Sunshine Bakeries’ latest innovation, Smart-Carb Low-G.I. Bread is the smarter choice of bread that serves up the goodness of whole-grain with beta-glucans in a low Glycemic Index (G.I.) reading that is friendly to the heart and the waistline.
Sunshine’s new Smart-Carb Low G.I. Bread is crafted to contain 90% whole-grain with beta-glucan that is extracted from oats. Beta-glucan is soluble dietary fibre that has shown to lower cholesterol levels (European Food Safety Authority, 2009) while exhibiting pre-biotic properties for improved gut-health and stronger immune system (Journal of Bioactive Carbohydrates and Dietary Fibre, 2013).
The inclusion of best-in-class whole-grains and seeds, such as rye, bran, rolled-oats, flax seed and sunflower seeds, adds a dose of crunchiness and nuttiness that is pleasing to the palate. In addition, the bread is also enriched with vitamin Bs, iron and contains no trans-fat. It has also been Halal-certified.
Each loaf of Sunshine Smart-Carb Low G.I. Bread (360g) is retailing at Recommended Selling Price of S$3.30 and will be available at leading supermarket, hypermarket and selected convenience stores from 19 April 2016 onward.
