“Artificial” sweeteners are exactly that—artificial and unrecognizable as food in the body.  No one would pump Kool Aid into their car’s gasoline tank, yet literally millions of brightly-colored pink, blue, and yellow packets of artificial sugar are consumed every day.  Think different!  There’s a better (and a sweeter) way!

Meet Therasweet®, the sweetener that only Living Fuel could create.  Therasweet is an all-natural, plant-sourced, low-glycemic, non-corn alternative to conventional table sugar and artificial sweeteners.  Use delicious Therasweet in your morning coffee, afternoon tea, and your favorite recipes.  Why is Therasweet a healthy, even therapeutic, alternative?  Let’s look closely.  Therasweet is made of four ingredients:

Xylitol is derived from natural, organic hardwood trees and has long-been used safely by diabetics and those carefully monitoring their blood sugar levels.

Tagatose is a naturally occurring low-glycemic sweetener that has a minimal effect on blood glucose and insulin levels.

Glycine is a naturally sweet-tasting amino acid that helps regulate blood sugar levels by breaking down glucose into energy.  Interestingly, glycine comprises up to one-third of the collagen in the human body.

Micro-encapsulated probiotics assist in digestion and a healthy immune system; the same beneficial healthy bacteria (prebiotics and probiotics) that you find in yogurt, kefir, and other fermented foods.
