Ultimate Baker launches sugar substitute for diabetics
Ultimate baker recently launched a new range of Xylitol based sugar substitutes aimed at the diabetic market.
Xylitol is an FDA approved sugar substitute that has a very low glycemic index and does not spike blood sugar or insulin.
Ultimate Baker xylitol is made from 100 percent plant fiber and is designed specifically for use by diabetics. Xylitol is a natural occurring polyalcohol found in most plants, fruits, vegetables and hardwoods, and it almost perfectly mimics the natural sweetness of sugar, while having 40 percent fewer calories.
With the CDC estimating that over 100 million people now live with diabetes or prediabetes in the U.S. alone, development of safe, natural cake decorating alternatives is rapidly becoming crucial.
Sue-Ellen Cutler, vice-president of new product development at Ultimate Baker said: “Our goal is to create high quality products that are both visually appealing while free of the harmful synthetics and preservatives which are dominant across the baking industry.”
