Straits Wholefoods: Sweetener

Straits Wholefoods has launched an all-natural organic sweetener harvested from the male flower stalks of the arenga pinnata tree. This sweetener makes for a healthy sugar that is low glycaemic, containing only half the glycaemic load of cane sugar and honey.

On top of that, the sweetener is rich in minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, sodium and copper. It consists up to 50 times more minerals than in white sugar, and up to three times more potassium than bananas. It is also rich in vitamins, such as vitamin C and the highly valued B12.

The sweetener is versatile in its applications, and can be used in any recipe to replace cane sugar, with its creamy caramel taste and a pleasant aroma.
