Sweeteners replace sugar . They sweeten foods but without providing practically any calories to the body. For this reason they are very useful in diets to lose weight or for people who suffer from diabetes or other pathologies that do not allow the consumption of common sugar. The use of sweeteners also prevents tooth decay since they do not have the negative effect on tooth enamel that sugar does. Stevia, for example, also has a low glycemic index , so it can be suitable for celiacs.
