Just in time for the fall baking season, we’ve got you covered with a full line of alternative sweeteners from NOW Foods:
Beet Sugar is derived from the refining of sugar beets. It contains 99.9% pure sucrose and is a suitable substitute for cane sugar in all recipes. Some people who are allergic to table sugar may be able to use beet sugar. 3lbs, Reg. $5.99
Pleasant tasting Date Sugar is derived from dates and can be used as a natural sweetener in place of refined sugar. Add to baked goods, breakfast cereals, toast, or beverages. 1lb, Reg. $7.99
Dextrose (also known as glucose) is a monosaccharide or simple sugar that is about 25% less sweet compared to cane sugar. Derived entirely from corn, dextrose is low-cost and contains no fructose or lactose. 2lbs, Reg. $4.89
Erythritol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol derived from a corn source and found in small amounts in various plants, fruits and fungi, including mushrooms. It contains virtually no calories (95% less calories than table sugar), has a low glycemic impact, and doesn’t contribute to tooth decay. All of the detriments of sugar are absent in Erythritol, yet it tastes just like sugar and is about 70% as sweet. Erythritol has a clean, sweet taste and is the perfect natural substitute for sugar in many applications.16oz, Reg. $8.99
Fructose is commonly called "fruit sugar" because it is the main sugar in many fruits. However, fructose is now produced from corn syrup, which is derived from corn. Fructose is almost 50% sweeter than sucrose and requires about 2/3 the amount to get the same sweetness. This means fructose provides nearly 33% fewer calories per serving.1.5lbs, Reg. $3.29
