ENJOY LOW-SUGAR LIFESTYLE WITH AGAVE SWEETENED YOGURT
Eugene, OR – Looking for a yogurt made with natural ingredients that do not send your blood sugar sky-rocketing? Then look no further. From America's most innovative dairy-free foods company comes the world's first agave sweetened yogurt.
A creamy blend of organic cultured soymilk with organic agave syrup, So Delicious® Agave Sweetened Yogurt is packed with six active live cultures to promote optimal digestion, yet contains zero dairy, gluten or cholesterol. The product is fortified with Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin B12.
According to a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, agave's Glycemic Index (GI) value is five times lower than table sugar's, making it an ideal choice for diabetics or anyone seeking to reduce their sugar intake. Studies have shown that high GI foods make you hungry again faster because your body burns them rapidly.
One six-ounce cup of So Delicious® Agave Sweetened Vanilla Yogurt weighs in at only 130 calories with 5 grams of fiber. By comparison, Silk® Cultured Soy Vanilla, made with dehydrated cane juice giving it a high glycemic impact, has 150 calories and just 1 gram of fiber.
Turtle Mountain uses agave syrup to sweeten a number of other products, including Purely Decadent® coconut milk ice cream, So Delicious® coconut milk ice cream novelties and So Delicious® Agave Sweetened Mini Fruit Bars.
"We received extensive feedback from consumers asking for portion controlled desserts with low-sugar options," says John Tucker, Vice President of Technology at Turtle Mountain. "With agave sweetened yogurt you can enjoy something creamy and sweet without sending your blood sugar on a roller coaster ride."
The product is available in Vanilla, Blueberry and Plain. Suggested retail price is $1.49 per 6 oz. cup and will be available nationally at Whole Foods Markets and other natural food retailers in August 2009.
