Wholesome! Zero is the perfect sweetener for those living a healthy lifestyle. Zero is solely erythritol, a naturally occurring sugar alcohol that is found in our bodies, as well as in fruits, vegetables and ever certain fermented foods like soy sauce. It is a perfect mild-tasting natural sweetener with Zero Calories. It has a glycemic index of zero, so it sweetens without adding calories or spiking blood sugar the way other sweeteners often do. Research indicates that for most people, it’s highly digestible! Zero is made from plants; it is perfect for vegetarians and vegans.
Using Zero in the Kitchen: We recommend using 1 1/2 cups of Zero to replace 1 cup of refined sugar. Try all of our delicious Zero erythritol recipes. For a more opulent sweetness, consider adding a bit of Wholesome! Fair Trade Organic Raw Blue or Blue Agave. It is a great sweetener for coffee and tea, sprinkled over fruit or cereal, or in sweet sauces–it takes its flavor a minute or two to “bloom.” Keep it in a favorite sugar bowl on the kitchen table – even in humid climates. It doesn’t absorb moisture from the atmosphere so it remains free flowing. (Note: the molecular structure of Zero prevents it from browning the way other sugars do.)
Zero is 70% as sweet as table sugar, and with zero calories and zero on the glycemic index, consumers can indulge with zero guilt.
