Singaporean food purveyor Melvados and local startup Nutriient have joined forces to introduce a game-changing line of desserts that will revolutionize the way we think about sweet treats. This dynamic partnership has given birth to the ‘Better For You’ product range, featuring two extraordinary creations – the Low Glycemic Index (GI) Brownie and the Low Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookie.
A sweet solution for a growing problem
In a world where diabetes is on the rise, this innovative collaboration is here to make a difference. Statistics from Diabetes Singapore paint a concerning picture, predicting that the number of people with diabetes in the country will reach one million by 2050, making up 10% of the disease burden.
The Health Promotion Board’s call for healthier, more conscious eating has inspired Melvados and Nutriient to embark on a mission to improve public health through food innovation.
Indulgence without the guilt
Now, let’s delve into these delectable creations that promise to satisfy your sweet tooth without compromising your health. The star of the show, the Low-GI Brownie, tantalizes your taste buds with its rich dark couverture chocolate. It combines the perfect balance of moist, fudgy interior and a crisp exterior, creating a delightful blend of melt-in-your-mouth goodness and satisfying chewiness. Plus, the nutty crunch of walnuts and ground almonds adds an exciting contrast, taking your taste experience to a whole new level.
The Low Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookie boasts the same deeply indulgent chocolate flavor. Each bite is a revelation, with velvety richness and bursts of decadence provided by the chocolate chips. Whether paired with a glass of milk or savored on its own, this cookie promises to satisfy your cravings and elevate your snack game.
The healthier option: Low-GI and low sugar
Beyond their delicious taste, these desserts are designed with your health in mind. The Low-GI Brownie delivers up to 8.1 grams of protein and 4.7 grams of fiber per serving, with no artificial preservatives. In comparison, the Low Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookie contains just 13 grams of sugar, 2.8 grams of protein, and 2.3 grams of fiber per 40-gram serving. These numbers speak to a significant reduction in sugar content, increased dietary fiber, and a boost in protein – making them suitable for a diabetic-friendly diet that won’t cause your blood sugar levels to spike.
Nutriient’s ingenious innovation
Behind these culinary marvels lies Nutriient’s cutting-edge technology. Born from A*Star’s Singapore Institute of Food and Biotechnology Innovation (SIFBI), Nutriient has developed a proprietary mixture that can replace up to 100% of sugar in recipes, resulting in lower sugar content, a lower GI, and increased protein and dietary fiber. This breakthrough means you can enjoy your favourite treats without worrying about the negative effects of added sugar.
