Low GI sugar process recognised by UN Food Systems Summit

Nutrition Innovation has been recognised at the United Nations Food Systems Summit for its Nucane process, which is being used to create low-GI sugar at a NSW mill.

Australian-owned company Sunshine Sugar congratulated its industry partner for the award. After teaming up with Nutrition Innovation in 2018, the Nucane process helped create Sunshine Sugar’s Low GI Sugar product.

Developed at the company’s Condong sugar mill, the process produces a ‘wholesome’ sugar that retains naturally occurring and beneficial antioxidants. 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.

Selected from nearly 2000 applications from 135 countries, Nutrition Innovation is amongst a group of winners who showcase inspiring, diverse and impactful solutions in improving access to healthy, sustainable food.

“It’s a testimony to not only our innovations, but all of our partners around the world,” said Founder and Chairman of Nutrition Innovation Dr David Kannar. “Our objectives have always been to create innovations, like Nucane, to solve global health and nutrition challenges.”

The United Nations Food Systems Summit was created to raise awareness of the critical role that agriculture and food systems play in achieving a sustainable future.
