High levels of sugar in the diet can lead to health problems such as tooth decay and obesity, which may cause chronic health problems such as high blood pressure, Type 2 Diabetes and other cardiovascular diseases. Opting for sugar alternatives such as a low-calorie sweetener is a healthy diet choice; however, most people often fall for marketing gimmicks and start using products that claim to be low-calorie sweeteners. Some low-calorie sweeteners are sugar-free but contain Polyols (which are high in carbohydrates), which are considered high FODMAP and can cause bloating e.g., xylitol and sorbitol.

What is a low-calorie sweetener?

Every other Australian today is moving to a sugar-free life with low-calorie sweeteners. Low-calorie sweeteners, also known as natural sugar substitutes, are chemical additives that are low in calories and healthier than processed sugar. We all ought to enjoy sweets without worrying about calories, right?

Some natural low-calorie sweeteners do not raise blood glucose which makes them an ideal sugar substitute for diabetics and pre-diabetics patients. Since some natural low-calorie sweeteners (e.g., stevia and thaumatin) are not carbohydrates or have no sugar, they can be easily mixed with hot and cold beverages, topped on desserts, sprinkled over ready to eat meals and, in baking. If used effectively, these low-calorie sweeteners can help people lose weight, combat obesity and stay healthy by lowering the calorie intake in the body.

Why are artificial sweeteners unsafe?

According to a new study published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal), most commercial artificial sweeteners available in the market might be associated with an increased risk of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart diseases. Multiple data sources on the internet indicate that artificial sweeteners may have negative effects on metabolism, gut bacteria and appetite.
