OUR INGREDIENTS

Not all ingredients are created equal. Our products are made with natural, preservative-free ingredients. Therefore, they are best stored in the refrigerator or freezer. Information about our ingredients is not intended as medical or nutritional advice, as we all have different nutritional needs and some have sensitivities that may make certain ingredients or products unsuitable for certain individuals.

All our products are made in a dedicated gluten and peanut free facility. Please note that they are manufactured in a facility that processes almonds, macadamia nuts, pecans, sesame seeds and coconut.

Sweeteners

It is possible to have your dessert and be healthy too! In our humble opinion, the better the ingredients, the better the end result in both taste and health. At Sugar Free Please, we have worked hard to perfect recipes made with only 0 glycemic sweeteners and no starchy grains or legumes (that ultimately convert to sugar). Every recipe has been developed to stabilize blood sugar levels and be so completely keto friendly that our snacks will support and enhance the keto lifestyle. Our gluten free standard is also different than most. Starchy wheat is not replaced by more starch (think rice, potato and tapioca). We replace it with fibre and protein.

 

Here's a list of cornerstones to Sugar Free Please baking:

Inulin: So good for your digestive system! Inulin ferments quickly, feeding our healthy microflora. Very high in soluble fibre, inulin is a great aid against constipation. As well, all that fibre is bulky and imparts a great feeling of satiety, unlike traditional sugars which often leave us wanting more. A highly efficient cleanser, as inulin passes through the digestive system, it sweeps out toxins, fat, waste and cholesterol particles. Your heart, digestive and immune systems will thank you for indulging in this awesome sweetness. Another benefit to inulin is that it helps our bodies absorb calcium. 

Erythritol: Sugar Free Please uses only non GMO erythritol. Arguably the best sugar alcohol, it doesn't feed Candida or raise blood sugar levels and it's an antioxidant with cooling properties. Erythritol passes through the body without being metabolized. For this reason it has zero net carbs and zero calories. And, of course, this makes it easy on the digestive system than other sugar alcohols like xylitol.

Stevia: By now we all know stevia is an alternative to conventional sweeteners. Did you also know stevia has been shown to lower blood glucose and insulin levels in diabetics as well as lowering blood pressure? Stevia is expensive in its purest form. Therefore most is cut with carbohydrate-laden additives and/or other sugars, but you don't need to worry because Sugar Free Please uses pure stevia powder and alcohol free liquid stevia preparations.

Flours

As with sugar free ingredients, all gluten free baking is not created equal. Usually starchy wheat flour is swapped for tapioca or potato starch, rice flour, oats, buckwheat, cornstarch, chic pea flour and other high carbohydrate, blood glucose-raising flours. It is possible to forgo these starches, and instead use healthy flours to still enjoy wonderful meals, desserts and snacks. 

 

Here's a list of cornerstones to Sugar Free Please baking:

Almond Flour: Full of vitamins, almond flour is loaded with healthy fat. For those seeing red weight loss flags at the word "fat," here's the good news. Healthy fat properly taken, is the quickest and most reliable way to lose weight and sustain the loss! Studies show those on ketogenic diets (70% fat, 7% carbs in the form of low-starch veggies) lost over a third more weight in their first year than those on low fat, calorie restricted diets (less than 25% fat). Very low in carbohydrates, almond flour also has good, almost equal amounts of fibre and protein.

Coconut Flour: Organic and finely ground, our coconut flour is very high fibre, very low in carbs compared to grains, with about equal parts protein and fat. 

Chia Flour: A whopping 86% of the carbs in chia are fibre. It is also high in omega 3 fat, which is the most difficult to get and under-consumed omega fat in our culture. At Sugar Free Please we prefer to use chia soaked into a gel, and then dehydrated at low temperatures. This means that nutritionally, our crackers and granola are raw, but they are shelf stable and not goopy!
