Keto & Specialist Diets

Natural sweeteners have been used as a sugar replacement for many years. Monk Fruit Extract and Monk Fruit Blend, Erythritol, Classic Blend and Premium Blend are all frequently used in the specialist diet sector, whether meeting Keto, Diabetic, or elderly dietary needs. 

Traditionally most people turn their noses up when considering "specialist" diets as the image is of bland and plain food with a limited range of taste. On the contrary, the Sweetnz range of ingredients allows a diverse range of cafes, bakeries, cookie makers and other producers to make amazing products loved by their customers. From protein bars, cakes and slices, to peanut butters, our products are used by professionals to cater to the needs of specialist low carb diets. 

Among relatively "new" segments where we see growth are aged care facilities, and in catering to the needs of people post-bariatric surgery. It seems that people from all walks of life can benefit from natural sweeteners in their diet as they reduce their sugar intake. 

Important to our customers is the fact that sweetnz® products are natural and sweet - containing no artificial or synthetic ingredients and no refined sugars. Our products are 100% natural and can be consumed with confidence. 

The main drivers behind the trend toward No Sugar and Low Sugar is of course our concern with what we eat and drink. Increasingly we are concerned about our health and the health of those we provide for. The New Zealand Health Survey 2020/21 found that: around 1 in 3 adults (aged 15 years and over) were classified as obese* (34.3%), up from 31.2% in 2019/20. 

We should all do our part to change this alarming trend, and Sugar Free Foods is proud to play at least some part to improve our nation's health.
