Back in December I was contacted by NXT Nutritionals about a healthy alternative to table sugar & artificial sweeteners. Carlee sent me out a complimentary sample of Susta to sample & review for the blog. Susta comes packaged in a box of 50 little packets, much like sugar or Splenda packets.
From the NXT Nutritionals website:
SUSTA Natural Sweetener is a proprietary blend of non-caloric ingredients that can put the “brakes” on higher glycemic foods or beverages from adversely effecting your blood sugar. Products using SUSTATM Natural Sweetener are high fiber, with nutrients and minerals, no or low fats and have no added trans or hydrogenated fats. SUSTATM is great energy and nutrition for your heart, bones, and immune system.
There are many benefits to Susta Natural Sweetener:
- Contains Probiotics
- Supports Digestive & Immune Health
- Low Glycemic Index Food
- Only 5 calories
You can see the comparison of Susta & several other sweeteners below:
I have been using Susta to sweeten my coffee and as a treat on my Oikos & fruit. Susta provides just enough sweetness without over doing it. It also didn’t upset my stomach like some of the low calorie artificial sweeteners on the market do. This is a great option for those who are looking for a low calorie, natural sweetener to add to their coffee, tea or foods. You can purchase Susta here for $6.99/box. Also, NXT Nutritionals will be making a baking version of Susta that can be preordered on their website now. Susta & NXT Nutritionals are proud supporters of the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).
