Ultimate Baker recently launched a range of Kosher-certified naturally colored xylitol baking accessories for the diabetic market. Xylitol is an FDA approved sugar substitute that has a very low glycemic index and does not spike blood sugar or insulin.
Craft blended with all-natural fruit and vegetables, Ultimate Baker xylitol is made from 100 percent plant fiber and is designed specifically for use by diabetics. Xylitol is a natural occurring polyalcohol found in most plants, fruits, vegetables and hardwoods. Xylitol almost perfectly mimics the natural sweetness of sugar, while having 40 percent fewer calories.
In addition, though xylitol is technically classified a carbohydrate, xylitol is a low-carb substance due to its minimal impact on blood sugar levels. Studies have shown that xylitol carries a glycaemia index rating of 7, as opposed to the 60–70 rating carried by normal sugar.
Ultimate Baker offers a growing assortment of natural baking and cake decorating products intended for professionals and home chefs alike. An extended variety of colors, sugars, glitters, luster dusts and flour options ensures that every baking artist will have what they need on hand to perfect both baked and confectionary creations.
“Our goal is to create high quality products that are both visually appealing while free of the harmful synthetics and preservatives which are dominant across the baking industry. Xylitol is a product we’re just as proud to serve our families as we would all of our customers,” said Sue-Ellen Cutler, VP of New Product Development.
With the CDC estimating that over 100 million people now live with diabetes or prediabetes in the U.S. alone, development of safe, natural cake decorating alternatives is rapidly becoming crucial.
