Cereal Lovers simply fruit granolas
Our drive has always been to supply natural foods, without any artificial components to them, that will be a healthy alternative to other products currently available.
One of the key factors has been the gross overuse of sugar and the misconceptions that have evolved – I will attempt to detail them simply and succinctly.
I am a biochemist [the chemistry of the body] and studied under Prof. Norman Edson at the Medical University of Otago [who wrote extensive papers on the metabolism of ketone bodies, substances produced in excess by humans during starvation or undiagnosed diabetes] , and after graduation joined a large Pharmaceutical company who specialised in Diabetic drugs as well as others.
“Date Syrup”, Date syrup is rich in the monosaccharides glucose and fructose,[sugar, sucrose, is just this but has glucose and fructose bound together] and so most of its sugar content is absorbed into the bloodstream in the mouth, meaning that it raises the blood glucose levels and has 277 calories per 100 g serving
“Agave Syrup”, Agave nectar consists primarily of fructose and glucose [sugar, sucrose, is 50/50 fructose, glucose]. One source gives 47% fructose and 16% glucose; another gives 56% fructose and 20% glucose. The impact of agave syrup on blood sugar (as measured by its glycemic index and glycemic load) is comparable to fructose, which has a much lower glycemic index and glycemic load than table sugar (sucrose) and has 310 calories per 100 g serving.
This comparison can be taken across most other brands on the market most have more sugar [sucrose, or other forms as above] than special K.
