Sugar levels within food and drink products has never been such a hot topic. The rise of groups such as Sugarwise and Action on Sugar along with high profile celebrity endorsements has helped raise the awareness and risks of consuming too much sugar. The government has started introducing ‘Sugar Taxes’ in certain sectors which has forced many manufacturers to reformulate or pass the levy on to the end customers. Consumers are now far better informed on the effects of sugar and how much they are putting into their bodies.
Stute Foods is a family company founded in Bristol, UK in 1969 and a Supporting Member of Sugarwise. Stute’s No Sugar Added Preserves are all Sugarwise certified and available in 8 varieties including Strawberry, Morello Cherry and Fine-Cut Orange Marmalade. The range offers consumers a great low sugar alternative to ordinary jams as they contain 90% less sugar and 30% fewer calories whilst still packed full of the best quality fruit. Stute has recently been awarded a 2017 2-star Great Taste Award proving that low sugar does certainly not mean low taste!
Laurence Hybs (Managing Director) explains, “We have been offering a No Sugar Added range of jams and marmalades to consumers for almost 50 years. Our products do not only appeal to diabetics and those required to the cut sugar out of their diet but also families who are aiming to live healthier lifestyles. There are other jams that claim to contain ‘less sugar’ but they still pack up to 42g of sugar per 100g of jam. Consumers can be completely confident that Stute’s range contain absolutely no added sugars”.
Currently Stute products are available in Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Waitrose and many other national retailers, health stores and pharmacies. For further information please visit their website: www.stute-foods.com.
