Sunshine Sugar’s Low GI sugar will be available in ALDI stores across Australia from today, 29 September.
According to Sunshine Sugar, this particular sugar has been in high demand since the product featured in a United Nations award for best SMEs (Small Medium Enterprise) in the world as part of the Food Systems Summit 2021.
The ‘nucane’ process is an Australian innovation that has been implemented by “100% Australian owned sugar brand” Sunshine Sugar.
The wholesome sugar that retains naturally occurring and beneficial antioxidants is made at the Condong mill in the northern NSW Tweed Valley.
“Being low in GI (Glycaemic Index) means that it is more slowly digested, absorbed and metabolised – resulting in lower and slower rise in blood glucose.”
Sunshine Sugar CEO Chris Connors says: “Since the United Nations Award announcement we have had very strong interest from consumers across Australia. With ALDI coming on board as a national stockist, we can now offer Sunshine Low GI Sugar to people across the country who are actively seeking out healthier choices.”
ALDI’s motto ‘Good Different’ makes them a great fit for the national release of the Sunshine Low GI Sugar retail product given their commitment to supporting local industry.
“ALDI has a strong commitment to sourcing products from Aussie farmers, producers and manufacturers,” says ALDI Australia Merchandising and Buying Director Katherine Norris.
“We are proud to be working with our local producer, Sunshine Sugar, to bring such an innovative product to Aussie shoppers.”
