Traditional white sugar has a challenger: Foodin’s selection includes several sustainable and organic sweeteners that are perfect for baking and cooking. Without compromising on taste, sweetening naturally and without white sugar gives your kitchen routine a kick!

Foodin’s natural sweeteners are sustainably produced, and all of them have a low glycemic index. The glycemic index indicates how much a sweetener raises blood sugar levels. Foodin’s sustainable and organic sweeteners raise blood sugar levels slowly, if at all.
