Sweeteners, substitutes for sugar
Replacing sugar by Stevia and erythritol is it good for health? Who of the glycemic index?
Stevia: Original to South America, stevia is a sweetener of natural origin containing zero calories and possessing a significant sweetening power. It is by extracting the leaves of the plant bearing the same name that the sweetener is manufactured. According to some American studies, glycosides present in stevia extract would contribute to the reduction of blood pressure, to the reduction of glucose absorption in the intestine thus promoting a decrease in blood sugar levels.
Erythritol: Natural sweetener that we find in fruits (such as melon, grapes, pear), fermented foods (miso) or soy sauce that produces a very low level of glucose in the blood with almost 0 calories (0.2 kcal/g against 4 for sugar).
- Health impacts:
Polyols = sweeteners used in the manufacture of this milk chocolate, (here Stevia and Erythritol), substitutes for sugar used in chocolate bars by the food industry. In addition, they do not induce an increase in blood sugar in case of diabetes, do not cause insulin spikes and are not responsible for the appearance of cavities.
- Low GI:
We clearly know today that the role of the glycemic index as a tool for comparing the different food products we consume is crucial.
In fact, the GI allows us to make a comparison of food products according to their ability to raise the blood sugar level. (= blood sugar). In fact, the higher the GI of a food, the more it raises blood sugar.
On the basis of 100 representing the highest GI, here are some examples of products and their associated GI:
White baguette = 95
White sandwich bread = 70
Whole bread = 71
White rusk = 68
Whole bread = 65
Chocolate powder (sweetened)= 60
Milk chocolate = 50
Thus, we can notice very distinctly that even wholemeal bread has a glycemic index above 55.
Milk chocolate thus has a GI of 50 but it should still be consumed in moderation if it is made with a large amount of carbohydrates.
The glycemic index (GI) can be classified as follows:
- High GI if > 70
- Moderate GI when it is between 56 and 69
- Low GI if < 55
