Sweetness without compromise - Tate & Lyle launches new Light Cane with 40% fewer calories

| Filed in:
Thanks to Tate & Lyle, reducing your daily intake of calories, without having to compromise on taste, has never been so easy. New Tate & Lyle Light Cane has 40% fewer calories but all the taste of ordinary sugar. When it comes to saving calories we might think we have to swap the foods we like for a less appealing alternative – but not in this case! If you like the taste of sugar added to your tea or coffee, or sprinkled over cereal, this unique calorie-saving product will not disappoint. In fact, the taste is so good you won’t even notice the switch. Alongside its existing range of quality cane sugars, containing just 16 calories per teaspoon, new Tate & Lyle Light Cane contains just over 9 calories per teaspoon. Made from Granulated Cane Sugar, sucralose (a no-calorie sweetener that is made from sugar) and maltodextrin, Tate & Lyle Light Cane will help the calorie savings to add up easily. And, because it’s made with sugar, it’s just as versatile when it comes to cooking and baking. Use it in the same way you would ordinary sugar by referring to the weight guide on the side of the pack to get the quantities right. Tate & Lyle has joined forces with TV celebrity psychologist, Dr Linda Papadopoulos, to create a booklet called ‘Taste & Smile’. Including positive lifestyle tips from Dr Linda and some great recipes, it aims to communicate how to achieve a happy food balance and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. To receive a free copy of the booklet send an A5 SAE (34 pence second class) to Taste & Smile Booklet Offer, PO Box 100, Warrington, Cheshire, WA4 6FB or log onto www.tasteandsmile.co.uk for a downloadable version. Tate & Lyle Light Cane is available in most major supermarkets, including Sainsbury’s, Morrison’s and Waitrose, priced from £0.99rrp.
