New generation of Ice Cream: Sweet and sugar free!

Today, I read about an article of a Singaporean guy starts a cool ice cream shop 'Sugalight', selling sugar-free ice cream. Totally impress as he dedicated sugar-free ice cream for his dad who suffers diabetes medication but he is an ice cream person. The secret behind sugar-free ice cream - Xylitol.

Xylitol is a sugar substitute, it is found in fibrous vegetables and fruit. Perhaps it has another function as well,  Xylitol is beneficial for dental health. With the correct ingredient and correct formulation, I believe a sugar-free ice cream will be definitely wide acceptable in future. The best part about xylitol is it is not about ice cream, it can be attached in desserts and I can't wait to try one! 

今日读了一篇新加坡開雪糕店 ‘Sugarlight',賣無糖雪糕的新闻。原來老板的父親患上糖尿病,每天都必須服用藥物控制血糖水平,但他喜歡吃雪糕等甜食,所以老板才研制又甜又不會高血糖的雪糕。秘诀在于自然的木糖醇,是玉米、蘑菇等果品、蔬菜自然製造的一種糖。木糖醇和白糖的甜度相似,也不會被口腔里的細菌發酵利用,因此也可以減少蛀牙的幾率。
