Let’s all skream for Iskream!
Stevia is a natural, zero calorie sweetener made from the leaves of the stevia plant. It’s the perfect ingredient for shaking away added sugar without sacrificing flavor or sweetness. In fact, stevia is up to 300 times sweeter than sugar! It’s a safe sugar alternative for the entire family.
Sugar alcohols are reduced calorie sweeteners used in many sugar free and reduced-calorie foods. They also occur naturally in fruits, like grapes, melon and berries. Since they are not fully digested by the body, they have less of an impact on blood sugar levels than other types of carbohydrates. Erythritol, one type of sugar alcohol, is often used in foods to add texture and bulk. Sugar alcohols do not contain the type of alcohol found in alcoholic beverages.
Yes. Because stevia adds sweetness without extra calories and does not have a significant impact on blood sugar, it’s earned a reputation for being a safe sugar alternative for people with diabetes. Since the overall total carbohydrate content varies between Iskream’s flavors depending on ingredients like fruit and dark chocolate, it’s important to read the food label and follow recommended serving sizes. This will ensure that you can still enjoy Iskream while sticking to a carbohydrate-controlled eating plan!
