Zusto - a delicious, natural 1:1 sugar replacement for diabetics



Say hello to Zùsto, a revolutionary naturally derived sugar alternative that’s suitable for diabetics – replacing sugar on a 1:1 basis with significantly reduced calories and fat in end products.

All over the world, more and more people are suffering with diabetes; with 3.7 million people in the UK currently living with the condition. If nothing changes, more than five million people in the UK will have diabetes by 2025.

Lifestyle is a significant contributing factor to type 2 diabetes, with a direct correlation between being overweight and risk of developing type 2 diabetes – over 12 million people in the UK are living with an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Having diabetes shouldn’t mean you have to cut the foods you love out of your diet entirely, in fact, when using a sugar substitute such as Zùsto, sweet treats can be enjoyed again as part of a balanced diet. Unlike other sugar substitutes on the market, Zùsto replaces sugar on a 1:1 basis meaning there is no need to alter existing recipes.


Zùsto has become the sugar replacement of choice for domestic and commercial users, with applications ranging from a diabetic friendly sweetener for tea and coffee to a suitable replacement for sugar in meringues, cakes and other desserts. Take a look at some of the reviews we’ve received from our satisfied customers.

I purchased this for my grandparents who are both diabetic. They are very pleased with the product and find it much better than other artificial sweeteners they have tried. It’s even made a difference to their sugar levels, so the doctors were pleased too!

Found Zusto sugar substitute after being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Very happy with its taste when used in hot drinks and it doesn’t leave any aftertaste like other sweeteners seem to do.

What a fantastic product! Not only did it arrive quickly but was packaged well and came with detailed instructions on its use when cooking. I have already used Zusto to make sugar-free vegan brownies and rocky road, both of which were a huge success – could not recommend this product more 🙂

"At Charlottes Jersey Ice Cream Parlour we have been making some of our ice cream with Zùsto. We found by replacing the sugar content and in our ice cream with Zùsto, it did not effect the taste or the freezing quality. Customers couldn't tell the difference."

Eric Joyce, Ice Cream Chef at Charlotte's Jersey ice Cream Parlour

"We have 2 exciting new products available today for our diabetic customers 😱🙌 Our friends @zustouk sent us some of their lovely no sugar, sugar to try. So we have a flourless chocolate cake which is completely sugar free using zùsto sugar instead and a reduced sugar vegan chocolate & hazelnut brownie."

Blackberries Patisserie

"The sugar substitute really is amazing and delicious to taste. I thought it would have an after taste like Stevia but it's great. Will be purchasing more in the future". 

Cakes By Shahana

"I have finally had a chance to use your sample today, and I am incredibly impressed! I made a gluten free and dairy free cherry bakewell traybake (as I specialise in Free From cakes).

The batter was exactly the same consistency as usual, it baked in the same amount of time, and upon a taste test it was delicious and sweet. I wouldn't have known the difference! I use sugar syrups on my cakes to keep them moist, at first I was apprehensive I would be able to use Zùsto for a sugar syrup because of the way it reacts with wetness, but after simmering it in water (and almond essence) it had a normal sugar syrup consistency and cooled well on the cake."

Gemma, Little Gem's Cakes

I've been asked every now and again at markets if I do a low sugar jam for those with diabetes and other conditions, so I was interested when I received an email from Zùsto asking to review their sugar free sugar.

I liked the taste of raw Zùsto - kind of like a candyfloss.  For me, the finished preserve tasted the same and both a good set."

Christine, Heavenly Hedgerows
