Food editor’s note: Although the products from Eat Well Be Well contain whole grains and no sugar alcohols, they also contain artificial sweeteners including sucralose (Splenda) and acesulfame-k (Sunette, Sweet One). And similar to aspartame (NutraSweet, Equal), the safety of acesulfame-k has been questioned by health professionals including the Center for Science in the Public Interest. To learn more, see the CSPI Web site at www.cspinet.org.
If you’ve ever tried a sugar-free food product but didn’t care for the sugar alcohols, Eat Well Be Well Foods, Inc., of Hood River, Oregon, has a suggestion for you.
Contending that most reduced-sugar products currently on the market are “little or no better” than their sugar-laden counterparts, Eat Well Be Well Foods developed its line of products, which are sugar-free, containing no sugar alcohols.
“Products containing sugar alcohols can have a negative effect on blood sugar and commonly cause gastric discomfort,” according to Eat Well Be Well Foods. “Sweet, sugar-free foods that are genuinely beneficial to diabetics contain slow-burning, complex carbohydrates and are free of sugar alcohols and refined carbohydrates.”
