How Sweet It Is: Morningpep Keto-Friendly Xyilitol

Updated: Aug 18, 2019

Sugar is basically off limits on a ketogenic diet, but not all hope is lost, you can still enjoy sweetness while eating keto.

Of the five taste sensations, sweetness is the one we're most addicted to. Our penchant for sweet-tasting stuff is embedded in our genes, and the urge is hard to fight. You'll definitely notice your sweets addiction when you first go low-carb. Many keto dieters like to wean themselves off their need for sweet goodies by using sugar substitutes. Many of these products contain zero net carbs and have absolutely no impact on blood glucose.

However, not all sugar substitutes are created equal. Some are scientifically-proven to be harmless and even beneficial while others have a questionable impact on human health. As a rule of thumb, we suggest going for natural, non-nutritive sweeteners and skip man-made ones. You'll also need to avoid those high in carbs for obvious reasons on a keto diet.

A lot of people embark on a keto journey because of where their addiction to sugar and carbs has led them, and for many this is not a happy place. However, you don’t need to completely give up on desserts or on sweetening your morning coffee.

In fact, there are many different ways to substitute sugar, minus the carbs, the calories and the negative effects. If you are following a low carb keto diet and looking for a sugar substitute for your foods, then you've come to the right place.

Most people that start a keto diet plan find that they have some intense cravings for sugar in the beginning. Even the seasoned low carb dieter will tell you that they nearly give in to a sweet temptation every once in a while.This is when keto-friendly sweeteners really show their value, providing you with a way to satisfy your sweet tooth without kicking you out of ketosis or stalling fat loss.

Among the sugar sweeteners, xylitol has the most significant impact on our dental health. Studies have found that xylitol starves the bad bacteria in the mouth and increases calcium absorption by the teeth, both of which help prevent cavities. In light of this research, xylitol is now commonly found in many different chewing gums.

Morningpep Xylitol is harvested naturally from real birch. As a sugar alcohol, xylitol is a completely natural sweetener, not to be mixed up with artificial sweeteners that have notable toxicity problems. Morningpep Xylitol’s meld of one sugar molecule and one alcohol molecule translates into a sweet taste that is promptly picked up by your tongue’s receptors. It has 40% fewer calories than sugar, 75% fewer carbohydrates, no unpleasant aftertaste, and a low glycemic index score, making it an ideal natural alternative or replacement for sugar. Much the same as sugar, Morningpep Xylitol can be utilized as a sweetener in any food or drink. In recipes that call for sugar, simply switch out the same amount of xylitol.

Not unlike similar sugar, which causes blood-sugar levels to sharply increase and decrease, xylitol has no direct effect on blood sugar or insulin levels. While sugar falls between 60-70 on the glycemic index, xylitol is at 7, making it an excellent choice for those living with sugar-controlled diets.

Because xylitol can’t be metabolized by plaque-causing bacteria, it has also been demonstrated by evidence to promote dental health and hygiene, tapering tooth decay off by 30-80% and virtually getting rid of the risk for gingivitis. By replacing xylitol for sugar, oral bacteria is diminished by up to 90%. This causes a radical reduction in acid built up in your mouth, which makes your enamel much less liable to be influenced or harmed by decay.

Following a ketogenic diet involves limiting your carb intake and reducing added sugar consumption to reach a state of ketosis. If you need sugar substitutes for your low carb and ketogenic lifestyle, it’s best to stick with Morningpep Xylitol.
