Nutritional Info – Sugalight Ice Cream

Video Best ice cream for diabetic

Nutritional Info

The rate of obesity and Type-II Diabetes is set to explode globally. Among Singaporeans adults, already more than 1 in 10 is diabetic and the numbers are expected to increase dramatically. The main contributing factors are a diet high in simple sugars and carbohydrates as well as a lack of exercise.

The premise behind Sugalight is that indulgences like ice cream need not be highly loaded in sugars and fats. You can enjoy low-fat and sugar-free desserts as well.

Our policy on added sugars:

Whereas we do not add in sugars to the ice cream base, some naturally occurring sugars in the flavouring material is unavoidable. These include:

  • Very Berry Drizzle (minimal sugars from the actual fruits themselves, we do not use sugar-laden jams / concentrates)
  • Fantastic Dark Chocolate (minimal sugar added mainly from the Dark Chocolate added, which adds less than 0.5tsp of sugar to each scoop of ice cream)
  • Durian flavour (sugars found naturally in the durian fruit)
  • Salted Gula Melaka (sugars from Gula Melaka)

We have provided the nutritional info to the best of our ability. However, it should be noted that the macro counts for Sugalight ice cream is not as straightforward as for other food products. This is due to the natural sweeteners (Xylitol and Maltitol), as well as Inulin. Whereas all 3 are technically carbohydrates (4kCal/100g), it is also known that they are not well absorbed by the body. A significant portion of the ingredients are broken down only in the large intestines to form shortchain fatty acids (prebiotic effect).

Our assumed calorie values are:

  • Xylitol 2.4kCal / 100g
  • Maltitol 2.1kCal /100g
  • Inulin 1.5kCal / 100g

These are also the values accepted and used in the US / EU.
