Sunshine Sugar’s Low GI Sugar is gaining international attention since production began in the NSW Northern Rivers region in mid-2018.
The Central Sugars Refinery in Kuala Lumpur has secured significant tonnage of our all-Australian and Bonsucro-certified sustainable low GI sugar through Manildra Harwood Sugars, for ongoing supply in 2019.
Central Sugars Refinery is among Malaysia’s most popular brands, supplying sugar and sweetener ingredients for consumers, retailers, food service distributors, food manufacturers, culinary professionals and specialty markets.
Sunshine Sugar Chief Executive Officer Chris Connors attributed the enthusiastic response in Malaysia to “the quality and innovation that our low GI sugar represents”.
“Like many countries, Malaysia has increasing rates of obesity. Since introducing low GI sugar to consumer and industrial customers, the uptake has been strong, which is creating more market opportunities for our growers and mills here in Australia,” Mr Connors said.
Sunshine Sugar’s Low GI Sugar – which was developed in Australia – retains naturally occurring and beneficial antioxidants and is more slowly digested, absorbed and metabolised – resulting in a lower and slower rise in blood glucose.
