Experts recommend Sukrin Gold

Nutrition per 100g
All Sukrin products are made with natural, non-genetically modified ingredients.
What is Sukrin Gold?
Sukrin Gold is a Zero Carb Zero Calorie Natural Sweetener, purely made from the natural polyol erythritol, which is derived from GM-Free corn starch. It contains no artificial colours, additives or preservatives, and is naturally gluten- free. All Sukrin Sweeteners are non-glycemic.
How is Sukrin Gold made?
Sukrin Gold is mainly erythritol, which is a polyol. Polyols are carbohydrates that have no effect on blood sugar. To make Sukrin Gold, we ferment glucose from Non-GMO corn starch with a natural culture, much like the process used in the production of cheese and yoghurt. The resultant liquid is dried, and a little Stevia is added along with malt to give the flavour, aroma and texture of brown sugar, but with 97% less available carbohydrates, and less than 1 GI. Sukrin Gold has no effect whatsoever on blood sugar. Sweetness has come a long way.
Is Sukrin Gold natural?
Sukrin Gold is purely made from the natural polyol erythritol derived from GM-Free corn starch. It contains no artificial colours, additives or preservatives, and is naturally gluten free.
Is the sweetness of Sukrin Gold the same as normal sugar?
Sukrin Gold is just as sweet as regular brown sugar, so you can use it like for like.
How many calories are in Sukrin Gold?
Sukrin Gold has 8Kcal per 100g, which is less than 1kcal per teaspoon. This equates to 0% of your GDA.
Is Sukrin Gold a carbohydrate?
Yes and no. Erythritol is technically a carbohydrate, but it does not behave like regular carbohydrates such as sugar and starch. Erythritol is not used as energy in the body, but excreted unused in the urine. You do not need to take into account erythritol when calculating your intake of carbohydrates. Therefore, Sukrin Gold is very well-suited for all low-carb diets and for all those that would like to avoid unnecessary carbohydrates.
Is Sukrin Gold ok for diabetics?
With less than 1 GI, and virtually free from calories and carbohydrates, Sukrin Gold is safe for diabetics. Sukrin Gold has no effect on the blood sugar.
What are sugar alcohols?
Sugar alcohols are a type of carbohydrate called "polyols". Part of their chemical structure resembles sugar, and part of it resembles alcohol -- hence the confusing name. Sugar alcohols occur naturally in plants. Some of them are extracted from plants, and some from sugars and starches. Though the word "alcohol" is part of their name, they have no effect on your blood sugar alcohol level, unlike regular alcohol.
What are the benefits of Erythritol?
Not to be confused with artificial sweetener, Erythritol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol, also known as a polyol. Found naturally in some plants, vegetables and even the human body, it has been found to be safe as a sugar substitute even when consumed daily and in high amounts. Erythritol is non-calorific - while most sugar alcohols like Xylitol have some calories, erythritol has zero and is non-glycemic. Erythritol is easier than other sugar alcohols to digest, some being absorbed in the small intestine, and the rest being excreted in the urine - very little reaches the colon so it´s unlikely to cause stomach problems like some other sugar alcohols. It is non-carcinogenic, and also has antioxidant properties.
Is Sukrin Gold the same as fructose?
No. Fructose is a type of sugar with 400 calories per 100g, just like regular sugar (sucrose). Sukrin Gold is not sugar and contains virtually no calories.
Is Sukrin Gold suitable for people following an anti Candida diet?
Sukrin Gold does not provide a growing medium for yeasts, which makes it perfect for sufferers of Candida Albicans.
Is Sukrin Gold suitable for people following a low FODMAP diet?
Erythritol is a 4 carbon polyol, that is mostly absorbed via the small intestine into the bloodstream. It is not fermented in the colon and is unlikely to cause intestinal distress. Therefore, it may be well tolerated by those following a low FODMAP diet.
Is there proof that erythritol is safe?
A critical and thorough study of all conditions surrounding erythritol was put together in 1998. Nothing negative could be found.
