CSR LoGiCane™ LowGI Sugar


CSR LoGiCane™ uses world first technology to develop a sugar with a naturally Low Glycemic Index (GI).

It works by spraying an all natural molasses extract onto raw sugar. This molasses naturally increases sugar’s resistance to digestion.

By having a low GI, CSR LoGiCane™ takes longer to be digested, resulting in a slower release of energy, which can help curb hunger cravings.

CSR LoGiCane™ represents innovation in sugar – the same sweet tasting natural sugar, with the added benefit of a Low GI rating of just 50.

CSR LoGiCane™ carries the official Low GI symbol and is available in 375g and 750g packet, at major supermarkets nationally.

How is a Low GI sugar Better for You? What are the benefits of low GI foods?
Regular table sugar or sucrose has a glycemic index or GI of 65 (moderate GI), CSR LogiCane™ has had its GI officially tested and has a GI ranking of 50, making it a low GI sugar.

The glycemic index is a measure of how quickly carbohydrates, including sugars in food are digested and converted into glucose in the blood. Low GI foods release glucose into the blood stream slowly, providing longer lasting energy.

Blood glucose levels in the body affect many different physiological processes. These include both physical and mental energy levels, mood, hunger and whether the body selects to use or to store its energy reserves (e.g. use or store body fat).

There is growing evidence to demonstrate that eating low GI carbohydrate foods as part of a low GI diet can help with the maintenance of a healthy, active lifestyle and is associated with better long term health.

How can a low GI sugar provide longer lasting energy?
The glycemic index is a measure of how quickly carbohydrates, including sugars in food are digested and converted into glucose in the blood. Low GI foods, including CSR LoGiCane™ release glucose into the blood stream slowly, providing longer lasting energy.

Does low GI sugar have the same calories/kilojoules as regular sugar?
Yes, both types of sugar have an energy content of 1690kJ/100g or 68kJ per 4 gram teaspoon.

Is it suitable for everyone or just those with diabetes?
For those with diabetes who need to regulate their blood glucose to manage their condition, LoGiCane is particularly beneficial providing slow and sustained release of energy. However, there is growing evidence to show that everybody can potentially benefit their health from eating more low GI foods as part of a healthy low GI diet and active lifestyle.

Isn’t the GI of regular sugar moderate not high as is commonly thought?
That’s true, the GI of regular table sugar or sucrose in 65 which is classed as moderate GI, new CSR LoGiCane™ has GI rating of 50.

Isn’t Fructose even better for you than CSR LoGiCane™ Low GI sugar as it has a GI of only 23?
Fructose is naturally found in fruit, but appears in the diet in many different forms. For example, in the US, fructose is commonly used to sweeten soft drinks in the form of high fructose corn syrup.

There is ongoing debate among nutrition experts regarding the merits of fructose in the diet. There is some evidence to suggest that it is handled differently in the body and may be associated with obesity and other health issues.

How is CSR LoGiCane™ Low GI sugar made? How can it be 100% natural?
Using world first technology, each CSR LoGiCane™ sugar crystal has a layer of polyphenols, a naturally occurring compound found in sugar cane molasses that increases sugar’s resistance to digestion, sprayed onto the crystal during the normal sugar refining step. CSR LoGiCane™ is made from 100% sugar cane.

When regular sugar is replaced by CSR LoGiCane™ Low GI sugar in a recipe, how does this impact the GI of the recipe?
This really depends on the type of recipe, ingredients and cooking time.

Has CSR worked with anyone to create CSR LoGiCane™ Low GI sugar?
New CSR LoGiCane™ has been developed by CSR in partnership with Horizon Science. LoGiCane is a registered trademark of Horizon Science Pty Ltd.

Where is CSR LoGiCane™ Low GI sugar cane grown?
Mossman, Queensland

Is CSR LoGiCane™ Low GI sugar derived from genetically modified ingredients?
No, CSR LoGiCane™ is 100% natural, made entirely from sugar cane. Using world first technology, each CSR LoGiCane™ sugar crystal has a layer of polyphenols, a naturally occurring compound found in sugar cane molasses that increases sugar’s resistance to digestion, sprayed onto the crystal during the normal sugar refining step.
