A Panel Or Type II Diabetics Reveal Fructevia To Be Sweetener Of Choice

Online PR News – 04-June-2011 – – Prior to the release of their flagship sweetener Fructevia, Steviva Brands gave away samples of the patented stevia based sweetener, to diabetics who were selected from an in-house consumer database of users of Steviva brands’ original stevia sweetener, Steviva Blend. These diabetic participants tested their blood sugar levels before and after using Fructevia and found that it had no effect on their blood glucose levels. The testimonial that follows is a typical response and gives convincing evidence that Fructevia should be the sweetener of choice for diabetics.

John Cannon, a caretaker for his diabetic father, said, “Fructevia works. Dad now has perfect blood glucose levels. With his pancreas only 80% functional, his waking BG is averaging 112 mg/dl and his before dinner BG averages 95 mg/dl. He has no gastrointestinal problems and no sugar level changes after eating foods sweetened with Fructevia.”

Dr. Jeffrey Fedorko, DC, who has a degree in biochemistry from Juniata College in Huntington, Pennsylvania, a doctorate of chiropractic from National College of Chiropractic in Lombard, Illinois specializes in a whole person approach to wellness and regularly treats diabetics. He said, “When combined with a healthy diet and exercise, using Fructevia as your sweetener of choice may help you better control your type II diabetes.”

Fructevia, the “good-for-you” sweetener, is different from any other sweetener in the world. It uses non-GMO, fruit based crystalline fructose which has little to no effect on blood sugar levels, is low glycemic, and cooks and bakes just like sugar.

“What really makes Fructevia special is how well it works for cooking and baking.
There is a chemical process that occurs when cooking and baking with pure stevia that alcohol sugars don’t achieve. With Fructevia, cakes rise, cookies are crisp on the outside and moist in the middle, meringues get fluffy and sauces have the flavor and mouth feel of those made with sugar but without all the carbs and calories.” said Thom King Founder and CEO of Steviva Brands.

A recent study at Department of Food Science, National Pingtung University of Science and Technology, Pingtung City, Taiwan, R.O.C. reveals that in the intake of dietary fructose has undergone a marked increase around the world, especially in the developed countries. This research also provides supportive data that repeated oral administration of stevioside delays the development of insulin resistance in persons on a high-fructose diet. This demonstrates that the oral administration of stevioside improves insulin sensitivity, and seems suitable as an adjuvant for diabetic patients and/or those who consume large amounts of fructose.

Fructevia, a sweetener made with the all natural super sweetener, stevia extract, which is 300 times sweeter than sugar but with no carbs or calories, is more than twice as sweet as sugar so you use only half as much. A product of Steviva Brands, global manufacturer and distributor of stevia based sweeteners and other bulk ingredient sweeteners; Fructevia has been tested by diabetics for its effectiveness, giving convincing evidence that Fructevia should be the sweetener of choice for all diabetics.

As an added benefit, Fructevia also contains a very fine fiber, FOS, which offsets carbs and feeds the friendly flora in the digestive system. Also known as inulin, Steviva Brands’ FOS is derived from Jerusalem artichokes.
