With the desire to stay fit and ensure a healthy lifestyle there has been an inclination towards choosing food that is low in calories. In today’s time, when most people are consciously putting an effort to try and remain fit, it is very important to consume food smartly.
Often we find that whenever we talk about a meal, we inevitably try to assess how much weight would we put on after consuming it. Most people who consult me are often concerned about their weight management and one of the most effective ways to treat this issue is by addressing the sugar element. People are conscious of consuming oily and fattening food items but forget about sugar, which constitutes a major part of their daily calorie intake.
Making the move from sugar to no sugar may be impossible, sugar being a key ingredient in Indian households. Here, safe low calorie sweeteners come into play.
Low-calorie sweetener is a food additive that provides a sweet taste like that of sugar while containing significantly less food energy than sugar-based sweeteners, making it a zero-calorie or low-calorie sweetener (LCS). Conversations often arise and lead to the safety of switching to low calorie sweeteners and their health benefits.
Unlike popular perception, low calorie sweeteners available in the market are thoroughly investigated and their safety is confirmed by many studies. It is not possible to market a new sweetener without the approval of the competent authorities.
