Thailand’s Khon Kaen Sugar Industry (KSL) has recently launched Kane’s Natural Golden Sugar, which is a sugar replacement product that is low in the glycemic index (GI).
“We expect the low-GI sugar to build a new market offering high-quality and premium choice of sugar to Thai consumers,” said Chalush Chinthammit, president of KSL.
KSL currently operates five sugar manufacturing plants in four provinces — Khon Kaen, Loei, Sa Kaeo and Chon Buri. The factory in Loei is the plant that makes the low-GI sugar.
Kane’s Natural Golden Sugar is made from natural cane. KSL is able to use Singapore-based Nutrition Innovation Co’s patented technology Nucane to produce the low-GI sugar. Nucane Life is a natural sugar that helps food brands achieve sugar reduction of up to 70%.
