“Xylitol is a naturally occurring alcohol found in most fruits and veg. It’s a low-kilojoule alternative to sugar with a low glycaemic index, resulting in a slow rise and fall in blood sugar levels. Almond flour is a nutritious flour substitute due to its high monounsaturated fat and moderate protein content. Plus, almonds are rich in vitamin E, B2, calcium, fibre and magnesium. Eggs are a great source of high-quality protein and the yolk is a source of vitamin A, B, D, iron and zinc,” says dietitian and ADSA spokesperson, Maryke Gallagher.
