Xylitol birch sugar from Finnish birch and beech wood

Xylitol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol, which however has nothing to do with ordinary alcohol. Xylitol serves as a sugar substitute for sweetening drinks and food as well as for preventing plaque and tooth decay.

Cheap xylitol is mostly made from glucose from corn - often also from genetically modified corn. In contrast, high-quality xylitol is produced in a complex process by the hydrogenation of wood sugar (xylose). Since birch bark is traditionally used in Finland, the name birch sugar has become common. Our xylitol is made from Finnish birch and beech wood.

Why we like Xylitol

We've tried a range of natural sweeteners over the years, and after discovering Xylitol, it's one of our favorite sweeteners.

Xylitol has the same color and sweetness as white sugar and has no taste of its own, such as coconut blossom sugar.

In addition, the birch sugar is good for the teeth, contains 40% less calories compared to ordinary granulated sugar and has a low glycemic index.

Disadvantages are the much higher price. In addition, birch sugar, when consumed excessively, has a laxative effect and is toxic to dogs (see security alert).

Our Xylitol Birch sugar from Tautona

Tautona Xylit is of very high quality and is obtained from birch and beech wood from Finland. It is a 100% pure, white, granular product (like granulated sugar).

Due to the birch bark process, xylitol is not a raw food product.


Xylitol looks and tastes like sugar. It is used 1: 1 like regular sugar, for example in hot and cold drinks, cakes and desserts. Since yeast xylitol can not metabolise, it is not suitable for yeast baked goods.

For home-made chocolate and raw cakes, it is advisable to grind the crystals to a powder (with blender or coffee grinder), thus achieving a more even result.

Xylitol belongs to the class of sugar alcohols, which can be laxative when consumed excessively. To avoid bloating and diarrhea, start with a small amount of about 1 tbsp a day to allow the body to adjust.

Security Alert

Xylitol is toxic to dogs because it causes them to rapidly lose their blood sugar and seizures. This is not unusual, because other foods for humans are toxic to dogs. Cats do not appear to be affected by xylitol.

Healthy fruit sweetness with a low glycemic index Particularly rich in beta-carotene, iron, vitamins B1 and B2 Versatile ingredient for cakes, desserts and ice cream It has been one of our favorite foods since we first met Lucuma powder.

Its biscuit-like sweetness makes it a favorite in (raw food) cakes, desserts and chocolates. We like to add it to our creams and ice creams and as a gourmet ingredient for all sweets - the wonderful aroma and the biscuit-like sweetness of the Lucuma powder refine every dessert. In Peru, the yellowish-orange fruit is the most popular flavor for ice cream. What makes our Lucuma powder special? Free from pesticides and agrochemicals Raw food quality Gentle processing Best taste Lucuma from SamaraNatura is free from pesticides and agrochemicals. The Lucuma pulp is dried in a solar drying system at low temperatures according to raw food quality standards, then gently ground and then sieved. Although lucuma thrives in other tropical regions as well, the taste of the fruits that grow in the Peruvian highlands is rated even better. This is where our Lucuma powder comes from. The taste of the beautiful, dark yellow powder is reminiscent of maple syrup and cashews. How to use Lucuma powder is an extremely versatile and tasty ingredient that goes well in ice creams, baby food, yogurts, cakes, chocolate and desserts and can be used for Lucuma mousse, pudding or parfait. It is ideal as a sweet flour for tarts, cakes and pastries and tastes great in smoothies, nut milk and other drinks.

Carob is a legume that grows on the carob tree, a wild, evergreen tree native to the Mediterranean, and has been used as a sweetener and nutritious natural snack for thousands of years. Carob was well known to the ancient Greeks, and they spread the seeds of this plant in Greece and Italy. Carob is naturally sweet and fewer sweeteners are required when used in recipes. It has a low glycemic index, is low in fat and extremely nutritious, high in calcium, protein and fiber. Benefits of carob powder Little familiar to Carob thinks it's a healthy version of (high sugar and high fat) chocolate, but it's so much more.

Organic Mesquite Powder
Mesquite powder - sweetener from the desert Mesquite was a traditional staple food of the indigenous people of the arid regions of North and South America. Today, mesquite powder is being rediscovered as a nutritious and tasty food and used all over the world. Mesquite has the sweet, wild taste of the desert with a hint of caramel and is versatile. Mesquite has a protein content of approx. 14% and is rich in calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc and the amino acid lysine, which is rarely found in a grain-heavy diet. Mesquite is 25% fiber and has a low glycemic index. Mesquite flour is naturally gluten-free. Why We Love Mesquite Powder Mesquite has a sweet, malty taste that is similar to carob, but with a caramel flavor. The full-bodied taste and aroma goes well with vanilla and chocolate and it gives sweet treats a delicious maltiness. Mesquite can be mixed with nut milk, is an excellent ingredient in smoothies and is delicious sprinkled on ice cream. An exquisite malty chocolate can be made with it, and mesquite can also be used as a partial aromatic substitute for flour. It is a wonderful food to experiment with SamaraNatura organic mesquite powder Our mesquite powder is made from the whole pods of the mesquite tree, which are gently dried and then processed into a flour or powder. Since there is no guarantee that the temperature will always remain below 42°C during drying, we refrain from using the term raw food quality. How to use Mesquite is a delicious ingredient for cakes, desserts, smoothies, ice cream and homemade bread. It tastes particularly good in combination with cocoa and maca.

