How is Zeugar Foods Sweet, but still safe for diabetics and have low calorie?

  • Zeugar Products are made by substituting Sugar in the product with Sucralose. Sucralose is product,
  • which is made from Sugar, but it has been scientifically modified to replace 3 Hydrogen – Oxygen groups on the Sugar molecule with Chlorine atoms (Same chlorine which is part of Table Salt
  • The resultant Sucralose product is much sweeter than Sugar but has zero calories and zero glycaemic index.
  • Zero Glycaemic Index indicate that Sucralose compound does not get absorbed in the blood stream like normal Sugar and therefore does not increase blood Sugar levels at all, making it fully safe for use by diabetics
  • Zero calorie of Sucralose help people reduce the overall calorie content of the dish and hence help weight control

Outside of Sugar, how safe are the other ingredients?

  • We are careful to avoid fruits or vegetables with high calorie / Glycaemic Index. That is why you will never see a Mango or Watermelon used in our dishes. We use fruits like Apple, Papaya, Berries etc which in reasonable quantities are safe for diabetics and health watchers
  • We always strive to use healthier ingredients – For e.g. We use skimmed milk (Milk where fats are removed) instead of normal milk, thereby reducing calories
  • We suggest to take your physicians advice on exactly how much quantities of our products you can have on a daily basis, but from our extensive testing done, up to 5 packs of our products is very safe to consume daily

When was Sucralose discovered? Who discovered it?

  • Sucralose was discovered in 1976 as the result of a joint sweetener research project conducted by Tate & Lyle and Queen Elizabeth College in London, UK. The scientists, who were investigating the structure-taste relationship of the sugar molecule, discovered that by modifying the structure of sugar in a certain way they could intensify the sweet taste of sugar whilst at the same time making it non-caloric.

How is Sucralose made?

  • Sucralose is made through a patented, multi-step process that starts with sugar and selectively replaces three hydrogen-oxygen groups on the sugar molecule with three chlorine atoms. The result is an exceptionally stable sweetener that tastes like sugar, but without sugar’s calories

Are the Sucralose sweeteners used in Zeugar safe?

  • Sweeteners used by Zeugar is 100% safe. This is the view of every regulatory agency that has reviewed the scientific research on the ingredient. Sucralose has been approved by both Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in USA
  • Since its introduction over a decade ago, millions of people have safely enjoyed foods and beverages sweetened with sucralose. It is conclusively tested, and its safety has been confirmed by regulatory authorities representing more than 80 countries worldwide. An extensive database of scientific research demonstrates sucralose has no harmful effects and is safe for all consumers

Can Diabetics consumer Sucralose?

  • Yes. Numerous studies have shown that sucralose is suitable for people with diabetes. Sucralose is not recognized by the body as sugar or as a carbohydrate. It is not metabolized by the body for energy and does not affect blood glucose levels. Sucralose has no effect on carbohydrate metabolism or insulin secretion and is therefore suitable for diabetics.
