Remember those sweets you miss and crave?
With Epic, you may have your cake and eat it, too. Xylitol is sugar free.
All our products are sweetened with 100% xylitol. Our friends with diabetes have repeatedly thanked us for finding them a wonderful replacement to sugar. In fact, one of our customers remarked that we spanked sugar and other sweeteners because we not only have 40% fewer calories than sugar but actually prove to be a healthy alternative.
Xylitol is only an 11 on the glycemic index* (because its unique molecular structure requires less insulin to process) and because xylitol also protects your teeth, you’ll be smiling all the way to the dentist as well as your doctor.
Sweet Alternatives for Diabetics
If you’re ready to learn to cook and bake with xylitol, know that it typically works as a 1:1 alternative to sugar, and it’s been proven to produce fewer GI side effects than other sugar alcohols.
Feel free to speak with a nutritionist or your doctor about Xylitol. We help play a small part in the healthy lifestyle of thousands of people just like you, and we’re confident your expert will agree. Doctors and dentists seem to like us very much. It’s probably because we’re not your average company.
Why not start with any or all of these little gems:
- Our 1 lb. bag or 5 lb. bag of all-natural sweetener to make your own treats
- The wonderful Cooking with Xylitol Cookbook to inspire you
- Sugar-Free Gum or Mints to freshen up after your indulgences
And, if you’re not ready - we always like to suggest digging around a bit. You can learn how others use Epic’s xylitol to create recipes and treats, or you might be interested in learning more about where xylitol comes from and the lengths to which we go to ensure its purity and quality.
If you have more questions, you’re also welcome to contact us whenever you wish. We’re here to help.
