Therefore they also contain a reduced intake of calories and are really greedy so they can also be included in a low-calorie diet .

* You can also use another type of sweetener that is suitable for cooking, the quantities must be adapted to its sweetening power bearing in mind that xylitol has the same sweetening power as ordinary sugar.
