Sweet and Healthy:
What’s New?

Fatty foods placed in the shape of a heart

Not all fat makes you fat

Fat has a bad reputation. Many of us fall for the error that all fat makes us fat – almost immediately after we have swallowed it in the form of rinds of bacon or nuts. But far from it. Because fat fulfils important functions in our body, and along with protein and carbohydrates, is one of our three main nutrients, the so-called macronutrients.

Don’t let yourself be infected by the omnipresent fat phobia: learn everything essential about fats and their importance for our bodies.

coffee and tea cups

Coffee or tea?

Coffee or tea? Which is healthier? Which tastes better? We could argue and discuss this for weeks and still not come to a final conclusion. After water, coffee and tea are among the most popular drinks worldwide. So literally everyone has an opinion about them.

Do you enjoy a wakeup coffee in the morning, or an afternoon tea to calm you down? Black coffee or milk coffee? Tea with or without milk, with some lemon juice or not? Preferences vary, but we are almost all united in enjoying these two great drinks.

We would like to take you on a little journey and explore the world of coffee and tea together.


The history of Low Calorie Sweeteners

Low calorie sweeteners have a long history of safe use, which dates back to the discovery of the first sweetener, saccharin, almost 145 years ago. Over the last century, many low calorie sweeteners have been developed for use in a variety of foods and beverages worldwide.

Low calorie sweeteners are among the most thoroughly tested food ingredients in the world, with a strong body of scientific evidence and extensive research supporting their safe use in foods, beverages, and as table top sweeteners.
