Storage

1How do I store Skinny Sugar?
Simply store Skinny Sugar in the resealable pack that it came in or decant it into your normal sugar container.

Diabeties

1I’m a diabetic and want to reduce my G.I. fluctuations. What happens when I use Skinny Sugar.
You simply halve your G.I. intake. Skinny Sugar only has half the G.I. of full sugar. Therefore, you can use the same amount of Skinny Sugar but you will half the G.I. spikes that you would get with full sugar. The technical answer is: Skinny Sugar does not raise blood sugar to the same extent as full sugar– erythritol is considered suitable for people with diabetes because it does not raise plasma glucose or insulin levels.

Diet

1I am struggling to maintain my diet as I crave sugar. Can Skinny Sugar help?
Absolutely! Almost half of Skinny Sugar gets absorbed into the body way before it gets to the colon, where most of the bacteria reside. From the small intestine, it travels into the bloodstream. There it circulates for a while, until it is eventually excreted unchanged in the urine. So almost half of Skinny is expelled from the body without sitting on your hips, thighs or belly !!!!.

Effects on Children

1I’m concerned about increases in childhood obesity and tooth decay. How does Skinny Sugar affect these 2 critical issues?
Skinny Sugar only has half the calories of full sugar. Therefore it is a great aid in the fight against both childhood obesity and diabetes. One widely accepted side effect of sugar consumption is poor dental health, cavities and tooth decay. The harmful bacteria in the mouth can use sugar for energy. When these bacteria have plenty of energy, they grow, multiply and secrete acids that erode the enamel of the teeth. Skinny Sugar only provides half the energy source of full sugar. This helps to limit tooth decay in both children and adults.

It’s sugar but it’s skinny!
