Make a smart and sweet choice


Smart phone, smart cars, smart homes, smart cities, we have it all. But have you ever come across a sugar alternativ­e that is smart and keeps you healthy?

There is no doubt about the fact that sugar is bad. Too much of it not only wrecks your waistline and teeth, but your skin and mood too, and could lead to obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

“With sugar we often take empty calories, which do not burn off easily. Instead, consumptio­n of sugar gives the body solid fats which lead to various lifestyle diseases such as obesity, hypertensi­on and diabetes,” says nutritioni­st, Neelanjana Singh.

It’s a challenge to find sweeteners that fully replicate the taste, appearance and texture of sugar. Taking cognizance of the evolving tastes and demands for healthy alternativ­es, Sugarlite, has come up with a product that is a blend of sugar and Stevia, a sugar substitute. It provides the same sweetness of sugar, with 50% less calories.

“It looks like sugar, tastes like sugar and can be used just like sugar. What more do you want?” asks master chef Sanjeev Kapoor. “So switch to Sugarlite, as it’s actually full of benefits for your health and well-being,” the chef says, adding, “Sugarlite is a smart sugar with 50% less calories. It can be used like sugar for all kinds of sweet preparatio­ns. As people are increasing­ly moving to healthier indulgence­s, this is a smart solution which can fit into your lifestyle without having to change anything.”

Talking more about the benefits of switching to a sugar alternativ­e, Kapoor says,“The only thing which needs to be kept in mind is that ½ spoon of Sugarlite is equal to 1 spoon of sugar in sweetness. This can save up to 7500 calories for you in a month and is a very convenient way to keep your weight in check. It would act as a great addition to our festivitie­s which have undergone a quiet metamorpho­sis over years with healthier choices coming in. It is time for new beginnings”.
