      • Can reduce cavities and tooth decay by 30-85%.
      • Toxic for dogs, use caution. 

      In conclusion

      All we want is for our Nutrafam to have a safe, healthy life. That is why each one of our delicious flavours of Nutralean are sweetened with stevia (with the exception of our unsweetened Natural.)
