Q: Do any of your products contain palm oil?
A: No, we do not use palm oil in ANY of our products.
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. There is no way to be 'sugar free' without resorting to artificial sweeteners which have many negative health implications.
Q: Are your products a good choice 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. The combination of these means they have less of an effect on blood sugar levels than table sugar. We have many customers with diabetes who use our products successfully – see reviews. Deborah's (one of the founders) husband has diabetes. We do advise that you consume sparingly and talk to your health professional regarding any changes in diet of course.
Q: Why do your products have sugars listed on the label?
A: We do not add any sugar to our products. They only contain the sugars that are naturally occurring in the three fruits we use to sweeten; apples, grapes and carob.

They have also been show to increase appetite. All our products are sweetened with our Great Taste Award Winning Fruit Syrup which has a low GI (glycaemic index) and therefore less of an effect on blood sugar levels than refined sugar.
