How healthy is the appltizer, grapetizer, peachtizer range? For health reasons Im on a low GI eating plan. And have been tested very sensitive to cane sugar and sweetners like aspartme (spelling) and can have xylitol and fructose in small quantity''s. The main aim to keep my blood sugar level stable. Does these drinks contain any hidden sugars other then cane sugar or cause blood sugar spikes? Thanks

Dear Tzzz
The Appletiser, Peartiser and Grapetiser range are made from fruit juices and are all classified as Low-GI. According to the Appletiser Website, Peartiser has a GI of 25, Red and White Grapetiser have a GI of 53 and Appletiser is listed as "low-GI" (no value given). Fruit juices like apple, grape and pear juice, naturally contain glucose, fructose and sucrose, so you must be aware of the fact that these products do have a high simple sugar content because they are made of fruit juice. No additional cane sugar or aspartame is added to these drinks. You will probably be able to drink these beverages in moderate quantities without causing your blood sugar levels to spike. Just keep in mind that the energy level of these fruits juices is quite high. For example Grapetiser contains 223 kJ per 100 ml, so if you drink a 750 ml bottle, then you would be ingesting 1673 kJ (or about 20% of your daily energy requirement if you are not slimming and 26,6% of your daily energy allowance if you are slimming).
