Do HUXOL sweeteners cause cavities?

In contrast to sugar, sweeteners do not produce any fermentable carbohydrates and do not build any acids that can damage teeth. Therefore, sweeteners do not cause cavities, but rather they reduce the risk of developing cavities and support good dental health in adults and children in a natural manner.

Are HUXOL sweeteners vegan and gluten free?

All HUXOL sweeteners are free of wheat components and are suitable for safe consumption by people with coeliac disease and gluten intolerance. All HUXOL liquid sweeteners are suitable for a vegan diet without sugar and gluten – however, our  HUXOL tablets are not vegan.

Do HUXOL sweeteners contain allergens?

HUXOL sweeteners do not contain any allergens such as nuts, soy or potato starch. The only exception: HUXOL tablets contain lactose.  

Why does HUXOL sweetener powder contain maltodextrin?

Maltodextrin is a carrier that is mixed with the sweetener to create a light and familiar dosage equivalent to that of sugar. By doing this, an ideal and simple dosage is achieved: 1 portion = 1 teaspoon.

What should be kept in mind when baking with HUXOL sweeteners?

When baking one should always keep in mind that sweeteners are significantly more powerful in sweetening than sugar – meaning that the amount of sweetener needed will be less than the required amount of sugar. Sweeteners deliver significantly less mass than sugar, which can have an effect on the volume of things like batter, dough and fillings. Sweeteners also do not have binding properties, thus they are unsuitable for all types of batter and dough. HUXOL sweeteners work best in yeast dough, shortcrust pastry as well as strudel dough.
