Xylitol: a 'Better for you' Sugar Replacement

Xylitol: a 'Better for you' Sugar Replacement

Xylitol is also known as birch sugar, because it was first extracted from birch trees around 1890.  Xylitol looks like sugar, tastes like sugar and functions like sugar, but offers huge benefits:

* It contains 40% fewer calories than sugar

* The glycemic index is 80-90 % lower than that of sugar, so much less impact on your blood sugar level and a much lower risk on developing diabetes

* Consumption of Xylitol instead of sugar helps to prevent tooth plaque and caries

SweetLife Xylitol is the ideal 1:1 replacement for crystal sugar in baking, toppings and drinks. It's available in a 500g bag that makes the sugar jar in your cupboard completely redundant.

St. John's Bread Syrup

St. John's Bread Syrup

SweetLife has developed a sweet St. John’s Bread Syrup (a.k.a. Carob Syrup) that offers great benefits in comparison to sugar or honey:

Better for you

* The glycemic index is around 35% lower than sugar and about 20% lower than honey

* It has about 25% fewer calories than sugar and 10% fewer than honey

* St. John’s bread syrup is a source of nutritional fibre with 5 % fibre by weight as opposed to sugar or honey


* The syrup is naturally produced from the fruits of the St John’s bread tree

* It’s vegan (as opposed to honey)

Great taste

SweetLife St. John’s Bread Syrup has a truly exquisite taste
