Zusto® contains a combination of specific dietary fibers that have been specially selected because of their health value and their excellent qualities as a sugar substitute in all kinds of applications. Moreover, they reinforce each other’s work.
Zusto®, like sugar, gives sweetening power and structure to the products in which it is used. Zusto® owes its sweet taste for the most part to the fibers used. For an identical taste experience, including the characteristic peak that causes sugar, we add an intensive sweetener. Usually it is sucralose, a substance made from sugar with a strongly comparable sweet profile.
The fibers not only provide sweetening and structure, they also offer a number of health benefits and prebiotic effects. After all, eating more fiber is healthy: they form a food source for good bacteria and thus promote healthy intestinal flora. In addition, they allow a substantial reduction in calories. For example, strawberry jam prepared with Zusto contains almost 70% fewer calories. Diabetics can also safely use the product. Zusto is also gluten-free.
