Zusto is a unique and innovative sugar substitute which is made from naturally derived substances, namely dietary fibres of corn and chicory. These fibres deliver the sweet taste and structure of traditional sugar.

Zusto can replace sugar on a 1 to 1 weight basis, so this means that the structure, texture and taste of the original product does not alter. Also, it does not have an after taste sensation. 

Zusto has 75% less calories than normal sugar. 100g sugar = 400 kcal vs 100g Zusto = 98 kcal.

Zusto is ideal for diabetic patients as it has a low glycaemic index of 22. The fibres in Zusto naturally lower blood sugar levels.

The corn and chicory fibres in Zusto have an additional prebiotic effect on the human intestinal flora. This can lead to a healthier digestive system.

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.

"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."

"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
