The concept of a sugar free cake or muffin has enthralled bakers, patissiers and home cooks for as long as baked goods have been around. But very often, sugar free cake and muffin recipes tend to rely on artificial sweeteners; sweeteners that do more harm than good. Sometimes, natural alternatives like honey or fruit products are substituted, however these still raise blood sugar levels and are usually very high in calories.

This is where SweetLife® comes in. With our sugar free cake and muffin recipes, you’ll be able to prove to your guests that a cake/muffin made without any of these harmful ingredients is just as tasty, if not more. We use Perfect Sweet® xylitol as a replacement for sugar as it is a healthy and natural option. This means that our recipes can also be used as diabetic friendly cake recipes! Xylitol looks and tastes just like sugar, but it doesn’t cause any of the common nasty side effects (bloating, Type 2 Diabetes, tooth decay and more) derived from sugar and artificial sweeteners.

  • Weight Loss

    Most of us want to lose weight at some point in our lives, and get fitter. Xylitol products make it much easier for you to whittle down your waistline because the natural sweetener has approximately 75% less carbohydrates and 40% less calories than sugar.

  • Healthy Living

    Xylitol is a perfect sugar free alternative for anyone who wants to lead a healthy lifestyle and feel good every day. It is one of the best presents Mother Nature can give our bodies and can be used in place of sugar and artificial sweeteners.

  • Diabetes

    Xylitol is diabetic friendly. The natural sweetener is metabolized without insulin, thereby creating a lower glycaemic effect. In fact it has a glycaemic index of just 7. Now compare that to sugar, which has a glycaemic index of 65.

  • Gluten Intolerant

    Don’t worry if you follow a gluten-free diet and still want to enjoy cakes, desserts, chewing gum and sweets. Just because you have a sensitivity to gluten doesn’t mean you have to miss out.
