Enjoy the sweeter
things in life

Let’s face it, sugar gets a bad rap these days and we all know that it should be enjoyed in moderation. But, times are changing thanks to Sunshine Low GI Sugar.

Low GI sugar is a natural sweetener that is more slowly digested, absorbed and metabolised –resulting in a lower and slower rise in blood glucose that keeps you feeling fuller for longer.

Sunshine Low GI Sugar is made using the Nucane™process. Developed in Australia, this process ensures the naturally occurring and beneficial antioxidants are retained during the milling process that turns sugarcane into sugar crystals. It contains just one ingredient, 100% natural cane sugar, and has no additives or preservatives. Rich in naturally occurring minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium makes it suitable for all diets including gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian.

Enjoy the natural, sweet goodness of Sunshine Low GI Sugar in any food or beverage recipe in which sugar is used.

It all starts with the highest yielding crop in the world – our sugarcane plants. For more than 150 years, Sunshine Sugar has been producing sugar in the Clarence, Tweed and Richmond Valleys and continues to be Australian made and owned. Our cane growers have access to ideal weather and soil conditions for cropping, with up to 2.4 million tonnes of cane harvested each year. It’s little wonder we’re so passionate about every single grain of sugar.

Step Two:

Sustainable production

The Nucane process, originally developed in Australia, applies advanced production methodologies at the milling stage to produce a wholesome sugar that retains naturally occurring and beneficial antioxidants. Not only does the Nucane process result in a healthier sugar alternative, but it is also better for the planet, as it requires less resources than other sugar processing methods.

Food for thought:

Low GI Sugar is a food-grade raw sugar with a Glycemic Index of <55. As the sugar is being made, more of the naturally occurring polyphenols and flavonoids are retained in the crystals.

GI refers to the Glycaemic Index for a food and measures how carbohydrates affect blood glucose levels. The Glycemic Index is a numerical ranking of foods based on their immediate effect to raise blood sugar. It measures how fast the carbohydrate of a particular food is converted to glucose and enters the bloodstream.

Low GI foods produce lower, more stable blood sugar levels and therefore can help improve control of diabetes.

Low GI foods also help you to feel fuller for longer, which can help to control appetite and assist with weight management.

Sunshine Sugar is the only 100% Australian grown, made and owned manufacturer of raw and refined sugars.

Sunshine Sugar is owned by the grower-owned NSW Sugar Milling Co-operative and the Australian family-owned business Manildra Group. The partnership owns and operates three sugar mills in NSW at Harwood, Broadwater and Condong and a refinery co-located at Harwood.

When consumed, the low GI characteristics result in a lower and slower rise in blood glucose levels, a trait that is beneficial to people not only with diabetes, but more generally those who are conscious of healthier eating habits.

No. Sunshine Low GI Sugar is 100% natural cane sugar with no additives or preservatives.

Sunshine Sugar Low GI sugar has been successfully tested to be Low GI under the ISO 26642:2010 protocol at the independently accredited laboratory, Temasek GIRU. This lab is recommended as an approved testing laboratory by the Glycemic Index Foundation (GIF).

Through the Nucane™ technology, Sunshine Sugar’s Low GI sugar can be used in categories as diverse as beverages, fruit juice, canned products, flavoured milks, soy milk, yoghurts, breads, baked goods, ice-cream, confectionery, chocolates, and sauces.

At home, this sugar can be used as one-for-one replacement for raw and white sugar in beverages and baking.

Sunshine Low GI Sugar is a niche and premium product. As such it attracts fees payable to the developers of the Nucane™ technology, making it more expensive to produce. However, because it can be made at scale using existing facilities, it costs less when compared to many other boutique Low GI products.
