So you're committed to achieving optimal health (and fighting any health issues you may be confronted with) and perhaps you've already greatly reduced or completely eliminated sugar because you know it feeds yeast, ages you quickly and leads to all kinds of serious degenerative diseases. But let's face it ... there are times when something deliciously sweet is welcomed. Yet, when we do eat it, many of us feel guilty...
We humans should not feel guilty about our desired to enjoy the sweet taste.
This desire for sweet-tasting foods and drinks is quite normal. In fact, our very first food, mother's milk, was warm and sweet and we've formed an emotional bond with this taste.
Trying to fight and use "willpower" to avoid the desire for the sweet taste is NOT the answer! That would be a losing battle.
As you know, though, refined white sugar and corn syrup is poison and even natural sweeteners like agave and honey will feed yeast and make our blood more acidic. So what choice do you really have?
Introducing LAKANTO, the closest natural sweetener to sugar EVER in terms of its taste and its versatility ... but NOT in terms of the risks it poses to your health! In fact, as you will learn below, quite the contrary...
Imagine being able to (again) make sweet treats for yourself and your family that actually taste like you used sugar ... but that won't have the ill effects of sugar. Impossible? Not any longer!
And I am thrilled to able to bring this wonderful new zero calorie all-natural sweeter that has been extremely popular in Japan to the U.S.
Is Body Ecology Abandoning Stevia?
NEVER! We fought long and hard to bring stevia to the U.S. market too.
A little over twelve years ago when the FDA banned stevia from the U.S. in an attempt to keep us from enjoying this safe, natural sweet-tasting herb, I introduced the white stevia extract powder to America and created recipes showing everyone how to use it in STEVIA: Cooking With Nature's Calorie Free Sweetener. Esteemed doctors like Robert Atkins, Julian Whittaker and Andrew Weil, helped me promote it and Body Ecology sold stevia to tens of thousands of Americans. The FDA was inundated with calls from happy users of stevia and when the import ban was lifted, stevia was approved as a dietary supplement. It soon became a popular product in health food stores everywhere.
A sure sign of stevia's success is that two food and beverage giants, CocaCola and Cargill, have recently petitioned the FDA to fully approve stevia as a sweetener. They have patented it under the name, Rebiana.
Lakanto: Ideal for Baking, Coffee & MUCH More & SAFE for Diabetics!
But while stevia is perfect for drinks and some recipes, stevia is not ideal for traditional baked goods. And while I personally never drink coffee, coffee lovers tell me it's not great in coffee either. Finally, of course, you can't sprinkle stevia onto things like you can sugar.
In the past, if you tried to make a "healthy" birthday cake for your child or bake cookies for the holidays, you may have resorted to using agave syrup or honey in your baked goods, feeling that these were better alternatives to sugar ... but those natural sweeteners DO feed candida and other pathogens.
Unlike sugar and the other natural sweeteners, though, Lakanto does not feed the harmful yeast (candida) and bacteria in your body.
Lakanto is even safe for diabetics!
And Lakanto, the amazing all-natural sweetener, has:
Lakanto is truly the next generation of healthy sweeteners.
Coincidently (if there is such a thing) at the very same time that I began providing stevia to America, a prominent business man in Japan began a quest to find an even closer substitute for sugar.
He owned Saraya Corporation, a company with an excellent reputation for bringing healthy products to the Japanese consumer. In fact, after the war ended Japan was devastated, and besides starvation and homelessness, sanitation was a serious concern. Saraya Corporation introduced a gargling machine that was (and still is) used in schools, businesses, restaurants and hospitals all over Japan. These gargling machines greatly reduced the number of illnesses and even saved countless lives.
Saraya Corporation also became the Japanese leader in environmentally safe cleaning products for personal, home and commercial use. Their excellent products are made with coconut oil. Today Saraya Corporation devotes millions of dollars each year to provide protection and safe homelands to the pygmy elephants living in the regions where their coconuts are harvested.
Just as I do, Mr. Saraya has a deep interest in our children's
health so he challenged his team of brilliant researches and
scientists to develop the perfect natural sugar substitute. After
two and a half years of relentless experimentation, Lakanto was
introduced and has now become Japan's third most popular
sweetener...behind sugar (and sadly) aspartame.
Now you can see why my friend Saraya-san and I are both excited to be offering his patented sweet "secret" to the United States.
Lakanto IS safe for anyone ... kids, diabetics, people watching their weight, hypoglycemics, and, of course, anyone with a sweet tooth. And yes, Lakanto gives you the flavor of sugar, without the many downsides...that's why we love it.
What Is Lakanto Made From?
The two natural ingredients in Lakanto are erythritol and the supersweet extract of the luo han guo fruit from China.
Erythritol is a sugar alcohol naturally found in grapes, pears, mushrooms, soy sauce, cheese, wine and beer, so it and has been part of the human diet for thousands of years.
You may be familiar with other sugar alcohols like xylitol, sorbitol, and malitol used in sugar-free candies and chewing gum. But erythritol is different and much better than these other sugar alcohols because it is FERMENTED. Yes, it is made by fermenting the sugar in corn.
Many people have trouble with foods sweetened with sugar alcohols. Diarrhea and gas and bloating are frequent complaints. But Lakanto does not cause diarrhea, gas and bloating. We believe it may be because Lakanto is made by fermentation while the other sugar alcohols are made from hydrogenation.
Body Ecology specially requested Saraya produce our Lakanto using GMO-free erythritol for the US market. It was costly but they were able to do this special order for us.
Erythritol is sweet, but when used alone in a product does
not taste like sugar. Only when it was combined with the
sweet-tasting and medicinal fruit luo han guo...in a unique
patented process...was Saraya able to create an amazing replica
The Chinese have been using luo han guo fruit as a sweetener and natural remedy for years. They dry the fruit, which has a sweet toffee or caramel-like flavor, and use it in teas to ease fever, coughing and phlegm. They even use the tea for digestive troubles.
In fact, the Chinese call luo han guo the "longevity fruit," because the people who live where it is cultivated often reach the ripe old age of 100!
Scientists have studied luo han guo and its health benefits extensively, and they've found that this rare fruit has amazing health properties.
Studies have shown that mogrosides (compounds found in the
extract of luo han guo) have these properties:
The luo han guo fruit is naturally sweet. In fact, the special extract is 300 times sweeter than sucrose!
Because luo han guo extract is sweet without affecting blood sugar, it is perfect for a healthy sugar substitute.
Luo han guo extract in Body Ecology's Lakanto has:
the extract of luo han guo and erythritol make one of the best
healthy natural sweetener discoveries of the century ... LAKANTO!
Now with Lakanto, you'll get a healthy end result that you won't
believe is not sugar!
Just a FEW of Lakanto's many other uses include:
Try Lakanto today, and you'll see why it is so popular elsewhere in the world. But it is more than just an ideal sugar substitute.
