Type 2 Protein Sweetener is composed of naturally occurring plant extracts. Stevia leaves a sweet and bitter after taste and thaumatin leaves a sharp sweetness with lingering sweetness. By combining both sweeteners, the taste is much closer to sugar.
Stevia is a carbohydrate and thaumatin is a protein. The sweetness in Type 2 is largely derived from thaumatin and therefore it is referred to as a protein sweetener.
Sugar alcohols are carbohydrates and excessive consumption means a spike in blood sugar levels, which is not only unsafe for those with diabetes, it’s undesirable for the rest of the population.
When eaten in large quantities, sometimes as little as 10 grams, sugar alcohols can lead to unpleasant side effects such as bloating, gas and diarrhoea and of course excessive sugar consumption has been linked to all kinds of health problems.
Type 2 sweetener is a non-nutritive sweetener. Nutritive and non-nutritive sweeteners enhance the flavor and/or texture of food. Nutritive sweeteners provide the body with calories, while non-nutritive sweeteners are very low in calories or contain no calories at all. They can both be added to food and beverages.

Sugar or sucrose is a disaccharide which ultimately breaks down to simple sugar, glucose, fructose and galactose. Majority of sugar we consume generally comes from processed foods including sugared beverages. In these foods sugar is added to satisfy our cravings for sugar. High sugar intake is attributed to metabolic diseases such as Hypertension, Type 2 Diabetics, Kidney failure and Cardiovascular disease.
Type 2 Sweeteners are the best alternative other than not consuming foods and beverages with added sugar.
