Healthy alternative to icing sugar

Sukrin Icing has several health benefits over sugar and artificial sweeteners. Sukrin Icing can help protect against tooth decay by curbing the growth of bacteria in the mouth that causes cavities. Sukrin Icing acts as an antioxidant as it has the ability to fight free radicals in the body.

When you use Sukrin Icing to make icings you may want to add some regular icing sugar to balance the consistency: you will still have a reduced sugar end-product without compromising on taste.



100% safe and all-natural

Many people would like to limit their sugar consumption, but are concerned about the safety of artificial sweeteners. Sukrin Icing is a 100% all-natural product with no additives, based on the Polyol erythritol. Erythritol occurs naturally in pears and melons.



Sukrin Icing is produced by a natural fermentation process.

All-natural Sukrin Icing is made of erythritol, which is made from glucose extracted from non-gm corn starch.

Ingredients: Sukrin (erythritol) and Stevia (Steviol glycosides).

Experts recommend Sukrin Icing

Professor of Nutrition, Dag Viljen Poleszynski, recommends erythritol (>Sukrin Icing is pure erythritol) as a natural and safe alternative to sugar.

Sophie Hexeberg is a Medical Doctor and has a doctorate in nutrition. She has published several cookbooks that contain recipes with Sukrin sweeteners.  "The Scandinavian diet: Healthy with low carbs" has been on the Norwegian bestseller list for more than a year!

"I recommend Sukrin (sweeteners) to all my patients as a substitute for sugar, and most are very satisfied with this alternative."

Inge Lindseth is a trained clinical nutritionist, and has worked for years with diet advice. In 2010 the book "Living well with type 2 diabetes" was published, with Inge as a co-author. Lindseth recommends using Sukrin Icing as a sweetener.

FAQ

What is Sukrin Icing?

Sukrin Icing 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 Icing made?

Sukrin Icing is mainly erythritol, which is a polyol. Polyols are carbohydrates that have no effect on blood sugar. To make Sukrin Icing, 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 powdered, a little stevia added, and that´s it. With zero carbohydrates, and zero GI, Sukrin Icing has no effect whatsoever on blood sugar. Sweetness has come a long way.



Is Sukrin Icing natural?

Sukrin Icing 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 Icing the same as normal sugar?

Sukrin Icing is just as sweet as regular icing sugar, so you can use it like for like.



How many calories are in Sukrin Icing?

Sukrin Icing has zero calories.



Is Sukrin Icing 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 Icing is very well-suited to all low-carb diets and for all those that would like to avoid unnecessary carbohydrates.



Is Sukrin Icing ok for diabetics?

With zero calories and carbohydrates, Sukrin Icing is safe for diabetics. Sukrin Icing 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. Despite the 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 Icing the same as fructose?

No. Fructose is a type of sugar with 400 calories per 100g, just like regular sugar (sucrose). Sukrin Icing is not sugar and contains no calories.



Is Sukrin Icing suitable for people following an anti Candida diet?

Sukrin Icing does not provide a growing medium for yeasts, which makes it perfect for sufferers of Candida Albicans.



Is Sukrin Icing 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 Icing?

You can replace the regular icing sugar in all of your cooking and baking with the same amount of Sukrin Icing.



Can I use Sukrin Icing in yeast cookery?

Sukrin Icing 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 Icing to replace the rest of the sugar in the recipe.



Can I use Sukrin Icing in all my cooking and baking?

Sukrin Icing can be used wherever you would normally use regular Icing sugar. Take a look at our recipes for some inspiration!!

Baking with Sukrin Icing

Where can I use Sukrin Icing?

Sukrin Icing can be used everywhere you normally use icing/powdered sugar. Sukrin Icing is perfect for cakes and desserts that don’t need to be baked, such as ice creams and cheesecakes. Sukrin Icing can be used for meringues, dusting, buttercream, cream cheese, glacé icings, smoothies, iced tea and other cold drinks.

Sukrin Icing and icing/powdered sugar have the same volume, so 100ml Sukrin Icing is equivalent to 90g.

Note: When making larger quantities of glacé icing, for best results use Sukrin Icing half and half with icing sugar.

Sweet nothings

Sukrin Icing

Finally I can have icing again!

Sukrin Icing
This stuff is phenomenal! Yes, it does have a slight "cooling" taste caused by the erythritol but it doesn't have any carbs either - so I say that's a fair compromise. It's brilliant to work with, even better than real icing because this stuff just "stops" rather than running over the edge of cakes. Bring out a version that doesn't chill the mouth and you guys will really have pushed it over the top. :)
