Eugene, OR- Diabetic Friendly Fruit Bars Only 70 Calories a Piece – Looking for a frozen treat that is easy on your waistline and doesn’t send your blood sugar on a roller coaster ride? Then look no further. From the makers of America’s most popular dairy-free ice cream comes the world’s first agave sweetened frozen fruit bars. Made with imported, organic agave syrup and fortified with fiber from chicory root to prevent over-indulging, So Delicious® Agave Sweetened Mini Fruit Bars are fat free and contain no dairy, soy, gluten or coconut milk. …
These creamy, portion controlled novelties weigh in at only 70 calories per serving with 3 grams of fiber and just 13 grams of sugar.
According to a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, agave’s Glycemic Index (GI) value is five times lower than table sugar’s, making it an ideal choice for diabetics or anyone seeking to reduce their sugar intake. Studies have shown that high GI foods make you hungry again faster because your body burns them rapidly.
To the delight of its customers, Turtle Mountain uses agave syrup to sweeten a number of other products, including Purely Decadent® coconut milk ice cream and So Delicious® coconut milk ice cream novelties. “I have to limit my sugars and thought my one comfort food was gone,” says consumer Sally Thompson. “Until I discovered Turtle Mountain’s low sugar offerings. I love that they use agave!”
“We received extensive feedback from consumers asking for portion controlled desserts with lower glycemic impact,” says John Tucker, Vice President of Technology. “With agave sweetened fruit bars you can enjoy something sweet without sending your blood sugar sky-rocketing.”
The 2.3 ounce frozen treats come four per pack and are available in the following flavors: Orange Passion Fruit, Raspberry and Strawberry. Suggested retail price for So Delicious® Agave Sweetened Mini Fruit Bars is $4.99 per box and will be available nationally at Whole Foods Markets and other natural food retailers in April.
