The carbohydrates contained in DatiSweet have extremely low glycemic levels, allowing it to have a strong sweet taste without all the disadvantages of white sugar and the diseases that can result from it.
In recent years, manufacturers have used in abundance the sweetening powers in granules, or corn syrup. These substances have serious consequences on the blood sugar level. They require much more pancreas work, and can create insulin deficiency problems in some people.
We then see more and more people with Type 2 diabetes, overweight, people with high levels of triglycerides and cholesterol.
As a general rule, 50g of DatiSweet replaces 100g of table sugar.

Do you cringe when you hear the word fructose? Fructose has received a bad reputation recently due to media and its association with the term “high fructose corn syrup”. Fructose is blamed for obesity, diabetes and other health concerns, but does fructose really cause these problems?
While it is easy to blame one food ingredient over another for health problems, it truly comes down to balance on our plates and our cups. So let’s break down the facts on this misunderstood sugar and double check our perception of sugar.
Fructose is a naturally occurring sugar found in fruits, some vegetables, honey, sugar cane and sugar beets.
Regardless of whether you consume fructose in fruits, honey or table sugar form, the number of calories is the same. Fructose has the same amount of calories per gram (4 kcal/gram), just like any other sugars. This means that regardless of the way you consume this sugar, your body is gaining the same amount of energy. What is important to understand is that fructose is sweeter than other sugars so you may be able to use less of it to achieve the same amount of sweet taste.
Fructose has been dubbed by some as “unsafe”. Now that more research is being made, The Food and Drug Administration has listed fructose as “generally recognized as safe” since research has shown that consuming fructose does not cause adverse effects, particularly when the same amount of calories are consumed.
While fructose is considered safe and has some benefits, moderation is key. The American Heart Association recommends 100 calories or less from sugar each day for women, and 150 calories or less from sugar each day for men. And the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans, released in 2015, recommend no more than 10 percent of daily total calories should come from sugar.
