Zùsto is a new and unique high-quality sugar substitute. Use it to replace sugar on a 1:1 basis. Food products that are prepared with Zùsto deliver the same sensation in the mouth, the same aromas and the same crunch. Not only that, but the taste experience is comparable to that of sugar. However, Zùsto has less than 100 kcal per 100 g. That is one quarter the amount in sugar.
Zùsto is made from a new, unique combination of various ingredients derived from natural raw materials, including plant-based fibres from corn and soluble fibre from chicory, supplemented with polydextrose and sweeteners such as isomalt, erythritol, sucralose or steviol glycosides.
Anyone who wants to avoid products with added sugars, in particular people with diabetes or who are aiming to lose weight, can incorporate Zùsto into their diet. This is because Zùsto has a low glycaemic index (GI) (less than 22; table sugar/sucrose has a GI of 70, glucose/dextrose/fructose a GI of 100) and contains no digestible carbohydrates. The glycaemic index indicates how fast carbohydrates are converted into glucose from the intestinal tract and absorbed into the blood.
