Goodbye sugar, welcome natural sweeteners
Many today are concerned about their health and appearance, so they want to consume products that are as healthy as possible. There are also people who, because of their health condition, such as diabetes and high pressure problems, have to be careful about what they eat.
Gelati d’Oro ice creams are available to everyone who desires to enjoy sweet tastes without consequences: children, adults, diabetics, pregnant women, people who want to lose weight, people on anti-candida diet … literally everyone! The “guilt-free” label of our ice creams can be thanked to several reasons, one of them being the use of natural sweeteners made from birch trees and corncobs, namely xylitol and erythritol.
Xylitol is a sugar alcohol, naturally found in almost every vegetable and fruit. As for the taste and appearance, it’s almost identical to traditional sugar. Unlike many other sweeteners, it dissolves in water just like sugar. You may have already tried it because it can be found for example in sugar-free chewing gums and refreshing candies. It helps stabilize blood sugar levels and keeps them at low level, reducing the unnatural sense of hunger and craving for carbohydrates.
Erythritol is a natural sugar alcohol derived from corn. In small quantities, it can be found in mushrooms, pears, watermelons, grapes and fermented foods such as cheese, soy sauce and wine. The taste is chilling, with a sweetness of 60-80% compared to plain sugar. It has 0 calories and does not increase the level of blood sugar.
In addition, xylitol and erythritol enhance digestive processes and slow down caries, creating dental calculus and plaque. All this is more than enough reason to use these natural sugars in Gelati d’oro ice cream.
