Best bee-lieve there’s a new Low GI sweetener

Capilano launches a Low GI Honey that gives Australians a sweet option with reduced amount of sugar.

“We are delighted to make honey more accessible to people on low GI diets by releasing this specially selected blend of 100% Australian premium eucalypt honey,” says CEO Of Hive + Wellness, Ryan d’Almeida.

“Because this honey provides a slower and more sustained energy release, it is also an idea alternative to sugar for consumers looking to lower their sugar intake.”

Capilano Low GI honey has been tested low GI (42) by an independent laboratory, using approved methodology based on the international standards for testing.

“The naturally occurring sugar profile of this specially selected 100% Australian honey influences the way it is digested in the body, and its GI rating,” explains Mr d’Almeida.

“We are very pleased to have endorsement from the Glycemic Index Foundation, who we have worked closely with during the development phase, so consumers can buy this product with absolute confidence.”

Glycemic Index Foundation CEO, Kathy Usic explains, “Australians on low GI diets often face a frustrating and confusing quest to find natural sweeteners that are not only healthy but ones they can enjoy.

“We welcome this delicious new honey from Capilano, which has been independently tested and certified Low GI with a rating of 42 compared with other honeys and sweeteners that can have a medium GI over 60.”

Mr d’Almeida says Capilano Low GI Honey would be available in Woolworths and select IGA supermarkets around the country, with stocks already appearing on shelf.
