Natural vs Artificial Sweeteners (Stevia vs Sucralose)
Nutritional supplements and diet based foods are renowned for using artificial sweeteners to keep the calories down and improve taste. A few of the main ones are Sucralose, Aspartame and Acesulfame K or Ace K, the corresponding numbers for these are sweetener 955, sweetener 951 and sweetener 950.
Aspartame 951 and Acesulfame K already have a terrible reputation. So lets focus on the most common sweetener used in Nutritional products: Sucralose.
Sucralose aka. Artificial sweetener 955 is everywhere (Diet Coke, protein bars eg. Quest, Protein Powders (Optimum Nutrition), Pre-workouts and even Berocca and the list goes on and on.
And a new study has shown that consuming Sucralose alongside carbohydrates can not only mess with your metabolism but also your mental state.
Making it harder for you to burn fat as well as making you feel mentally foggy and sluggish.
At Ketao, with all of our products we carefully formulate them making sure to never ever use Sucralose or any artificial sweeteners. Instead we use the NATURAL sweetener, stevia instead. It comes from a beautiful green plant and has been used safely by humans for over 200 years.
