Hello, I’m Yasmine from the baking blog Tartes Yaya. As well as blogging, I work full-time as an IT project manager. Baking is my creative outlet, but I also enjoy sport (jogging, walking, aerial acrobatics and horse riding).
I’m a mother, with an 8-year-old son, Ilyas, and a 6-year-old daughter, Fatou. In August 2018, Ilyas was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (an auto-immune disease that is not caused by eating too much sugar—just to set things clear ;)). Although a type 1 diabetes patient can eat everything and doesn’t need to go on a special diet, it is more difficult for their body to process real sugars. This is because the body is not able to produce insulin itself and cannot always absorb the peaks resulting from administered insulin).
I came into contact with Zùsto through my son’s diabetes. Ever since, Zùsto has been my all-time favourite sugar substitute!
