SUSTA: Natural Sweetener Review and Giveaway

I received a box of SUSTA, a natural sweetener blend used as a sugar substitute.

Susta uses a natural blend of probiotics, prebiotics, vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Susta Ingredients

Insulin, fructose, natural flavors (orange peel-parts per million),Vitamin C, cinnamon extract, goji berry extract, bitter melon extract, grape seed extract, Vitamin B6, niacinamide, biotin, folic acid, chromium, selenium, and vitamin B12.

So, if you are still using artificial sweeteners, white table sugar or are tired of the bitter taste of stevia don’t try another artificial sweetener or go back to processed white sugar. Try Susta for optimum health!

Stevia is considered a natural sweetener, as is sugar, unfortunately.

When I had company over several people who were used to using artificial sweeteners in their coffee tried the Susta and loved it.¬†They stated that it wasn’t bitter like some of the others they have used. I tasted it myself and was very pleased.¬† My sister enjoyed it so much she went home with my entire box!

Susta contains fructose, but fructose is a natural occurring sugar found in fresh fruit. A matter of fact, it would take almost an entire box (50 packets) to equal the sugar in one apple. These small amounts will not effect your blood sugar as would high fructose corn syrup and table sugar. A matter of fact, it is the only sweetener endorsed by Dr. James R. Gavin III, former President of the American Diabetes Association.

Susta is sold in boxes of 50 packets (2 grams each), much like other sugar substitutes, and costs $5.49 per box. Each packet contains 5 calories.

Susta is chemical-free, gluten-free, wheat-free, woy-free, alcohol-free, yeast-free, caffeine-free egg-free, lactose-free, cholesterol-free and vegan.

Susta also makes Susta yogurt, found in local grocery stores.

Their latest product, just hitting the shelves is SustaBowl. SustaBowl is their spoonable version used for baking and whatever else you wish to sweeten.

They have a list of recipes on their website. I made their Peach Smoothie, but substituted the low-fat vanilla yogurt for non-fat Greek yogurt, as I did not have any Susta yogurt on hand, used a milk substitute, and double the Susta amount because my peaches were not sweet yet and Greek yogurt is not sweet at all. It was delicious! Рno bitter taste at all and a nice change from my usual protein shake.

Peach Smoothie

Check out their recipes! Of course, some which contain gluten would have to be reworked for those of you who are gluten-free dieters.  They also list the nutritional information compared with the same recipe made with sugar. Very interesting!

Susta can be found in many large chain grocery stores or can be purchased online at www.sustastore.com.

  1. I’m so worried about the direction our love ones are headed in nowadays. Watching Jamie Olivers food revolution on tv scared the thingies out of me. I suggest we all start cooking some healthy recipe like these at home if we’re going to fix this horrible situation. The ones on that site seem pretty easy, I tried last night and it’s the first time my family has eaten healthy in so long, I just feel great.

  2. Thank you very much for the information and for creating a good site. I have been hunting for savvy information on natural health and can put this information to practice. I have found it difficult to find honest information, as there are many web sites with useless posts. Please keep the good information coming!

  3. Your Website is very useful. Thank you so much for providing plenty of awesome content. I will bookmark your blog site and will be without doubt coming back. Once again, I appreciate all your work and also providing a lot awesome concepts for your readers.
