What are sweeteners?
A sweetener is any chemical substance that is capable of making a food or meal sweet, without ruining the one from the product itself.
Including these products in our daily diet in order to totally or partially replace sugar contributes to weight control by eliminating the calories of the first product.
The sweeteners can be found in different formats::
Suggestions when taking Sweeteners
Specialists agree that the intake of sugar in current diets is much higher than necessary in almost all cases, so the use of sweeteners and foods with sweetener, the so-called 'light' products, is the best recommendation for weight control.
The advice, therefore, is not to rely more on sweeteners, but always use them moderately to enjoy their benefits.
There is also the case of people with chronic diabetes, who cannot metabolize sugar naturally and properly and who generally benefit from the use of sweeteners instead of giving up natural sweetness.
Sweetener for pregnant women, are they good?
Much has been said about not consuming sweeteners during pregnancy. It is true that some sweeteners, whether natural or artificial, do not provide what is necessary for pregnant women.
But others such as the sucralose by FoodSeries are beneficial since they have no effect on blood sugar and are considered safe during pregnancy.
