Gimme some Shugr!

I posted a while back about a new sugar free sweetener called Shugr. Well, just minutes ago they announced that Shugr is now available in 5X and 10X styles. This will really aid in baking operations. To quote from their news release " Shugr 5X and Shugr 10X are the next important steps in our drive to bring the extraordinary benefits of Shugr to commercial manufacturers so they can offer natural, safe, and more healthful products to consumers," said Fred E. Tannous, co-chairman and CEO of Health Sciences Group, Inc. "Many such manufacturers have long sought a natural, zero-calorie replacement for cane sugar or other sweeteners in their products. Because of its great taste, natural profile, low glycemic index and excellent cooking and baking qualities, Shugr is expected to become their sweetener of choice."

Go over and take a look at their site. Maybe there's something about this sweetener.

Some may ask, why I have become an unofficial spokesperson for Shugr. Well, I have friends and family members affected by diabetes. Anything that will make their lives, and the lives of thousands of other people, better should be worth a second look.
