Comparing Sweeteners.

There’s a world of choice in sweeteners but just so you know, not all sweeteners are created equally. While you may think that most are just completely devoid of any benefit other than that good old sugar rush, LIVA raw organic date sugar stands out as a more healthy alternative. We encourage you to check out the comparisons shown here. Maybe to save you a little time let’s share the inside story on date sugar.

Glycemic measures: Index = 55*; Load** = 1.3; Level*** = Low
Calories in 1 teaspoon = 11
Available carbohydrates in 1 teaspoon = 2.5g

Health profile per 100 g = High levels of selenium, copper, potassium, magnesium; moderate levels of manganese, iron, phosphorous, calcium

So, no matter how you add it up, LIVA raw date sugar is a healthier alternative to many other sweeteners.

*The glycemic index is a system that ranks foods by the speeds at which their carbohydrates are converted into glucose in the body. It provides a measure of the effects of foods on blood-sugar levels. 
**The glycemic load indicates the amount of carbohydrate in a specified serving of a particular food.
***A food with a high GI raises blood glucose more than a food with a medium or low GI.
