by Ssregina Regina (2019-05-17)

A good Lo Han extract offers certain advantages Gaia's Protocol Review over other natural sweeteners. For example, stevia, unless highly purified, has quite noticeable flavor undertones that make it unsuitable for use in many products. Similarly, glycyrrhizin (from licorice) has significant flavor limitations. Lo Han has a clean taste that combines well with many other sweeteners, such as xylitol and other sugar alcohols.Another advantage of Lo Han is its versatility. It is very stable in the face of heating and freezing, and therefore can be used readily in cooked and baked goods as well as in frozen desserts.Lo Han is a good alternative to consider when looking for natural sweeteners that are calorie-free, not just sugar-free. Controversy has emerged repeatedly in the natural products industry with regard to bars and meal replacements that have been promoted as being sugar-free and even carbohydrate-free, yet supplied substantial numbers of calories in the form of various sugar alcohols, glycerin, or similar sources. Lo Han offers a way to avoid this trap, for it not only can be used specifically as a sweetening agent, it also can be promoted as being calorie-free. For general wellbeing, Lo Han fits into the regiment of supporting healthy metabolic responses in the body.Peilin Guo, M.S., R.D., is the Executive Vice President for Jarrow Formulas, headquartered in Los Angeles, CA.
