By changing lifestyle and decreasing physical activities as well as some problems such as overweight , blood pressure and heart diseases , it is essential to produce low calorie and sugar free products .
Nowadays , by increasing people awareness , food producers have forced to produce some low fat , low sugar , low salt goods but with more fiber . This kind of diet can prevent some diseases . “The more energetic, the more sugar”!! Therefore, we must pay more attention to sugar free and low calorie food products . It is suggested to decline consuming ” sucrose ” or sweet products because of high calorie and harmful effects on human body .
The crystal white substance that we know as ” sugar ” , is a processing substance which makes from sugar cane or beet . The sugar liquid of sugar cane or beet , changes to pure sucrose after separating all vitamins , proteins , enzymes and all nutritious , useful products in factory . sugar makes the immune system of body weak against all diseases . After eating sweet products, white blood cells will work badly. Also , from 2 to 5 hours , the body will be ready to welcome each kind of virus or bacteria . Sugar doesn’t have any vitamin , fiber or minerals which human being ‘s body cannot digest or absorb it .
If you want to crack molecule structure of sugar , you have to use dissolving minerals in body such as calcium and magnesium .
” The more sweet , the more calcium will release from the body !! ” , finally, will cause to ” Osteoporosis ” and the balance of minerals in human body like calcium , magnesium , potassium , sodium will put into disorder . Sugar decreases the amount of chromium and copper in body. It makes disorder to absorb calcium and magnesium. It will increase the amount of triglycerides and cholesterol .Also , it will hurt kidneys and it is a main factor to make stone in kidneys . It is main factor of cancers such as breast cancer , prostate , colon , rectum .
it will cause poor eyesight , make narrower blood vessels , heart disease as well as heart attack . Sugar will cause bad effects on teeth (for example make hole on teeth) , bleeding gum, damaging bones , losing teeth , arthritis , asthma , the cause of Alzheimer disease which it begins with small distractions at first . It means that, more than half of middle-aged people on earth will have Alzheimer disease by 25 years. Consuming sugar for a long time will cause diabetes and overweight . Nowadays, overweight is one of the main factors of preventable deaths. Genetically factors affect on overweight but these elements cannot only justify this epidemic disease. Then, the diet determines whether a person will be fat in the future or not . The world Health Organization (WHO) concluded that , more than 30 percent middle east people have overweight . In Iran , 8.8 percent of children , 4.5 percent of teenagers have overweight . Also, 22 percent children and 30 percent teenagers in US have overweight, too. This procedure is increasing in recent years. The rate of overweight among new generation is doubled. This is a main reason to prevent of overweighting. Diabetes is a metabolic disorder. In this case, human body cannot produce insulin. Human body resists against insulin. At last , the level of sugar in blood will increase . In 2000 , diabetes type 2 was 2.8 percent for all ages . It is estimated this rate will reach to 4.4 percent in 2030 and diabetic people (type 2) will be 336 million people in 2030. 6 to 10 percent of Iranian people have this disease and if we consider persons who are at risk of this disease , this percent will be considerable . We must change our lifestyle. It includes suitable diet , doing exercise and using drugs that decline sugar of blood. According to drugs ‘ side effects , researchers are encouraged to discover new ways to control this disease and its side effects .
As we mentioned the problems above, it is suggested that, we must decline using sugar or sugar substitutes to decrease sugar of blood as well as human body’s calorie which is useful for fat and diabetic people .
This company is one of pioneers in this industry. It is the biggest producer sugar free products, healthy and diet food in Iran. After a lot of investigating , eventually , in 1996 , we succeeded to produce a various collection of healthy and sugar free products as ” Kamvar ” trade mark . Generally, sweeteners divide to four main groups:
1.Natural sweeteners : they have long expiration date and include malt , brown rice syrup , palm sugar , fructose , fruit thick syrup , honey and sugar of maple .
2.purified sweeteners : include white sugar , brown sugar , sugar powder , corn syrup and dextrose .
3. Sweeteners and mass multipliers : most of them are alcoholic sugar which include Isomalt , Mannitol , Sorbitol and Xylitol .
4.Strong sweeteners : which are called low- calorie and innutritious sweeteners , too.
They divided in two groups: Natural and industrial. The strongest and the most important industrial sweeteners are: Acesulfame Potassium , Sucralose , Aspartame , Saccharin , Alitame and cyclamate .
One of the strongest , the most natural and important sweeteners is ” Stevioside ” .
