Q: How is Fruit Syrup different from other sugar alternatives on the market?
A: Fruit Syrup is a Great Taste Award winning product and we have lots of customers who have switched from stevia mainly due to the taste. Stevia has a bitter aftertaste whereas Fruit Syrup tastes just like sugar (if not better!) The crystalline fructose products you can buy such as Fruisana or Fruit Sugar are actually 100% processed fructose made from sugar beet and not fruit.

Q: Is Fruit Syrup high in fructose?

Q: Are your products suitable for diabetics?
A: All our products are sweetened only with Fruit Syrup which is made 100% from fruit and contains only the naturally occurring sugars in the three fruits used; apples, grapes and carob.

We have many customers with diabetes who use our products successfully – see reviews.  Deborah's (one of the founders) has diabetes. We do advise that you consume sparingly and talk to your health professional regarding any changes in diet of course.
