New Food Line Is Sugar Alcohol–Free


Jun 1, 2006

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.

From Eat Well Be Well Foods, Inc.

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.”
