Lakanto won’t raise your blood sugar levels and it won’t feed bad bacteria in the gut. This is why I recommended it to all my patients when they are on a detox, and even after to maintain their healthy lifestyle.” Try it, you’ll like it.
Higher blood sugar and overeating Pure monk fruit extract has zero calories and does not raise blood sugar. This graph from Lakanto, a major Japanese supplier of the sweetener, shows how their extract has a glycemic index and glycemic load of zero.
Made from a proprietary blend of the sweet extract of the Chinese luo han guo fruit and erythritol (a non digestable sugar alcohol made by fermenting the sugar in non-genetically modified corn), Lakanto is a completely unique natural sweetener that is calorie free, zero glycemic and perfect for your healthy lifestyle.
The all-natural Lakanto is a safe option for hypoglycemics, diabetics and people struggling with candida. It is one of the most important products Body Ecology has ever offered, and the ideal sugar substitute for everyone’s healthy lifestyle.
For that reason, we opt for Lakanto liquid monk fruit since it’s not made with sugar alcohols like erythritol. Here’s the link for it on Amazon . Monk Fruit In The Raw does not contain sugar alcohols, but either the extraction method or the maltodextrin seems to be causing gas for many people, when used in high amounts.
Whether you follow an anti-candida diet, are diabetic, trying to cut back on sugar, want to maintain your weight or just want to be healthier, Lakanto is an ideal sugar substitute. Here are the top questions answered about Lakanto. Q. I am not sure I really understand Lakanto’s appropriateness for an anti-candida diet.
Where is Lakanto made?
A. Lakanto is made in Japan by a special fermentation process and this does result in a very small amount of alcohol. The amount is so minute, though, that the end product is not alcoholic and does not feed candida.
A. The corn used to make the erythritol in Lakanto provides plant sugars. The plant sugars from the corn are combined with water and fermented with the proper cultures into erythritol. Then it is filtered, allowed to crystalize and then it dries.
A. The extract of luo han guo fruit does not spike blood sugar or cause an increase in insulin. Along the lines of fruits included in the Body Ecology program, like lemons, limes, unsweetened cranberries and unsweetened black currants, it does not feed candida.
How Did It Affect My Blood Sugars?
At no point during my food experiments did my blood sugar spike. I dosed minimal amounts of insulin for each thing I tried and saw no substantial rise in my blood glucose level. This was a huge win! Snacks, breakfast ideas and sugar substitute to bake with… that don’t affect my blood sugar? I am all in!
Usually, when I use a sugar substitute I am aware, while not bothered by its appearance in the recipe. Some of them even have a “cooling effect” moments after. This tasted the most similar to the real thing plus had no after taste.
I highly recommend giving Lakanto products a try. With a very natural taste, this is a sugar substitute for the most skeptical of pala tes. The premade pancake, cookie and brownie mixes will now definitely be in my repertoire since I certainly won’t feel bad about eating sugar-free, low-fat delicious food!
