MIAMI, May 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Yacon Syrup, a new, all-natural sweetener from Aveya Beauty (http://aveyabeauty.com/), shows that the company is interested in all aspects of health and beauty, not just skincare. As an organic and vegan-friendly alternative to ordinary sweeteners, Yacon Syrup is an especially good choice for those with diabetes. More information on this versatile low-calorie sweetener is available at http://amzn.com/B00JKPU0FQ.

According to a Fast Facts sheet from the American Diabetes Association®, 26 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, while another 79 million have prediabetes. If current trends continue, by 2050 one out of every three American adults will be dealing with the disease. Therefore, the need to get serious today about prevention and proactive treatment cannot be understated.

Everyone loves the taste of something sweet, but diabetics must be more cautious. With diabetes, the body can't produce enough insulin to process sugar appropriately. Sometimes the body makes enough insulin, but the cells don't respond to it. Either way, the net result is too much glucose, or sugar, lingering in the bloodstream, which can have all kinds of unpleasant side effects.

For many years, artificial sweeteners have been pegged as a safe choice for people with diabetes. That logic is now under fire. For one thing, foods with artificial sweeteners may have larger quantities of other ingredients, bringing their total calories up. On the other hand, sugar alcohols, which are processed from sugar but have less potency, still raise blood sugar levels somewhat and can cause indigestion. Foods containing sugar alcohols are sometimes labeled "sugar-free," but from the perspective of someone with diabetes, that's misleading.

"My rule of thumb is that if my grandparents wouldn't recognize something as food, I'm wary of consuming it," commented Aveya Beauty President Darren Miller. "Produced in laboratories and having long, incomprehensible names, artificial sweeteners definitely fall in the category of 'not real food.' The human body doesn't know what to do with them, so they pass through undigested. That begs the question: why should anyone eat artificial sweeteners?"

Yacon Syrup isn't only for people with diabetes, though. It's also a vegan-friendly, gluten-free sugar and sweetener alternative. The maple-flavored sweetener contains no wheat, soy, dairy, or animal products, and is great to spread on pancakes, drizzle in oatmeal, mix in coffee or tea, or use as a baking ingredient. It behaves exactly like any other sugar syrup, but has far fewer calories.

Each month, the first 500 bottles of Yacon Syrup sold on Amazon will be available at an extraordinary discount. Health-conscious consumers, including those with diabetes or food allergies, are encouraged try this alternative sweetener sooner rather than later.
