Erythritol - Naturally derived from Non-GMO Cane Sugar
Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that has been used as a food additive since the early 1800’s. Being 70% as sweet as pure cane sugar and remaining unrefined, Erythritol creates an advantage over pure cane sugar as it reduces the risks to your health. It is an all-natural, zero calorie refined sugar alternative that looks, feels, bakes and tastes just like sugar! Erythritol naturally occurs in many fruits and fermented foods and wines. It's made by mixing sugar with water and fermenting it with a natural culture. While its name may seem terribly scientific, erythritol is found in nature at low levels in grapes, melons and pears and can be found at higher levels in fermented products like wine. Each day, it is estimated that we consume somewhere between 30 and 100 mg of naturally occurring erythritol in our regular diets.
It's safe for all types of diabetics, doesn't affect insulin levels, helps prevent tooth decay, supports the immune system and it's heat stable for use in cooking. Erythritol does not cause undesired gastrointestinal effects when consumed in reasonable quantities. Compared to the other sweeteners classified as sugar alcohols, erythritol has the highest digestive tolerance.
It is FDA approved and GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) rated.
Agave Inulin – Organic Soluble Pre-Biotic Fiber
Inulin is a natural dietary fiber found in plants, which is also known as a fructan. Typically, the majority of plant species contain various amounts of inulin, with the Agave plant and Chicory root being the most commercially viable. The main source of inulin that is currently used today derives from the chicory root, containing approximately 15% inulin. However, the agave plant can contain up to 38% inulin. Organic Agave Inulin is extracted from the Tequilana Weber Agave plant. The end result of the inulin refining process yields a fine highly soluble powder with a neutral, clean, mildly sweet flavor.
Agave Inulin provides the body with natural remedies and dietary fibers to promote healthy weight loss and reduce high blood pressure. Studies have shown that it is very soluble in cold water and more commonly used in combination with cold beverages and shake supplements. This is because it contains higher amounts of calcium and minerals than other inulin supplements and is a prebiotic – adding to the beneficial nutrition. Since Agave Inulin ferment in the colon area of the body, it provides nutrition directly to the good bacteria present in the colon to increase digestive health.

Rebauddioside A - 99% Reb A Stevia Extract
Stevia is 100% natural and is derived from the leaf of a plant most commonly found in South America. It has zero calories and provides many healthful benefits. On December of 2008 the FDA declared stevia as safe for use in foods and beverages. The FDA approved stevia at a minimum of 95% Rebaudioside A (Reb A), which is the sweetest compound of the plant. There are seven compounds of the stevia plant. Reb A is the sweetest and purest part of the plant and is the least bitter of the other compounds therein. Reb A Stevia also derives from a natural plant source, the stevia plant.
Stevia leaves have been known to be used in medicines such as antibiotics, muscle relaxers and certain pain relievers as well. Reb A Stevia has been known to reduce the amount of uric acid levels in the body to provide a stable functionality of the digestive system and energy levels. Since it promotes healthy heart health, Reb A Stevia has been proven to increase and strengthen blood flow to the heart by strengthening the muscle contractions of the aorta. Although Reb A Stevia contains sweeteners, it is completely safe for diabetics.
