Popular across Europe and referred to as the “sugar for diabetics” in Ayurvedic medicine,this natural, safe, organic sugar substitute sweetens naturally. SugaVida also doubles as the only bio-available, plant-based vitamin B12 supplement. One tablespoon a day is the equivalent of 80% of the FDA recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamin B12.
One tablespoon of SugaVida also provides 500% of the RDA for vitamin B6, which is known as a "sex-drive" vitamin.
For consumers, SugarVida offers a healthy, nutrient-packed alternative to processed sugar, high fructose corn syrup, stevia, agave and synthetic sweeteners in their cold and hot drinks, snacks and for cooking and baking, where 50% less sweetener is needed for recipes with SugaVida. For U.S. food manufacturers, SugaVida offers a finished sweetener ingredient with a lower melting point, which means substantial savings on energy bills.
SugaVida is derived from the sap of the Palmyra palm tree (Borassus flabellifer), which is grown organically and harvested sustainably in Southeast India, supporting local producers and biodiversity in Indian farming communities.
Flavorful and nutrient rich, SugaVida contains 15 essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, sodium and phosphorus—all of which are retained in SugaVida without the addition of preservatives or chemicals in the plant-based production process.
