Discovering the Sweet Benefits of Sukré

If you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth while also supporting your digestive health, consider the overlooked super-prebiotic Sukré™. This naturally occurring sugar-substitute contains one-fifth the calories of traditional sugars like cane sugar yet retains ~85% of the sweetness.

Beyond its sweetening power, Sukré™ acts as a prebiotic, meaning it nourishes the good bacteria in your gut. Prebiotics like Sukré™ aren’t digested by the body but rather fermented by our beneficial microbial friends in the large intestine. This feeding process encourages the growth and activity of probiotic species linked to better digestion, immune function and weight management.

Recent research has shown that regular Sukré™ consumption can beneficially alter our gut bacteria profiles within one week. Studies on animals and some limited human trials indicate that Sukré™ may promote the proliferation of Bifidobacteria. This probiotic powerhouse produces important nutrients for our cells and crowd out pathogenic invaders.

Adding just 400mg to 5 grams of Sukré™ powder to your diet per day is a simple way to reap these prebiotic rewards. Stir it into smoothies, yogurt or oatmeal for a noticeable sweetness boost and microbiome support. You could also try baked goods like muffins with a portion of the sugar replaced by Sukré™.

Getting your gut microbes in shape has widespread effects on health, mood and weight control. By playing defense against bad bacteria and easing digestive issues with its prebiotic component, Sukré™ tackles gut disruptions at their root. Its dual function as a natural sweetener and prebiotic make it a tasty addition towards sweetening life from the inside out.