Agave Syrup Organic
Premium agave syrup in raw food quality What is agave? The agave is a cactus-like plant from Mexico. Agave syrup is a delicious sweetener made from the juice inside agaves that are at least eight years old. The Mexicans traditionally collected the sweet juice ("aguamiel") from various agaves in order to make sweeteners and special drinks for celebrations. Why buy agave syrup? Agave syrup is a vegan alternative to honey and has a pleasant taste, like a mixture of honey and maple syrup. It can be used in many ways as a sweetener. Only the very gently processed agave syrup like ours has a low glycemic index and is only slowly absorbed into the bloodstream. It is therefore particularly recommended for people who are sensitive to sugar. What makes our agave syrup special? Most conventional agave syrups, including those from organic farming, are made from 3-6 different agave species and have been heated up and pasteurized, as the juice of the agave spoils quickly after it has been removed. The contained healthier multiple sugars (polysaccharides, mainly in the form of inulin) are converted into simple sugars. They have lost a large part of their nutrients! Our agave syrup is obtained exclusively from the Salmiana agave, is processed very gently and at low temperatures and is therefore of the best quality available on the market. No pesticides or other agrochemicals are used in cultivation. The syrup is produced in special vacuum containers in which the water it contains evaporates at very low temperatures. The valuable vitamins, minerals and enzymes are largely preserved and available for our body. Because our agave syrup is 100% natural, it has a stronger taste and a darker color than commercially available concentrated juices. How to use in the daily diet? Agave syrup is characterized by a high, neutral sweetness. It enhances the aroma and is easily soluble in cold and warm dishes and drinks. Ideally suited for baked goods and due to the low tendency to crystallize for the production of jams and jellies.

Yacon Syrup Organic
Yacon Syrup Organic - Delicious, prebiotic sweetener Yacon is grown in the high mountain valleys of the Andes and has a dense root system that is full of minerals, vitamins and complex vital substances. The freshly squeezed juice of the root is a gift from nature and has been enjoyed by the Andean peoples for centuries. The special thing about Yacon is the quality of its sugar, which is mainly in the form of oligofructose (or fructooligosaccharides). Oligofructose cannot be used by the digestive enzymes and therefore hardly causes any calories and protects the blood sugar level. In addition, as a prebiotic, oligofructose supports a healthy intestinal flora. An ideal sweetener for diabetics, health-conscious and diet-conscious people alike. Why we love Yacon Syrup Yacon tastes delicious and has half as many calories as honey, for example. And on top of that, its sugar hardly increases the blood sugar level and avoids strenuous blood sugar highs and lows. Yacon syrup is also significantly less glycemic than honey, agave or maple syrup. The oligofructose in Yacon also supports the beneficial bacteria in the colon, thereby improving digestion and absorption of nutrients. The indigestible sugar thus serves the beneficial bacteria as prebiotic food. SamaraNatura Yacon Syrup Our yacon syrup comes from traditional varieties from the Peruvian Andes and is 100% natural, grown without pesticides and agrochemicals. It is produced at low temperatures, which guarantees that the syrup retains a very high quality of nutrients and enzymes. This yacon syrup is thickened from yacon juice in a special vacuum process at low temperatures of 45°C. Since this yacon syrup can only be kept for a relatively short time without pasteurization, it is pasteurized at 70°C for 3 minutes. The syrup is therefore not raw food, but processed very gently, which means that the valuable nutrients and enzymes in the roots are largely retained. How to use Yacon syrup can be used in many ways as a sweetener. It can be used to sweeten desserts, drinks and smoothies. For salad dressings, we like to mix the syrup with vinegar, as a substitute for balsamic vinegar, which usually contains a lot of sugar. The sweetness of the syrup is less strong than the sweetness of sugar, honey or agave syrup. To support a healthy intestinal flora, 1 teaspoon is sufficient daily. For a better shelf life, we recommend storing the yacon syrup in the refrigerator.

This is promising news for those concerned with health issues such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer, and gallstones. Our coconut palm sugar is made ​​from 100% coconut nectar from Coco Nucifera. For the health conscious consumers and diabetics, it can be considered to be one of the best sweeteners.

In terms of people, health and environment, coconut sweeteners provide benefit every step of the way. Lifting communities out of poverty, bringing much needed nutrients into the human body in a mode (sweets) that often does just the opposite, and in preserving rainforest, protecting fragile tropical biomes and indeed promoting the return of devastated land back to balance. SamaraNatura Coconut Sugar Our coconut blossom sugar is 100% natural, organic, unbleached, free from additives and artificial flavouring.

Coconut palm sugars are not produced from the same palm species as is used for the production of palm oil. Our granulated coconut palm nectar is not raw. By raw, we mean processed at temperatures under 42°C. We prefer to have higher quality and let remove as much moisture from the coconut sugar as possible. This results in a drier final product if compared to other coconut sugars in the market. We feel this allows more flexibility for the end user and means you are not buying water weight. Use of Coconut Sugar Coconut sugar melts easy in hot and cold beverages, is delicious in desserts, smoothies, and pastries. A small spoonful of our rich caramel coconut sugar is a healthy treat to overcome cravings and gives instant energy. Cocnut sugar can be used 1:1 as a replacement for cane sugar in any recipe.
