Low-calorie sugar alternatives can negatively impact gut health

“It’s about more than just the number of calories in these ingredients,” ABC News Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton said Monday on “Good Morning America,” which described the study’s findings.

“Basically what they did was they looked at all these sugar substitutes, things like aspartame, saccharin, sucralose, stevia,” said Ashton, who wasn’t involved in the study. “Then they took some blood samples, they looked at indicators of gut microbiome, and what they found was that specifically saccharin and sucralose increased blood sugar, or ‘blood sugar’ levels, [og] stevia increased our insulin levels.”

She continued: “So the conclusion here is that these are not harmless or so-called ‘inert substances.‘ And again, it’s about more than whether they have calories like regular sugar or not.”

Why is JustSweet different?

JustSweet contains Stevia, so why is JustSweet different? JustSweet also contains a prebiotic dietary fiber that delays the absorption of food. This fiber is scientifically proven that, unlike all of the above sugar substitutes, it has a positive effect on the good and useful intestinal bacteria. In addition, the fiber we use has a health claim approved by EFSA (the EU’s approval body for food additives). One of the health claims we can allow ourselves to use (such should be pre-approved) is: “Has beneficial effects on blood sugar and blood insulin levels”.

We believe that JustSweet is the best alternative to sugar and that all other sweeteners, including sugar, do not apply to JustSweet*

If you consume large amounts, the water-soluble fiber used in JustSweet, a so-called resistant fiber, can cause a slight rise in blood sugar, but most of what you eat will do.
