Sugar replacer

In Sugar by James Anstee

Zusto is a unique and innovative sugar substitute made from naturally derived substances.

A sugar replacer rather than a sweetener, it can replace sugar on a one-to-one weight basis, meaning that the structure, texture and taste of the original product do not alter and there is no aftertaste sensation. It has 75% fewer calories than sugar and has a GI index of 22 (table sugar averages a GI of 65). In addition, the fibres in Zusto (namely corn and chicory) have a significant prebiotic influence on the intestinal flora. Zusto is heat stable and can caramelise, so can be used in the majority of applications just like normal sugar.
