Conscious Food recently announced the debut of SugaVida™, a natural, safe, organic sugar substitute that sweetens naturally while providing significant health benefits. SugaVida offers a healthy, nutrient-packed alternative to processed sugar, high fructose corn syrup, stevia, agave and synthetic sweeteners for cold and hot drinks, snacks and for cooking and baking. For U.S. food manufacturers, SugaVida offers a finished sweetener ingredient with a lower melting point, which means substantial savings on energy bills. SugaVida is fully organically certified and is grown in a pesticide and herbicide free environment, providing food manufacturers with an opportunity to penetrate the rapidly growing US market for verifiably healthier food products. SugaVida is derived from the sap of the Palmyra palm tree. Flavorful and nutrient rich, SugaVida contains 15 essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, sodium and phosphorus—all of which are retained in SugaVida without the addition of preservatives or chemicals in the plant-based production process.
