Which good sugar substitutes does Damhert use?
It is important to eat enough slow sugars, these are starch products such as wholemeal pasta, bread and cereal products. Slow sugars give you long-lasting, healthy energy. Fast sugars, however, such as those found in biscuits and chocolate, are best limited. Fast sugars are quickly absorbed into the blood, resulting in blood sugar spikes. Fortunately, Damhert has chosen to replace fast sugars with good alternative sweeteners in their products, but also with their own sweetener Tagatesse:
1. Polyols such as maltitol, isomalt and sorbitol are sugar substitutes that are slightly less or as sweet as sugar. They provide fewer calories than sugar and have little effect on blood sugar levels.
2. Sweeteners that do not supply energy: saccharin, cyclamate, aspartame, acesulfame-K and sucralose. These sweeteners have no effect on blood sugar levels. They are many times sweeter than sugar, so only small amounts need to be used in products.
3. Fructose or fruit sugar provides as much energy as sugar and will affect the blood sugar level, but to a lesser extent than sugar. With 1/3 less fructose the same sweet taste as sugar can be obtained.
4. Tagatesse is a sweetener created from a blend of isomalt, fibre, sucralose and tagatose. The raw material Tagatose is a sugar extracted from milk by an enzymatic process. But despite being a sugar, it has a very low glycemic index, which means blood sugar levels will not rise much. So it is perfect for people who want or have to avoid sugar, but still like sweetness.
What is the difference between purple and red Tagatesse?
Within this range, you can find Tagatesse in different forms for baking or sweetening. All these products have a nice sweet taste, no chemical aftertaste, a low calorie and carbohydrate value, which makes them ideal for people who want or have to avoid sugar. But people on a low-carb or keto diet are also in luck, because the oligosaccharide and polyol values of all our sweeteners do not have to be included in the carbohydrate calculation. Because our bodies do not absorb them.
In addition to these benefits, Tagatesse No Sugars and Tagatesse 200g are ideal for baking and cooking. You can easily replace the sugar in all your cold and hot preparations with both Tagatesse sweeteners. Tagatesse sugar free has a 1:1 sugar ratio, whereas with our other sweeteners the amount of sugar needs to be halved. So with Tagatesse, you can easily make any dessert without sugar.
What are polyols? And what is the effect of glucemic index and blood sugar?
Polyols are sweeteners that taste very similar to sugar, without having an unpleasant aftertaste like many other sweeteners. They are also found in nature, for example in trees, plants, fruit and mushrooms. The best known types are xylitol, maltitol, erythritol and isomalt.
Polyols are poorly absorbed by the small intestine. They therefore leave the body through the faeces. As a result, they provide much less energy for the body than, for example, sugar. This is of course beneficial when you are on a diet and still have a sweet tooth from time to time.
With Damhert products you do not need to count the polyols in the total carbohydrate intake you are allowed per day. We will clarify this with an example. Say your favourite biscuit contains 14 grams of carbohydrates, 10 grams of which are polyols. You only need to count 4 grams of carbohydrates instead of 14 grams for this biscuit.
What is the Keto diet?
Keto" stands for Ketogenic diet, an extreme form of the low-carb diet. In short, it means that you eat large amounts of fats, a modest amount of protein and very few carbohydrates. But it is certainly not a question of 'eat as you please'. Ideally, on the Keto diet about 70 to 80 percent of your daily calories should come from fats, about 10 to 20 percent from proteins and about 5 to 10 percent from carbohydrates.
- 165 grams of fat
- 75 grams of protein
- 20 to 30 grams of carbohydrates (with a maximum of 50g)
Our Keto products are mainly all oils, nuts, seeds and spices. Of course, we also have biscuits in our range that are completely Keto proof (less than 5 grams per serving) and among the meat substitutes you also have a nice selection of keto veggies (less than 6 grams per serving). You can recognise the Keto products by the Keto logo or the Low Carb claim.
Why is fibre so important?
Various beneficial effects are attributed to a high-fibre diet. For example, a high-fibre diet will stimulate the intestinal flora and thus produce a smoother bowel movement. There are also indications that fibre protects us against cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Fibre also has a beneficial effect on cholesterol levels and blood sugar metabolism. Because fibre has a high satiety value, it helps to combat obesity. In short, fibre is indispensable in a healthy diet.
What exactly is gluten?
Gluten is the name of a group of proteins in cereals, consisting of two types: Gliandin and glutenin. Gluten intolerance, by the way, refers to intolerance to the gliandin protein. People with intolerance have difficulty digesting these proteins.
A gluten intolerance is often also accompanied by a dairy intolerance. That is why Damhert has a wide range of gluten and lactose free products.
The Dutch Coeliakie Vereniging has been committed to people with celiac disease since the 1970s. In order to offer consumers a safe choice, the NCV has developed a standard for suppliers of gluten-free foods. As a certified supplier, we are allowed to use the crossed grain trademark, which allows us to prove to consumers that we are a reliable supplier of safe products for the whole of Europe. We obtain our Gluten-Free certificate every year.
What is the difference between lactose intolerance and cow's milk allergy?
There is a big difference between lactose free and cow's milk free. Lactose is a sugar found in cow's milk, the so-called milk sugar. Most lactose-free products are made with cow's milk, but during the preparation process the lactose is broken down by adding lactase. This means that the milk sugars are broken down, but not the milk proteins.
In the case of lactose intolerance, you are sensitive to the milk sugars in a product. In the case of a cow's milk allergy, the body reacts allergically to the proteins contained in cow's milk. Damhert has products in its range that are Lactose free and/or Milk free. On the front of the Damhert packaging it is indicated whether the product is Lactose free by our blue claim. Whether the products are milk-free or not is indicated at the back of the packaging.
What is vegan?
The "vegan" logo is appearing more and more in supermarkets, but what does it actually mean? Vegetarians consciously choose not to eat meat, fish or gelatine. Vegans go a little further: they don't consume any animal products.
When is a product organic?
Anyone who produces food in a natural way is not allowed to use the term 'organic' just like that. Since 1 July 2010, this term has been legally protected. If you want to market your food as 'organic', you must strictly comply with all the legal provisions and you must register for an obligatory inspection. Our inspection at Damhert is carried out annually by Quality Partner, who are recognised by the competent authorities for the certification of operators active in organic production. This allows us to use the European BIO label and we have a BIO certificate.
