Lakanto: Sweetener for Diabetics & Candida Sufferers

I found lakanto when I started The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal my chronic yeast overgrowth. I was so happy to find something I could use as a sugar substitute to make cookies and cake. I’d gotten so used to not eating anything sweet, that tasting Lakanto was a treat! This sugar alternative does not feed harmful pathogens (i.e. GBS+, Candida) or make the blood acidic like normal sweeteners do. It is safe for diabetics.


  • Zero calories
  • Zero glycemic index
  • Zero additives
  • Safe for diabetics
  • No influence on blood sugar and insulin release
  • Perfect for those on a Candida Diet (i.e. B.E.D.)
  • 1-to-1 ratio with sugar — easy to measure and use

Lakanto is made from only two ingredients…non-GMO erythritol and luo han guo fruit extract.

#1) Erythritol

Lakanto Nutrition FactsThis sugar alcohol is naturally found in many foods (i.e. grapes, pears, mushrooms, soy sauce, cheese, wine, beer) and has been part of the human diet for thousands of years. What makes this brand of erythritol different than other sugar alcohols – and more harmonious for the digestive system – is that it’s made with a natural ferments the sugar in corn. Many people experience symptoms of diarrhea, bloating, and gas after they eat foods sweetened with sugar alcohol – this is primarily because those alcohols are hydrogenated and hard for the body to recognize and digest.

#2) Luo han guo

This sweet fruit has many health benefits as it’s anti-carcinogenic, regulates blood sugar, decreases oxidative stress, prevents tooth decay, is an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, inhibits tumor growth, and is a natural antihistamine.
