We love sugar... and we love the things that sugar makes taste really good; like cookies, cakes, candy, ice cream, and sodas. Not only does sugar taste good, it makes us momentarily feel good. Over the last 30 years, our consumption of high-fructose corn syrup (fructose is a sugar that occurs naturally in fruit) has increased from .5 lb/person yearly to over 60 lb/person yearly! Our passion for sugar continues to create numerous health-related problems for our society that will soon reach epidemic proportions. Sugar wreaks havoc with our insulin levels, which causes impaired glucose uptake, reduced insulin signaling, and insulin resistance. This more often than not leads to dangerously high levels of blood glucose and potentially deleterious insulin-related disorders. Sugar is also doing something else that goes hand-in-hand with these insulin-related issues. It's making all of us, including our children, really fat.
Naturally Sweet™ is a Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Weight Control & Energy and Health & Wellness product designed to augment Hi-Tech's arsenal of weight control products by providing an escape plan from sugar and artificial sweeteners, such as aspartame, that come with a nasty aftertaste and a long trail behind them of questionable health and safety concerns. Naturally Sweet™ is an absolutely delicious, zero-calorie sweetener made from a proprietary blend of naturally-occurring sugars. Naturally Sweet™ has been called the "Sugar Imposter" or "Sugar Clone" because it tastes like sugar and also bakes and cooks just like sugar. Naturally Sweet™ is a natural sweetener that is perfect for coffee, tea, and other beverages that are normally sweetened with sugar or artificial sweeteners. Naturally Sweet™ can also be used in place of sugar when baking, which results in delicious, reduced calorie desserts and other baked goods. Naturally Sweet™ looks, feels, and tastes just like sugar, but that's where the similarities end.
Naturally Sweet™ is made from a blend of four naturally-occurring sugars and one sugar derivative whose metabolic profiles yield substantial sweetness with virtually no caloric impact. Naturally Sweet™ contains (1) Erythritol, which is a naturally-occurring sugar found in melon, grapes, mushrooms, soy, and wine, and is processed through a natural fermentation process; (2) Maltitol, which is a sugar alcohol used as a sugar substitute because of its nearly identical properties to sugar, except maltitol has fewer calories; (3) Maltodextrin, which is used as a bulking agent in foods, is a complex sugar molecule that demonstrates a much slower release into the bloodstream; (4) Xylitol, which is also a naturally-occurring sugar found in many fruits and vegetables, has the same sweetness and bulk as sucrose, but with one-third fewer calories, has no unpleasant aftertaste, and helps to reduce sugar and carbohydrate cravings; and (5) Sucralose, which is derived by tweaking the sugar molecule through a multi-step manufacturing process that produces a sweetener with no calories, yet is 600 times sweeter than sucrose. Naturally Sweet™ is made with a trace amount of sucralose for an enhanced sweetening effect, but since less than 1% of Naturally Sweet™ is made from sucralose and the remaining ingredients in Naturally Sweet™ are naturally-occurring sugars, Naturally Sweet™ meets the FDA's definition for "natural" versus "artificial."
Naturally Sweet™ is the easy alternative to sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, and artificial sweeteners that are of major health concerns today. Naturally Sweet™ is the ideal zero-calorie sweetener that gives you the taste of sugar with no compromises!
