ABOUT LOVING SUGAR FREE
Hello and welcome to my Shop. First let me say that I love Xylitol and Xylitol products. When I first found out about Xylitol I was elated! It almost didn't seem possible that a healthy alternative to regular sugar was available and that I hadn't already heard about it .
|"When I tried Xylitol for the first time in my coffee I could not believe my taste buds."|
All of the Xylitol products I found in my local shops, which amounts to little more than chewing gum, contained aspartame. My local Health Food shop did not carry any Xylitol sweets but with all I had found out about its health benefits I knew I could not be alone in my search for products sweetened only with Xylitol.
That is when I decided to make healthy Xylitol sweetened products easy to find and be available at a price that gave the best possible value for money.
None of my Xylitol Products contain artificial sweeteners like aspartame.
I now supply Gum, Mints, Sours and Chocolate Bars sweetened only with Xylitol. I also supply Xylitol Crystals that can be used just like regular sugar.
The Products made from Xylitol sourced from Birch have been manufactured in an environmentally substainable way. The Plamil Chocolate & Carob Bars have no hidden ingredients and come from Plamil's longstanding company using 100% renewable power.
The Ricochet Xylitol Gum, manufactured by Emerald Forrest in the USA, can be used whenever you want the oral health benefits Xylitol provides. Chewing the gum for a few minutes, ideally after eating, insures proper Xylitol distibution. I have heard that in Finland there are schools where young children are given Xylitol sweetened gum after eating. They chew it for a few minutes and then the teacher has them dispose of it. Xylitol is popular in many countries and hopefully will become as popular here.
What has impressed me most of all about Xylitol is it's health giving qualities. Having 40% less calories than regular sugar it helps those counting calories without losing out on sweetness.
|"Until now I have avoided most sugar free products because they contain nasty artificial sweeteners like aspartame."|
Diabetic safe it has a low Glycemic Index of 7 which is very important to me as I find that if I stick to foods low on the Glycemic Index my mood is stable and my cravings for carbohydrates is diminished. It also helps prevent cavities which is a good thing because I hate going to the dentist for a filling (dosen't everyone).
I researched online and found a wealth of information and a great number of studies using Xylitol which found regular use of it was good for ear and upper respiratory infections, candida and bowel health. I read it even helps those with osteoporosis.
Until now I have avoided most sugar free products because they contain nasty artificial sweeteners like aspartame. Aspartame in particular had been wrecking havoc on my compromised immune system for many years until I reluctantly had to switch back to regular sugar. While regular sugar was certainly preferable to artificial sweetener it was not doing me any good. I was consuming large quanitities of sugar every day, in my coffee, my tea and so many baked goods. You might say I was addicted to sugar, always wanting to reach out for that donut or other sweet. My appetite increased and my weight escalated. I had to do something.
For me the internet proved to be a vast knowledge base where I set out to learn if indeed Xylitol was the answer to my sugar addition. I did not want to give up eating things that were sweet because I enjoy them so much and I think one should always be able to enjoy life.
When I tried Xylitol for the first time in my coffee I could not believe my taste buds. My coffee tasted just like it had regular sugar in it! In fact everything I used Xylitol as a sweetener for tasted like it was made with regular sugar.
|"I can finally say I have found a sweetener I can use GUILT FREE. One that is actually good for me."|
I was aware of the fact that one had to slowly increase the use of Xylitol over time in order to avoid any temporary laxative effect excess consumption could have but that was not a problem as my craving for something sweet diminished along with my use of Xylitol.
I am definitely leading a healthier lifestyle now since my cravings for loads of carbohydrates has diminished. In fact my appetite is smaller. My mood is more stable, no more of those highs and lows and my energy levels are constant thoughout the day. The knowledge that the sweetener I now use is actually good for me has led me to experiment with the Xylitol Crystals to make new, healthy and delicious recipes.
I am excited and happy to be able to offer these products to those looking to lead a healthier lifestyle. Please contact me if you know of a product you think I should also carry as I am on a constant look out for new lines.
I can finally say I have found a sweetener I can use GUILT FREE. One that is actually good for me. If you haven't tried it give it a go. You will be glad you did, and you will be Loving Sugar Free too!
