Texture & Sweetness like Powdered Sugar – Low Carb – Zero Calorie – Gluten-free – No Additives, Preservatives or Artificial Colors

Description

Sukrin Melis (Icing Sugar) is a natural origin zero calorie alternative to regular powdered sugar with the sweetness, flavor and texture of powdered sugar.

Sukrin Melis dissolves more easily than regular Sukrin, and is suitable for:

  • Cakes and desserts that are not baked (for example, cheesecake)
  • Cream cheese icing, buttercream
  • Glace icing, made with water, lemon juice or egg white*
  • Iced tea and other cold drinks
  • Smoothies
  • Decorating and dusting
  • Yoghurt
  • Made of erythritol, which is made from glucose extracted from non-GM corn starch through a natural fermentation process. A small amount of steviol glycosides is added to obtain the same sweetness as regular powdered sugar
  • No artificial colors, additives or preservatives
  • Substitute regular powdered sugar 1:1

*When making glace icing, the best result is obtained by using half Sukrin Melis and half regular powdered sugar

Ingredients

Natural sweetener erythritol (polyol) and steviol glycosides.

FAQ

How is Sukrin Melis made?

Sukrin Melis is mainly erythritol, which is a polyol (sugar alcohol). Erythritol occurs naturally in pears, melons and mushrooms. Polyols are carbohydrates that have no effect on blood sugar. To make Sukrin Melis, we ferment glucose from Non-GMO corn starch with a natural culture, much like the process used in the production of cheese and yoghurt. The resultant liquid is dried and powdered, a little stevia added, and that’s it. With zero carbohydrates, and zero GI, Sukrin Melis has no effect whatsoever on blood sugar.

Is Sukrin Melis a carbohydrate?

Technically, erythritol is a carbohydrate, but it does not behave like regular carbohydrates such as sugar and starch. Erythritol is not used as energy in the body, but is excreted unused in the urine. You do not need to take into account erythritol when calculating your intake of carbohydrates. Therefore, Sukrin Melis is very well-suited for all low-carb diets and for all those that would like to avoid unnecessary carbohydrates.

What are sugar alcohols?

Sugar alcohols are a type of carbohydrates called “polyols”. Part of their chemical structure resembles sugar, and part of it resembles alcohol – hence the confusing name. Sugar alcohols occur naturally in plants. Some of them are extracted from plants, and some from sugars and starches. Despite the name, they have no effect on your blood sugar alcohol level, unlike regular alcohol.

What are the benefits of Erythritol?

Not to be confused with an artificial sweetener, erythritol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol, also known as a polyol. Found naturally in some plants, vegetables and even the human body, it has been found to be safe as a sugar substitute even when consumed daily and in high amounts. Erythritol is non-calorific – while most sugar alcohols like Xylitol have some calories, erythritol has zero and is non-glycemic. Erythritol is easier than other sugar alcohols to digest, some being absorbed in the small intestine, and the rest being excreted in the urine – very little reaches the colon so it´s unlikely to cause stomach problems like some other sugar alcohols. It is non-carcinogenic, and also has antioxidant properties.

How do I replace the powdered sugar in recipes with Sukrin Melis?

You can replace the regular powdered sugar in all of your cooking, baking, drinks etc. with the same amount of Sukrin Melis

Can I use Sukrin Melis when using yeast?

Sukrin Melis is not sugar, so it will not activate yeast like regular sugar will. Add a teaspoon of sugar or honey to start off your yeast if you need to, and use Sukrin Melis to replace the rest of the sugar in the recipe

For which diets is Sukrin Melis suited?

With zero calories and carbohydrates, Sukrin Melis is safe for diabetics. Sukrin Melis has no effect on the blood sugar

Sukrin Melis does not provide a growing medium for yeasts, which makes it perfect for sufferers of Candida Albicans

Erythritol is a 4 carbon polyol, that is mostly absorbed via the small intestine into the bloodstream. It is not fermented in the colon and is unlikely to cause intestinal distress. Therefore, it may be well tolerated by those following a low FODMAP diet

Perfect for LCHF, Keto-diets, 5:2, Vegetarian and Vegan diets

Is Sukrin Melis toxic to dogs and other animals?

Erythritol has been found to be harmless to dogs
