HOW WILL SPECIALTY FOOD COMPANIES REACT TO THE NEW CONSUMER NEED?
The 2011 Diabetes Fact Sheet published by the CDC is chock full of alarming figures, including the one listed above. Luckily, there’s hope. Type 2 diabetes has been linked to poor diet & lack of exercise, and some studies suggest that maintaining a healthy lifestyle can reduce the risk of developing this disease by up to 58%. But do you have to give up the taste of the sweet things you love?
Blackberry Patch says no. With a line-up featuring 7 Sugar Free Fruit Syrups, Blackberry Patch was well positioned to release their two newest syrups, Sugar Free Chocolate & Sugar Free Honey Flavored Syrup. The Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup is made with real cocoa which really gives it an authentic taste, and the texture is that of traditional Chocolate Syrup. The syrup is perfect for topping sugar free ice cream or frozen yogurt, and works perfect for chocolate milk. The Sugar Free Honey Flavored Syrup is also a surprise, with real honey taste & texture, you’ll have a hard time believing it’s sugar free. Suggested uses include: yogurt topping, flavoring for oatmeal, using in teas as a sugar free sweetener and as a topping for pancakes & waffles. The best part about the Blackberry Patch line-up of Sugar Free Syrups? No funky aftertaste!
All the rich, bold, sweet tastes you love with none of the sugar? Looks like this specialty food company is reacting to the diabetes epidemic in a BIG way.
