Which Sugar Replacements are Safe?

We're here to help!

When trying to live a healthier life, omitting sugar from your diet seems like an obvious place to start. We’ve already given you a list of different names for sugar so you can avoid it, but how do you know what substitutes are safe for your body? Thankfully, most are significantly safer than sugar!

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.)
