Diet Can Eat Rice, As Long as You Drink Using These Ingredients

A woman in Jakarta went viral sharing her success story of shedding weight from 107 kg to 76 kg. Despite following a diet since January 2023, she still consumes white rice. Typically, those undertaking a diet avoid white rice. So, why did she continue to consume it?

According to an interview with bodybuilder Ade Rai in a media report, he stated that the main adversary in a diet program isn't white rice but rather cooking oil and granulated sugar. Therefore, sweetened drinks and foods should be avoided during a diet program.

That is easy, as current trends show that people are starting to consume low-sugar foods and beverages. Research and Markets suggest The Global Reduced Sugar Food & Beverages Market size is expected to reach $79.5 billion by 2028, increasing at a market growth rate of 8.6% CAGR during the forecast period.


The rise in consumption of low-sugar foods and drinks demonstrates people's awareness to lead healthier lives. But what about individuals accustomed to sweet beverages like tea?

Global consumers of sweet tea are still numerous and steadily increasing. Statista records that the global tea market was valued at around 122.2 billion U.S. dollars in 2022 and is expected to reach 160 billion by 2028.


Observing the predicted rise in tea enthusiasts, one solution for them to enjoy their favorite drink while staying healthy is to use alternatives like Isomalt instead of granulated sugar for sweetening.

Isomalt is an odorless, white, crystalline, and low-hygroscopic substance. It has a taste similar to sugar but is less sweet. In a 10% solution, its sweetening power is 50–60% that of sucrose. Despite being less sweet, it offers a similar sweetness profile.

One of the advantages of using Isomalt is that it can be combined with intense sweeteners to create various sweetness profiles, thereby optimizing sweetness without overpowering flavor, a limitation of some other sweeteners.

Tea enthusiast can use this formulation to stay healthy and maintain their diet program: green tea leaf, cherry blossom, sakura, rose blossom, Isomalt, spearmint flavor, and honeysuckle flavor.
