Sugar is widely used in food. Most people like the taste of sugar very much. But for diabetics, they need healthy sweetness instead of sugar. What kinds of sweeteners are suitable for diabetics?
Research show that diabetics can use most artificial sweeteners including saccharin, aspartame, erythritol and sucralose.
Artificial sweeteners are also called sugar substitutes. They provide sweetness but contain no calories.
The sweetness of these sugars is several times or even dozens of times higher than that of ordinary sucrose. Using a small amount can make food reach a satisfactory sweetness. That is why foods produced with artificial sweeteners have fewer calories.
Artificial sweeteners will not affect blood sugar levels. In fact, most of these sweeteners can be considered free food because it contains no substances such as carbohydrates and fats.
Nowadays, some sweeteners, such as erythritol, stevia and sucralose are consider of natural and healthy sugar substitutes. They are widely used in foods.