Kamvar ‘s Sweeteners :
1. Stevioside (stevia)
1. stevioside : this kind of sweetener is natural syrup from stevia plant . The height of stevioside is one meter. The age of this plant is maximum 5 years. It has sweet leaves. It belongs to South America. It cannot tolerate cold weather . Stevioside powder has natural smell and flavor like sugar. This powder is 300 times sweeter than sucrose . Also, this substance is stable in high temperature. It cannot be disintegrated in human body. Absorbing nutritious stevioside in human body is very low. We can use this powder as a sweetener without harms of sugar in sweet products and confectionaries . Stevioside doesn’t have enough calorie and doesn’t absorb in digestive system . Therefore, it’s suitable for diabetic persons. Stevioside , declines growth of oral bacteria . It will prevent tooth decay.
In 2007 , a common committee included experts of World Health Organization (WHO) as well as Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) suggested that stevioside is a noncancerous sweeteners . The dose of usage steviol (stevia) is 4 milligram (mg) and 12 mg , SUA 350 per kilogram (kg) of body weight . Stevia , doesn’t have any negative effect on absorbing food or changing Its form or absorbing essential nutrients such as Amino acids , vitamins and minerals . In 2006 , Kamvr company knew stevioside in Iran for the first time . After a lot of research , we discovered its advantages and we succeeded to obtain product license from Ministry of health and medical education of Iran . Our company took a new step to produce healthy sugar free and diet products in Iran .
Isomalt , is less sweeter than sucrose but Its taste is like sugar . It is used as sweetener in food. kamvar company uses this substance in all sugar free products instead of 99.8 percent sugar . It will cause some physiological effects as we mention below :
Intestinal enzymes of human body unable to hydrolyze sustainable links of Isomalt . So, absorbing Isomalt process in small intestine will be done slowly . Human body receives only 50 percent energy from Isomalt . In other words, the calorie of Isomalt is half of sugar (2 kilo calories). Also, Isomalt is a substance with low glycemic index that never causes to overweight .
2. Improving intestines’ actions
This substance has a low digestibility carbohydrate and It works similar to dietary fibers . In fact, it doesn’t absorb by intestine. After taking Isomalt , food ingredients in small intestine are richer than sugar which is taken , because the sugar absorbs by small intestine as hydrolyzed enzyme , rapidly . The osmotic pressure increases by intestine because of unabsorbed Isomalt molecules. A lot of water enters inside intestine and makes it more watery than before . Taking 20 – 30 grams each day can prevent you from diseases such as constipation, hemorrhoids , anal fissures and it will improve intestinal activity . It protects you from intestine cancer .
3. Prevention of tooth decay
Isomalt intermolecular forces don’t break up easily. It doesn’t ferment ate by bacteria easily. It doesn’t make the mouth environment acidity. So , when you take it , the PH of your mouth doesn’t decrease a lot . According to food and drug administration ‘s ( FDA ) report in 2003 , taking Isomalt unlike sugar doesn’t cause tooth decay . Also, it results mouth- watering. It will repair decay’s teeth on early stages .
4. Blood sugar decreasing
Glycemic response in Isomalt is 9 , in sucrose ( sugar ) is 68 , in glucose is 100 and the measure of insulin response for sucrose is 43 , for glucose is 100 and for Isomalt is 6 . The measure of Isomalt in two indexes is less than sugar. After taking Isomalt , glucose releases in blood slowly . Releasing insulin in blood will decline . Unlike sugar consuming, blood sugar and insulin graph are close to base . It doesn’t change so much. It will be recommended to diabetic persons.
This substance is 200 times sweeter than sugar!! It has a suitable stability and resistance temperature. It goes out from the body without digestion and it has no calorie .
WHO, FAO and JECFA organizations have confirmed this sweetener as non cancerous substance. Taking 15 milligram for each kilogram of body weight is allowed . This measure of consuming is confirmed by USFDA and JECFA.
Sucralose , is a non – calorie sweetener which is derived from sugar . It’s 600 times sweeter than sugar. A large amount of sucralose will excrete and a little absorbs by tissues , organs , and finally will excrete by urine. We were searching for sucralose on more than 100 articles. It is proved that it’s healthy and safety. So far, there aren’t any reports about side effects of this substance such as tooth decay , increasing sugar levels in diabetic persons , genetic changes , cancer , immunological problems , disorders of nervous system or birth defects .
Sucralose sweetener is confirmed by FDA, JECFA and permitted for pregnant and nursing mothers. Furthermore , oral bacteria don’t recognize sucralose as a food source . Thus, it won’t cause to tooth decay. The dosage of sucralose is 15 milligram for a kilogram weight of body each day. Therefore , Kamvar dietetic , healthy and sugar free products have beneficial and physiological properties unlike sugar :
1.These products don’t increase sugar of blood ; they are suitable for dietetic persons .
2. They’ll control fatness.
3. They never cause tooth decay.
