    Email Pin It

Diet sugar and diet foods are a part of every household today. These foods contain artificial sweeteners or low calorie sweeteners. They give you the satisfaction of eating a sugary treat, but without the calories. Diet sugar may be the key to satiate those sugar cravings, but are they good for your health? Artificial sweeteners contain a variety of chemicals. Long term consumption of these might cause health side effects.

There are various types of artificial sweeteners. The most commonly used ones being Aspartame, Saccharin and Sucralose. Stevia is a natural low calorie sweetener which is slowly gaining popularity. But which is the healthiest artificial sweetener?

    I work for Zsweet, another natural sugar substitute. While stevia is great, some people don’t like the bitter aftertaste, and they want something that tastes more like sugar but is still zero calories and totally natural. Zsweet is another option that has actually been endorsed by Dr.’s Andrew Weil, Nicholas Perricone and Julian Whitaker.

    Just thought you might like to research it for your readers.

    We are all challenged by what to do about our sugar addiction. Sugar substitutes are generally not a good way to go as they keep you craving that too-sweet taste.

    I do like Stevia, but it remains to be seen if it is really safe (since Coke and Pepsi will be making products of a concentrated form of Stevia, we will see).

    Hi Fitho! I will post a reply here and on your site.

    ZSweet is a safe natural sweetener. It is produced using only natural ingredients by a natural process, fermentation; picture making wine.

    The goal of ZSweet was to create an alternative to sugar and artificial sugar substitutes that people could enjoy without the worries.

    ZSweet is zero calories, zero net carbs, zero glycemic impact, gluten-free, vegan, and kosher. You can read more at my blog:http://zsweetallnaturalsweetener.blogspot.com.

    Zsweet is available at Whole Foods and other natural food stores nationwide.

    We’ve been around awhile, and I’ve personally flown all over the country informing thousands of people on the health benefits of ZSweet. Until recently people were convinced Splenda was all natural. Now Truvia has come out and perhaps with their marketing power erythritol will become a household word.

    Erythritol is definitely a powerful tool in breaking sugar addiction and aiding people like myself and others who have sugar-related health issues.

    Thanks for your question!
