Susta - Natural Sweetener - 50 Packet(s) (50 - 0.07 oz./2g)
Susta Natural Sweetener is a proprietary blend of non-caloric ingredients that can put the “brakes” on higher glycemic foods or beverages from adversely effecting your blood sugar. Products using Susta Natural Sweetener are high fiber, with nutrients and minerals, no or low fats and have no added trans or hydrogenated fats. Susta is great energy and nutrition for your heart, bones, and immune system. Glycemic index is a measurement of how much a given food can influence your blood sugar. Glycemic index requires precise laboratory conditions of measuring just one food at a time. When you eat a meal, the foods in that meal may be a combination of high and low glycemic foods. In this case, mixing high and low glycemic foods may have a great effect on your blood sugar levels. Susta Natural Sweetener works for you by helping to balance and tame higher glycemic foods naturally, so as to put the brakes on blood sugar spiking and crashes.

Supports Digestive & Immune Health
Susta Natural Sweetener is a “symbiotic” food. That means, it contains prebiotics (soluble fiber) along with probiotics (special beneficial bacteria that is released in your digestive tract). The combination is found to promote greater health benefits to one’s digestion, and helps support the immune system. Every Susta Natural Sweetener serving provides you at least a gram of valuable fiber and over a hundred million time release probiotics* to seed your digestive tract that are healthy, safe and effective for adults, young children, and people with special health needs.
A Low Glycemic Index Food
Low glycemic means a food will not over-stimulate the release of insulin or create an adverse rise of your blood sugar. Along with Susta Natural Sweetener’s low calorie count and extra fiber, low glycemic foods can be an important and helpful aid for a more healthy weight management lifestyle. In addition to these virtues, Susta Natural Sweetener also provides important nutrients and probiotics with every delicious serving to further enhance its nutritional benefits.
Avoids Sugar Shock
Concentrated sugars, as found in many juices, refreshment drinks, and foods, can quickly raise your blood sugar. This stimulates a vigorous release of insulin that can cause your blood sugar to rapidly rise and then fall while creating temporary, but uncomfortable physical or mental symptoms in some people. Susta Natural Sweetener is designed with proportionately high fiber to sugar, and key nutrients to help you enjoy a sweeter experience without the accompanying “sugar shock”. Also the rapid rise and fall of blood sugar can create other kinds of stress such as the formation of more cell damaging free radicals.Susta Natural Sweetener has a specialized blend of nutrients, ingredients and antioxidants such as Vitamin C, selenium and Vitamin B6, that can help inhibit the formation of free radical formation from the meals you eat. It’s important to note that fresh fruits and vegetables are the most significant sources of nutrients to help protect our cells from free radical damage and other forms of stress that can come from excessive and long term high blood sugar levels This is another reason why Susta Natural Sweetener intentionally models itself after these wonderful foods to better provide you and your family a more healthful, versatile and unique sweetening system.
Susta Brings Health Sweetness To Life
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is Susta Natural Sweetener
A:Susta is a great-tasting, all-natural sweetener that contains probiotics, fiber, vitamins, minerals and other ingredients for optimal health.
Q: What’s in a packet of Susta?
A: Susta is a blend of natural ingredients including dietary fibers, orange peel and other natural extracts.
Q: How is Susta different from other sweeteners?
A: Some sweeteners contain dangerous chemicals and processed ingredients, and most of them contain no nutritional benefits. Other natural sweeteners may contain Stevia, a plant derivative which produces a bitter aftertaste. Susta is an all-natural sweetener that tastes great and provides unparalleled health benefits, too.
Q: What does Susta taste like?
A: As a standalone product, Susta has a subtle, sweet fruit taste. When added to coffee, tea, cereal and other foods and beverages, Susta sweetens without overwhelming – unlike other sweeteners, which can mask the original taste of foods and beverages by providing a strong, unnatural sweetness.
Q: Is Susta calorie-free?
A: One packet of Susta has five calories. Recent studies have shown that zero-calorie products can cause cravings and may actually contribute to weight gain, and that the sweetness of artificial sweeteners can also result in an impulse to eat something sweet and caloric – all of which may result in weight gain. Susta’s five calories ensure that consumers will be satisfied after consuming the product.
Q: How can Susta be good for you if it contains fructose?
A: Like a healthy and nutritious apple or a vegetable, Susta has a very tiny amount of sweet fructose, with lots of fiber and other important nutrients. In fact, it takes almost a whole box of Susta packets to equal the sugar in one apple! Fructose is a natural sugar and plays a crucial role within the health and metabolism of virtually all living things: plants, animals and even micro-organisms. However, like all things, moderation really is the key when consuming any foods or dietary nutrients, including fructose and all sugars.
Q: What happens when you frequently over-consume sugars, especially large amounts of fructose?
A: Continuous overconsumption of dietary sugars (including High Fructose Corn Syrup) means that excess fructose can be converted into body fat sooner and somewhat easier than its sister sugar glucose (both glucose and fructose in near equal amounts make sucrose and most forms of HFCS). Additionally, consuming excess sugar over time is linked to other potential health problems, including diabetes, obesity and dental decay. In contrast, the tiny amount of natural fruit sugar (fructose) found in Susta is buried within a high-fiber blend and does not cause health problems. Susta’s natural fruit fructose plays a nutritional role in the diet and is consistent with the kind of healthy nutrient composition found in fruits and vegetables.
Q: What is the difference between fructose and high fructose corn syrup?
A: HFCS is made from both fructose and glucose. Most of the time, the two sugars in HFCS exist in nearly equal amounts. However, there are some forms of HFCS used by some manufacturers that may have even higher levels of fructose. Also high in glucose, HFCS will rapidly raise the blood sugar, which stimulates the blood sugar response. Natural fructose, as found in plants, does not contain glucose and in small normal amounts, as found in fresh fruits and vegetables, does not significantly raise the blood sugar.
Q: Where can I buy Susta?
A: Here At Luckyvitamin.Com
Q: Is Susta FDA-approved?
A: All of the ingredients in Susta are well-known and have GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) Certification or comparable from the FDA. Susta does not require FDA approval.
Q: Is Susta safe for use by diabetics?
A: Susta is a safe sugar alternative for diabetics and is the only sweetener endorsed by Dr. James R. Gavin III, former President of the American Diabetes Association and a member of the Company’s Medical Advisory Board.
Q: Can Susta be used by pregnant women?
A: Yes. Susta is all-natural and chemical-free, and is therefore safe for use during pregnancy.
Q: Are there any other Susta products available?
A: Consumers can find Susta in the dairy aisle in Healthy Dairy Yogurt Smoothies throughout the northeastern U.S. The product is all-natural and nonfat, and contains essential nutrients, proteins and probiotics bacteria. Healthy Dairy Yogurt Smoothies are available in Strawberry, Peach, Mixed Berry, Tropical Fruit and Strawberry Banana. Susta Bowl, the baking version of Susta, will be available in summer 2010.
Q: What else should we know about Susta?
A: Susta is all-natural and does not contain wheat, soy, alcohol, yeast, caffeine, egg, dairy, or lactose. Susta is also cholesterol-free, vegan and gluten-free, all the while providing vitamins, nutrients, probiotics, fiber and great taste.
