LOS ANGELES, Oct. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- While most people love the holiday season, they also dread the impact it will have on their waistline and overall health. This can make it challenging for baking moms and dads to provide traditional favorites that are often loaded with sugar but lacking in nutrition.
"One of the trickiest things about the holidays is trying to navigate eating healthy with so many decadent foods," said Trong Nguyen, CEO and Founder of Foods 2.0. "Reducing the sugar content in recipes is one of the simplest but most effective ways to bake a little healthier." According to the American Heart Association, reducing the amount of sugar eaten cuts calories and can help improve heart health and control weight.
Recognizing the impact that high sugar consumption has on our health – and especially the health of our children - Trong Nguyen developed Sugar 2.0, which replaces half the sugar content with naturally sweet soluble fiber, while maintaining the same familiar sweet taste of regular sugar. Soluble fiber aids in digestion and slows the absorption of sugar in the body. A second product, Sugar 2.0 + Probiotics adds high heat resistant, gut-friendly probiotics that can survive regular cooking and baking temperatures.
"Reducing sugar in half while adding fiber and probiotics to many favorite recipes can help make the holidays just as special, delicious and even nutritious," adds Nguyen. "You won't compromise flavor and soluble fiber helps provide structure and moisture retention that is essential for baking. You can feel really good about feeding it to your family and sharing with friends." Sugar 2.0 is also non-GMO and kosher.
While Sugar 2.0 can be used like traditional sugar in many recipes, Foods 2.0 also provides delicious, reduced sugar recipes for some favorite sweet treats at http://www.sugar2pt0.com/recipes/.
Sugar 2.0 is available for purchase at grocery stores across the U.S., online and now at all Ralphs stores throughout Southern California.