Here are the conclusions of the 36-page study:
“The large body of published data supports the conclusion that the intake of erythritol would not be expected to cause adverse effects in humans under the conditions of its intended use in food. The available studies demonstrate that erythritol is readily absorbed, is not systemically metabolized, and is rapidly excreted unchanged in the urine. Moreover, erythritol occurs endogenously and naturally in the diet. Both animal toxicological studies and clinical studies have consistently demonstrated the safety of erythritol, even when consumed on a daily basis in high amounts. Based on the entire safety data package on erythritol, it is concluded that erythritol is safe for its intended use in food.”
(Food and Chemical Toxicology 36 (1998) 1139-1174)
Is erythritol toxic to animals?
Erythritol has been found to be harmless to dogs.
How do I replace the sugar in recipes with Sukrin Gold?
You can replace the regular sugar in all of your cooking and baking with the same amount of Sukrin Gold
Can I use Sukrin Gold in yeast cookery?
Sukrin Gold is not sugar, so will not activate yeast like regular sugar will. Add a teaspoon of sugar or honey to start off your yeast if you need to, and use Sukrin Gold to replace the rest of the sugar in the recipe.
Can I use Sukrin Gold in all my cooking and baking?
Sukrin Gold can be used wherever you would normally use regular brown sugar. Take a look at our recipes for some inspiration!!
What is tagatose and why do you add it to Sukrin Gold?
Tagatose is a natural sweetener. It is a naturally occurring monosaccharide, specifically a hexose. It is often found in dairy products, and is very similar in texture to sucrose and is 92% as sweet, but with only 38% of the calories. Tagatose is added to Sukrin Gold to give it a little extra boost of natural sweetness.
What is glycerol and why do you use it?
Glycerol, like erythritol, is also a sugar alcohol, and is added to keep Sukrin Gold free flowing.
Why is malt added to Sukrin Gold?
Malt, extracted from barley, is added to Sukrin Gold to add a golden colour and a rich rounded flavour.
Baking with Sukrin Gold
Where can I use Sukrin Gold?
Sukrin Gold can be used everywhere you normally use sugar. Use Sukrin Gold on fruit and berries, cereal, porridge, in tea and coffee, in smoothies, in jam or everywhere else you want to replace sugar. Sukrin Gold withstands heat and can therefore also be used for cooking and baking. Sukrin Gold and sugar have the same volume, so 100ml Sukrin Gold is equivalent to 90g.
How can I use Sukrin Gold for my own recipes?
When using Sukrin Gold in your own recipes, there are some things you should bear in mind to achieve optimal results. The amount of Sukrin Gold used should not exceed one fifth or approx 20% of the total ingredients. Example: In a dough of 1kg, 100g Sukrin Gold should be used. This amounts to 10% of the total weight, and works very well. If the recipe uses a lot of sugar, you can use some other sweetening in addition to Sukrin Gold, for example, honey or brown sugar. If you are unsure, we recommend trying first with half/half Sukrin Gold and sugar.

It tasted great in my coffee......Sukrin Gold
It tasted great in my coffee. It had not a cooling aftertaste nor was it bitter. I can´t believe its only a calorie per spoonful. I looked up natural sweeteners and found nearly every one has cancer directly or indirectly indicated and nearly every one has a high glycemic index reading which causes our body to try to filter out sugars in our blood which are simply not there ,and eventually shuts down the insulin levels causing our bodies to stop filtering out real sugars when we consume them in foods etc. Which causes weight gain and diabetes. Only stevia did not do this but it tasted real bitter in my coffee and wasn´t worth it. Guava nectar was a cheap honey substitute and is still sugar. Honey is the only natural vitamin sweetener but again it doesn`t taste good in coffee. Fermented corn starch (Sukrin Gold) is natural and (the) body is designed to deal with the process of breaking this sweetener down. It tastes as sweet as sugar and you`ll need two teaspoonfuls. It costs a bit much but for dietary and health reasons I will continue to buy it. Great item!
