Skinny Sugar hits Australian supermarkets
A new sweetener called Skinny Sugar is now available in Australian supermarkets.
Skinny Sugar is 50 per cent Australian cane sugar, 50 per cent erythritol sweetener. The product primarily aims to be a replacement for sugar used in baking. It comes in both white and raw sugar varieties.
Skinny Sugar is the first product endorsed by the Country Women’s Association of Australia (CWA) and its packaging carries the CWA logo.
CWA National president, Dorothy Coombe, said the CWA is concerned about Australia’s health and supports initiatives that improve health outcomes.
“Proceeds from the sale will assist CWA’s work advancing the rights and equity of women, families and communities, especially those living in rural, regional and remote Australia,” Coombe said.
Those baking with Skinny Sugar can use the product the same way they would use regular sugar, replacing the usual amount with the same amount of Skinny Sugar.
Skinny Sugar is available in 400gm servings from Woolworths supermarkets. The recommended retail price is AUD $6.50.
