On the shelf: Capilano launches low GI honey
Following the launch of its lunchbox-friendly Choc Honey, Capilano has launched a low GI honey.
“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. Because this honey provides a slower and more sustained energy release, it is also an ideal alternative to sugar for consumers looking to lower their sugar intake,” said Ryan d’Almeida, CEO of Hive + Wellness, the company behind the Capilano brand.
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 honey influences the way it is digested in the body, and its GI rating. We are very pleased to have endorsement from the Glycaemic Index Foundation, who we have worked closely with during the development phase, so consumers can buy this product with absolute confidence,” d’Almeida said.
Low GI foods are more slowly digested, helping to keep blood glucose levels stable, whereas high GI carbs cause a sudden spike in blood glucose, causing blood sugars to peak and crash.
“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,” said Kathy Usic, CEO of the Glycaemic Index Foundation.
The Capilano Low GI Honey will be available in Woolworths and select IGA supermarkets around the country, with stocks already appearing on the shelf.
