 Why Perfect Sweet xylitol is a Great Option for a Sugar Substitute

sugar reaction

My daughter can not eat sugar at all she reacts to it. She can not touch it her skin becomes itchy. To eat it her throat hurts. We have tried xylitol and she can eat it with not reaction which is great. As we are new to this product and have only had a small amount to try we are happy to keep using this product. We have tried other products but they do not taste nice in cakes.  MW

"We received your packages today here in Onslow and wanted to make sure we thanked you.  My husband came home from work and read your note and said, "That is how you run a business!"  

We appreciate your call and the wonderful surprise packages we received."  Many thanks, Kim


     "  Thank you SO much for your emails and the wonderful recipes that you post also.  As a diabetic, these come in very handy indeed and my food journey is very much less narrow. I can’t use all of them, but the recipes with a lower carb count/less flour are just marvellous.  PLEASE keep them coming!  "



"Thank you Carolyn,   Your service is amazing, just one more reason for me to love your company."      Keryn

"My partner and I have replaced normal sugar with Perfect Sweet™ xylitol at home and at work. It works perfect in coffees and teas, and if you would like to indulge in a sugar free hot chocolate, here is the recipe:

All you need is a jar of baking cocoa, your favourite milk (I use A2 full cream milk), hot water and Perfect Sweet™ xylitol." - Dr. Nikola PMP


  • I heaped teaspoon of baking cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons of Perfect Sweet™ xylitol
  • Hot water
  • Milk


  1. Place 1 heaped teaspoon of baking cocoa and 2 teaspoons of xylitol into a mug.
  2. Add enough hot water to cover and dissolve both the cocoa powder and the xylitol.
  3. Stir until dissolved. Top up mug with your favourite milk and stir well.
  4. Place in microwave until hot (e.g. 1 min 30 sec).
  5. Enjoy your sugar free chocolate indulgence!


"I am so glad that we found out about SweetLife! I suffer from many stomach related problems, and now having Perfect Sweet™ xylitol has made my life so much better!" - Ranae B.




   Congratulations to you for giving people back ways to enjoy treats after giving up the really harmful stuff.


Kind regards, Karen

"I am a 65- year old woman and have just completed the Kokoda Track in 6.5 days.

I would not have thought it possible to be so fit as to complete such a challenge. Even though I trained very hard for 6 months, I do believe giving up sugar 2 years ago helped my body to be at its peak.

 It was then I discovered Perfect Sweet and was able to satisfy my sweet tooth without feeling guilty about my health. The products, using Perfect sweet as a sugar substitute, taste delicious and I was able to bring down my cholesterol count which had been bothering me for years. I now believe that sugar is detrimental to one’s health, so I was a bit concerned when on the Kokoda Track, my ration pack contained chocolates, lollies, biscuits and potato chips. There was no choice so I was forced to eat these items and my insulin levels rose leaving me on a permanent high. I didn't feel the consequences until I arrived home and went back to my healthy diet. I experienced the "sugar" down which has left me sluggish with a persistent headache; and, to make it worse, in the past week I have been so tired that I haven't exercised at all.

 I know this is only temporary but can't believe the effects of the sugar on my body so am looking forward to getting back to my "Perfect Sweet". - Judy.

“ SweetLife thank you for always providing me with such fantastic products -  it is greatly appreciated.”  - Lydia


Can I say thank you … I have been looking all over google for a recipe that uses Banana Flour for ages and I finally found it on your website." - Kind regards, Sally



"I have been using Sweetlife Xylitol and the Gum for a few years now, prior to this I had huge medical problems. However since my change to sweetlife from sugar my health has improved and my life expectancy also. I feel great and recommend the product for longer life." - Clyde 

"This is just a short note to tell you how utterly amazing your bake mixes are. We had friends over for dinner on Saturday and I whipped up some of the classic cup cakes for dessert. They were an absolute hit and there were none left by the end of the evening! Even my husband - who is quite fussy when it comes to cakes as he’s a massive sweet tooth - was amazed when I told him there was no sugar, flour or grain." - Hannah 


"My husband and 2 young children suffer from sucrose malabsorbsion. They can’t digest table sugar by itself or as an ingredient. After diagnosis, a freind recommend SweetLife. Life for my family is much more comfortable and I enjoy it even though I don’t suffer from the disorder. I find xylitol so versatile, yet infinitely better for you. It acts better in homemade ice cream than sugar, keeping it softer when frozen!" - Jessica


"I am happy to report that I’m converted to Xylitol! My husband even likes it and he is very hard to please!  He is a diabetic and I know this is better for him than sugar. I placed another order today. I find the sachets are perfect for the quick cuppa and are just the right amount. I have even lost a kilo or two by just switching them out! Bonus! Thanks again and Best wishes from a very happy customer." - J


"I just love Sweet Life. I can now have my sweet treats without guilt! I make the best sticky toffee puddings, muffins, chocolate slice, custards and even trifle all with Sweet Life and no one knows they are having a healthy treat! I would never be without it and that is a fact." - Sincerely, Paula


"Having been diagnosed with diabetes, I soon discovered Sweetlife on my journey to a sugar free existence. After having tried many sweeteners available in the supermarket, and knowing that many contained aspartame, finding Sweetlife was an absolute Godsend. It didn't contain all those chemicals and it also didn't leave an unpleasant aftertaste. I used Sweetlife for the first time in this healthy alternative for mayonnaise and I was so pleased with the result, I continued to use and experiment with it in the kitchen. I have been using Sweetlife for over a year now and will continue to do so as it fulfills all my sweet needs." - Kind regards, Sally
